This is a theoretical question for you Arsenal fans, because until the summer transfer window closes or until Arsene Wenger completes the signing of another big money centre forward, I will not fully believe that the possibility of the Gunners completing the transfer of Alexandre Lacazette has gone.
Even though The Sun is reporting the president of the French international star’s current club Lyon as saying that he expects Lacazette to stay where he is, at least until the winter transfer window in January, we all know that things can change quickly in the modern world of football.
January is when the Spanish La Liga club Atletico Madrid will be able to sign players again after the transfer ban, and Lacazette and Lyon had already agreed the transfer with them before this. However, Simeone is also being linked with a move for his former star striker Diego Costa from Chelsea.
If the transfer of Lacazette to Arsenal really is off the cards though, who should we go for instead? Could it be the time for Wenger to try to hijack the move of Alvaro Morata to Man United? Maybe he should push on with the proposed idea of a swap deal with Man City between Aguero and Alexis Sanchez. What do you think gooners?
