Arsenal keen to sign player seen as Lacazette replacement

Abdallah Sima has emerged as the latest target for Arsenal ahead of the summer transfer window as they continue to rebuild their team.

The Gunners are in transition after making Mikel Arteta their latest manager.

They have spent the last two transfer windows reshaping their squad by selling unwanted players and bringing in reinforcements.

Sima has emerged as a player that Arsenal would like to add to their squad and the Senegalese could join in the summer.

Todofichajes insists that Arsenal might get rid of Alexandre Lacazette and Sima is one player that they are targeting as his replacement.

The 19-year-old has been a revelation for Slavia Prague this season, as he cannot stop scoring.

He has been likened to Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry and has 19 goals and 5 assists from 29 competitive games this season.

Arsenal has some of the best attackers in Europe at the moment with the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang playing for them.

However, they still want to add Sima who would likely replace Lacazette.

The report says Arteta’s side is prepared to pay 15m euros for his signature, a fee that should be enough unless a competition increases their offering.

  1. Well W Ham signed Soucek from Slavia Prague, and Sima has a great goal tally despite being 19. Seems like a non-risky bargain at £10m

  2. 1.88, 19 years young, two years left(2023).
    He would be good if we managed to offload Eddie, and Balogun left without renewal.
    There is Gabi M. and Moller but MA uses Gabi on the wing when he pkays him snd we are not sure Moller is ready

  3. Which source comes this transfer rumour, hope it’s not cuz Lacca is going nowhere, maybe except going 2 the toilet.

  4. I don’t know but this guy game is all about pace he is more like a younger aubameyang. Hope this is not a low risk pepe signing.

    1. Agree his playing style looks similar, but he’s also way more powerful in the air and maybe more capable as a CF than Auba (in terms of holding the ball and playing in others), maybe.

  5. How many targets does Arsenal have? Surely it is better to get the one they really want, rather than a “scatter gun” approach?
    Arsenal needs to take the approach of identifying and buying young talent to develop for their squad or sell on. This will allow Arsenal to build a war chest to buy a ready made player they need. There should be some bargains in the coming depressed market due to the pandemic.

    1. I think we need to be looking out for promising, hungry players like this who are early in their careers and have something to prove – agree we’ve got to be careful to get the right ones though. One would hope this signing would be properly vetted if it were to happen.
      I guess we want to avoid just going after anyone we can get for cheap (scattergun approach) but also not blowing the whole budget on one signing that might not work out (as has been the case with Pepe so far, although hopefully coming good).

  6. Do we really need this guy? For me I will say no, why waisting money when we have Balogun, MA should do everything possible to keep Balogun
