The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their side to sign a new striker this summer…
Olivier Giroud has been an excellent option for the last few years, and Lucas Perez has come in and done a job on a number of occasions this season, but long-term, change is definitely needed.
There was a tangible excitement in the Transfer Tavern, then, when reports linked Arsenal with a move for Ligue 1 star Alexandre Lacazette. A lethal striker, Lacazette has bagged 24 league goals so far this season.
The bad news, though, was that Man City were also mooted as being in the race – leaving those in the Transfer Tavern feeling concerned.
That hasn’t put the dampeners on the Arsenal fans enthusiasm, though, with a whopping 60% of fans confident that the Gunners will beat Man City to the signing of Lacazette this summer.
Indeed, whilst those in the Transfer Tavern are unsure, many are hoping that the deal comes to fruition, as Arsenal will desperately need to replace the goals provided by Alexis Sanchez – who has been touted with an exit this summer.
