The Lacazette chants will be ringing through the night at the Transfer Tavern tonight as the Arsenal fans’ excitement grows about their potential new signing.
Lacazette looks all but set to sign for Arsenal. The French forward could be exactly what is needed at the Emirates to make a serious push for the Premier League title a real possibility.
Obviously, it would be unfair to put all the blame on the likes of Olivier Giroud, goals do win games but there are a lot more problems with Arsenal’s squad when you scratch beneath the surface.
Defensively, they aren’t as solid as a Premier League winning side needs to be and their midfield is full of players riding their successes from the 2012/13 season such as Aaron Ramsey, and players who constantly get injured like Santi Cazorla.
Attacking wise, with Lacazette joining they should be fine, so long as Sanchez and Ozil stay.
On that note, here are the two players Wenger needs to sign after Lacazette, to mount a title challenge.
