A look at Arsenal’s best options to replace Lacazette next summer

Arsenal have had a rollercoaster start to their Premier League campaign. After an insipid start to the season with three defeats on the trot, they have somewhat steadied the ship by taking 10 points out of a possible twelve.

It is a team which is inconsistent, and Mikel Arteta and Edu will be looking at several prospective signings to make them a stable powerhouse, once again. Betting sites like V9BET may not have us as favourites to win any trophy right now, but Arteta must surely be preparing the squad to compete once again.

With Alexander Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah set to depart for nothing in the coming summer, the Gunners are planning on raiding two Premier League clubs.

Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins are on the North London outfit’s transfer list, according to The Sun.

Lacazette’s departure would free up a massive £180,000-a-week for the club, which still doesn’t look anywhere close to Champions League material.

Having a striker who has qualities of both Aubameyang and Lacazette will be beneficial for any football club in the world, let alone Arsenal.

Calvert-Lewin and Watkins tick that box for the club. Even though I expect Arsenal to sign less players next summer, when they eventually spend, they might spend big.

The duo won’t come cheap, but their signing will align with the Gunners’ philosophy of building a young squad.

Italian side Fiorentina’s Dušan Vlahović is another name which Arsenal might vulture around come the next summer window.

The 21-year-old has rejected multiple contract extensions, clearly indicating that he wants to leave. The Serbian might also be the best option among the three, for footballing as well as financial reasons.

Whatever happens, it will be intriguing to see which fresh face do Arsenal eventually land.

    None of the Sun strikers appeal.
    They are ordinary at best and cost way too much.
    Aubameyang Lacazette and Pepe ticked all the boxes apparently and cost 179 mllion and are paid a kings ransom. Now we are stuck with two unsellable 30 somethings and Pepe who has lost 40mill in value in two seasons.
    Saka and ESR cost nothing and are the best attackers in the side. Martinelli cost 5mill. Balogun nothing Nketiah nothing. Buying mega expensive attackers has not worked. Just use our youngsters till we find a couple who make the grade.

    I think we will steerwell clear of any one who is well known, and thus any one who costs more than 30m and also any one who wants over 100k p/w.

    Of the names mentioned Vlahovic seems to be the best bet. He would cost less, is just 21 and a consistently good striker. Hope Arsenal go in for him soon as other clubs are also looking at him.
