Now that Arsene Wenger can once again select the France international striker Alexandre Lacazette for his Arsenal teams, after the former Lyon forward was left on the sidelines for a while due to a knee problem, Arsenal fans should get to see what the boss thinks is his best attacking line-up.
And at the moment, perhaps unsurprisingly, the three players that seem to be the first choice for Arsenal in attack are the club’s three most expensive transfers of all time. With Mesut Ozil and Aubameyang on either side of Lacazette, the Gunners have more than £150 million of attacking talent on the pitch, but our England international Danny Welbeck has plans to break into this triumvirate.
After his match winning display against Southampton on Sunday, where most pundits also gave Wellbz their Man of the Match award to boot, this does not sound as unlikely as it would have a week or two ago, but is it really realistic? As reported by Sky Sports, Danny has declared his belief that he can operate with the French and Gabonese forwards and he seems to think that competition for places will actually help him to shine for Arsenal.
He said, “As you’ve seen, I can play with Pierre and with Laca.
“It is nice. It gives you that added motivation. The competition is there so you are going to improve and better yourself.
“I’ve had that throughout my whole career. Being at an academy where players come from all over the world and it is the same here, you are always going to have that competition. It is healthy.
“I know I can link up with plenty of the players in this team.”
Welbeck also has the added motivation of needing to prove himself worthy of a place on the plane to the Russia World Cup with the three lions this summer, so can he break into the best Arsenal front three?
