The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to see a bit more firepower in their attack next season…
It looks like they could get their wish, too, with the Mirror reporting that the Gunners remain keen on Ligue 1 hotshot Alexandre Lacazette. Indeed, any deal will be tough to come by for the £40m-rated striker, with the likes of Man City and Atletico Madrid also in the race for the talented striker.
Indeed, Lacazette would offer Arsenal something very different to what the likes of Olivier Giroud brings to the table. Relentless pace, attacking and running – the Frenchman truly is one of Europe’s most lethal players.
The need for a player like the striker is very clear at Arsenal. Olivier Giroud has struggled from the start this season, whilst the likes of Danny Welbeck and Lucas Perez are not at the quality which the Gunners in the Transfer Tavern typically demand.
With so much quality on display at Arsenal, a new forward would takle the club to the next level – and our landlord thinks that they simply must beat Man City to the signing of Lacazette.
He is undoubtedly one of Europe’s best, as the compilation below shows…
Who will win the race? Let us know below!
