Arsenal prepared to add Lacazette to their offer for La Liga star

Youssef En-Nesyri has emerged as a transfer target for Arsenal in recent weeks as they seek to add more goals to their squad.

Arsenal has a star-studded attack on paper with the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Gabriel Martinelli unstoppable on their day.

However, recently they have struggled for form and have been unable to help the club with enough goals.

Even when the defence has been good enough to keep clean sheets, the attackers struggle to score the goals needed to help them remain competitive.

The Gunners will look to fix that in the next transfer window and Rudy Galetti via Transfermarketweb claims Arsenal want En-Nesyri.

The report claims that the Gunners have been in touch with Sevilla over signing the striker.

They are now prepared to make a juicy offer to the Spanish club by adding Lacazette to their proposal.

The Frenchman is in the last year of his current Arsenal deal and he is currently not in the plans of Mikel Arteta.

The report says they will add him to their bid for En-Nesyri in the January transfer window, hoping to sign the Moroccan sooner.

The former Levante striker already has two goals and two assists from five competitive matches this season.

    Martinelli has probably shown himself to be a flash in the pan

      What?????

      1. Silentstan says:

        Apart from his initial splurge he has underwhelmed, particularly since returning from injury where he has failed to last 90 and provided no end product.
        As for Nesri his stats are no better than ordinary and would rather have Ne Long

  2. Dennis says:

    No way it’s going thru.
    Laca will run down his contract and walk for free

    En-Nesyri is only average at best. If we go for a striker there are many many better options.
    And I agree Ne Long would be a star here – way better purchase as there is no risk involved.
    I have to agree with Stan in that Martinelli has gone downhill quite a lot, but I wouldn’t write him off just yet. He’s still a kid and inconsistency is to be expected, so I’m still hopeful.

    Laca would be still better than this Moroccon, play Laca just behind Auba or Nketiah and lets see how it works. Laca has got good hold up play and he will draw defenders to himself allowing other frontmen to strike by giving them space and time.

  5. Kgoana Mamogale says:

    I would rather go for Alex Isak instead. I don’t think this would be a great buy. I still don’t understand why Arteta can’t start with both Aubameyang and Lacazette. He’s trying out options and it would not kill to try them together. My view is that Lacazette still has much to offer if only given a chance. Otherwise for future I would like to see the club go for Alexander Isak. Equally let’s give Martinelli enough chance, he is young and it would cost us nothing as he’s already our player.

  6. siamois says:

    Why would they pay a penny for Laca when they can sign him for free in the summer and sign a pre-agreement with him in January?

  7. Grandad says:

    Lacazette is our best CF , and superior to Auba and An Nesyri in my opinion.To get the best out of ESR, Odegaard and Saka they need a player, who has a good first touch, can hold the ball under pressure and link short passes to create space.Auba does not have these skills but Lacca does..As he loses his pace, Auba, like Vardy, will become less and less effective I’m afraid , and indeed this is what is happening this season.Let’s hope Arteta recognises this before it’s too late for all concerned.

    1. Johnze says:

      But Auba is the best player. With all afd ons (350/week as the deal was 55 for the 3 years). He wont accept going anywhere because no one will give him this money. Arteta knows that probably so he is forced to play him, hoping for some goals (because of course, auba still very decent), but he wont start trying to force him out because the situation is fragile and he cant afford a mess for the next half year maybe 1,5 years like the ozil situation.
