Reports: Gareth Bale linked with shock swap deal to Arsenal

Wales international and Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale could be back in the Premier League come January.

The 32-year-old was a regular for Carlo Ancelotti’s Real this season, until injury got in the way of his momentum.

Meanwhile, an unexpected report from the Spanish outlet Densa Central, as cited by The Sun, claims Arsenal have their eye on Bale with Alexandre Lacazette going the opposite way.

“Arsenal have bizarrely been linked with a January swoop to sign Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale in a swap deal for striker Alexandre Lacazette,” the Sun reported. 

“Both players are in the final year of their contracts, and the Gunners are rumoured to be keen to part ways with their centre-forward in the New Year.

“The Spanish news outlet has boldly announced that Arsenal have offered Lacazette to Real in exchange for Bale,” the report concluded.

Could the impossible happen with Bale joining the bitter enemy in North London, and how furious would Tottenham Hotspur fans be? The next coming weeks will tell.

In the meantime, the Gunners are preparing to take on Aston Villa at the Emirates this weekend.
