Arsenal told one player they can sign if they sell Lacazette

Arsenal has been told that they should sell Alexandre Lacazette to make room for Lautaro Martinez.

The Gunners are looking to add some quality to their attack, but they have to sort out the future of the likes of Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah.

Both players are in the last year of their current deals and the club isn’t so keen to keep them.

Lacazette scored some important goals for them last season, but he is already 30 and Arsenal doesn’t want to tie down an older player to a new deal after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s shocking drop in form.

Arsenal has become one of the clubs looking to add Martinez to their squad, but they will struggle to sign him with Lacazette still on their books.

Kevin Campbell says the Argentinian is a player who they absolutely need to add now and even if it takes selling Lacazette, they should do it.

“Martinez? Now you’re talking,” Campbell told Football Insider.

“That’s a move that will get everyone on the edge of their seats and taking notice.

“He’s a very, very good striker and a natural goalscorer.

“Just when it looks like Aubameyang has gone off the boil, you get someone who’s full of goals.

“Aubameyang just hasn’t turned up in pre-season yet.

“If Martinez is coming in he will play, that does mean Lacazette will have to go.”

        😂👍 Initially, I thought it had something to do with Carlisle being the opposition, but surely they’re his limit? So now I’m super anxious, TRVL

    Like we really need another 60m plus attacker
    at the Arsenal rest home.
    But hey here some great deals for you Inter.
    1 .Swap Martinez for Pepe.
    2.Swap Martinez for Lacazette and 20 mill.
    But the really gun deal for you Inter is.
    3. Swap Martinez for a phalanx of Arsenal legends Torreira Kolasinac Elneny Mavropanos and Willian. All yours for free.
    I know you wanna snap our hand off.
    We are real generous eh?

    Yet another non story story.

  7. gunnerforlife says:

    Martinez is not leaving Inter after Lukaku has left for Chelsea. And anyway, Laca is doing much better than Auba so no point in selling him.

  8. Ozziegunner says:

    Arsenal has Aubameyang, Lacazette. Pepe, Martinelli, Balogun, Nheketia, Nelson, Willian, Saka plus Moller on loan, yet Arsenal are looking at strikers.
    When are the “powers that be” going to realize that the problem is the lack of quality in midfield to win the ball back, progress the ball, score goals and provide scoring opportunities to the forward line.
