It is going to be a bit of a balancing act for Arsene Wenger, as the Arsenal boss needs to negotiate the middle ground between spending big and bringing in more top quality players to the Arsenal squad and disrupting the close knit feel and balance that we now have.
You could say that the Frenchman got lucky with his transfer acquisitions last summer: with Alexis Sanchez, Calum Chambers, Danny Welbeck and even Mathieu Debuchy settling into the side quickly. Many of our rivals like Man United, Tottenham, Liverpool and Man City have spent lots of money on a lot of players in recent years only to see them struggle in the Premier League.
But while you can get around this problem by signing players already playing in England, that is not always the way. So if Wenger is planning to sign anyone from the French club Olympique Lyonnais this summer, as reported by Metro, perhaps it is a great idea to sign two that have played well together all season.
The fact that Alexandre Lacazette and Nabil Fekir are the two top scorers of Lyon, with 13 and 29 respectively is obviously one reason for Arsenal to sign them but the fact that they know each other´s games and work so well together could be a huge help to them settling into a new team.
This double transfer swoop would cost the Gunners around £60 million but when you consider that Man United paid that for Di Maria only to see him struggle, do you think Wenger’s plan to sign both of these French stars is a good one?
