Arsenal urged to cash in on out of form star in the next transfer window

Arsenal is rebuilding their team under Mikel Arteta this season. The Spaniard became the club’s manager last year after they had fired Unai Emery.

Arsenal had hoped that Emery would be a better replacement for Arsene Wenger who had managed the club for more than 20 years, but the Spaniard flattered to deceive.

Arteta is now doing a more solid job and the club has backed him in the transfer market with impressive players.

They have signed the likes of Willian and Thomas Partey, but they are not done yet.

They have continued to be linked with a move for the likes of Houssem Aouar and Dominik Szoboszlai.

They need all the cash they can get to sign these players and Express Sports has tipped them to cash in on Alexandre Lacazette.

The report claims that the Gunners are already running out of time to cash in the underperforming Frenchman.

He isn’t the only player that the club has been tipped to offload when the transfer window reopens.

The report also urged the Gunners to try and cash in on Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Shkodran Mustafi.

Both players are already in the final year of their current deal at the Emirates and this represents the best time for the Gunners to try and sell them.

    Man lacca is a disappointment. The amount of goals he scored in the French league i honestly thought we were getting a grade A striker. This guy is just not good enough. Great personality but personalities do not win games. We have auba Gabriel nketia and this young American kid who can all play cf/st atm cSh in on lacca please. Let’s really get ruthless.

    Still way too much dead wood in the club before we can start rebuilding properly

    Dude’s been inhaling way too much laughing gas. It’s shocking what he’s become, from a striker who was talked of as world class to being outclassed by our academy graduates. Sell him asap, we have a conveyer of strikers coming through and we need to not block their pathway into the first11 with players like lacazette. Next season is the dawn of balogun, john-jules and martinelli. Nketiah needs to pull up his socks or follow lacazette out the door. Sigh… I have to change my name

    Yes, sell, before he is in last year. He is appeoaching 30 and is not phenomenal anyways.

      By moving on Lacazette, who’s form has dropped off alarmingly,we would open the door for the likes of Balogun,Nketiah and Nelson who all need to play on a regular basis if they are to fulfil their potential.Another alternative as CF is Pepe who is capable of scoring in or outside the penalty area.Arteta would have to work on his control under pressure in tight areas but as our main central striker, there would be less demands on his defensive responsibilities .Even excluding Auba, we have a number of options to replace Laca from within.

    Had so many expectations from Laca, sad he is not playing well anymore. We should sell him asap, which will be good for both, the player and the Club. Not so sure we should sell Mustafi he is improving under MA and we need cover in the defence specially since Saliba is not playing. We can sell Socrates though.

  5. Sue says:

    I do feel for Laca… whatever he tries he can’t pull off.. his confidence appears to be at rock bottom… funny how things change, as not so long ago you’d have bet on him scoring against all the big teams!

  6. Goonster says:

    I don’t know what happened to Laca. I have always rated higher him on pure natural talent to Auba.
    But man what a disappointment he has turned out to be.

  7. Ba Elkhirsawy says:

    I would sell, but problem is neither Eddie or Aubaclooks better now.

  8. Val says:

    I said when the summer window opened that I would be open to him going.

    I maintain that stance and think the club were scared to sell just because they knew they would have to add money to his fee to get someone else in.

    I don’t rate Nketiah that highly but at least he’s proactive, he was offside last night by half a hand otherwise he would have had a goal.

    Laca on the other hand looked like he wouldnt even make an Arsenal Vets side.

    Imho, he should go in either Jan or the summer, We dont need to go and buy another striker either if we get Balogun to sign, we have Auba, Eddie and Martinelli plus Saka and Nelson who again had a good game last night and cant get anywhere near the premier league team.

    It was nice to see ESR come on and grab an assist aswel

      Val, I agree with all you say and also how you put it. I suspect most fans would now agree that after three seasons with us LACA in not going to suddenly start being the player we once hoped we would be. I very much doubt he will be here next season and though a JAN sale is logistically unlikely, after last nights performance, young BALOGAN must now be seriously considered as coming up fast on LACAS heels.
      I think MA knows this better than we do and I see him having overtaken LACA BY NEXT SEASON, is why I doubt Laca will then be here.
      I also think it will take three more windows from now until MA has ALL his own choice players available and is not forced, by circumstance, to useany of the remaining deadwood from the AW and UE eras, as they will all be jettisoned.

    Sell Lacazette, I have always wanted Pepe to play deeper as CF/CAM, we also have Balogun who’s similar to Jao Felix .

    It’s time Arteta unleashes this teenagers who have all to gain .
