I find it very strange that there is rumour going around that Unai Emery in thinking of selling the Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette after just one year at the club, and I am at a loss to understand any reasoning behind it. The Frenchman is (and always has been) a prolific goalscorer, and once he found his form and fitness last season he proved it very clearly.
It must have been a tremendous blow to see Aubameyang come in and take his place in January, but he at least knows that his team-mate is also a great striker, and all big teams need at least two quality strikers to be successful. And as for the suggestion that Emery doesn’t rate him I find that preposterous when our new boss was managing in France while Lacca was banging goals in for fun.
I am simply not buying it. Surely we all know that it is the defence that needs sorting and we don’t need to interfere with our strike force (maybe a winger would be handy) so why change a winning combination?
If it was me I would probably get rid of Danny Welbeck, who is just a glorified non-goalscoring winger, but only if he doesn’t sign a cheap contract extension.
What do you think? Could there be the slightest bit of truth in Emery wanting to get rid of Lacazette?
