Marseille expect to beat Everton to sign outcast Arsenal striker

The arrival of Alexandre Lacazette at Arsenal has left our supersub Olivier Giroud in limbo, as the two Frenchmen are fighting over the role of centre-forward in the France national side. Obviously Wenger will have to play Laca as the Gunners usual start after paying 50 million for the 26 year-old, Giroud will not be happy over his lack of playing time with the World Cup looming next summer.

Oli has recently stated that he is happy to fight for his place when he said: “I won a few titles in my career, that is an important thing, but there is another thing which is important for me. And that’s the people [see you as a] loyal warrior on the pitch – that you always give your best for the team. And that’s why I want to carry on my good journey at Arsenal and I always want to give my best. I would love to win another title, or maybe more until the end of my contract. The motivation is here, always doing your best to make your family proud.”

Despite those words it would appear that Wenger may be keen to recoup up to half of his outlay on Lacazette and head off rivalry in the Arsenal camp by letting Giroud move on, and it was thought that he was very likely to replace Romelu Lukaku at Everton, but according to the Telegraph last night the much-maligned hitman is much more likely to return to France with Marseille and they are confident of getting their man. It will have helped that Giroud said last month: “I am not insensitive to the approaches of the French clubs and especially that of a mythical club like Marseille,” he told Telefoot.

He is likely to be first choice at the South of France club, and it can only help his national team spot by playing in Ligue 1, and in Arsenal’s favour he won’t be strengthening one of our rivals in the Premier League.

I firmly believe that both Giroud and Wenger will prefer that arrangement. Don’t you?



    lukau would probably be quite far down the list of forwards in world football, another midtable player whos going to make us world class is what some expert fans will think. a team of midtable players can only be a midtable team. its like spurs and southampton all over again overpriced midtable players who do nothing sold on as world class players and fans supporting the players who arnt upto standard.
    morata is the better player, lukaku isnt really going to put fear in anyone its like having cleverly next to scholes or schiderlin instead of keane

    1. Lukaku is a Beast Man ? ? He will improve his goal tally at Utd. There’s already photos of him training with Pogba in LA ? ? deals apparently agreed with Rooney heading back to Everton.

      1. Yep. Lukaku is an excellent striker
        He is not over hyped

        He is different to Lacazette though. Lukaku is very physical and uses his physicality to get around defenders. Lacazette uses speed and dribbling skills.

        I prefer Lacazette. He fits traditional Arsenal system of fast strikers with finesse like Henry, RVP, Wright

      2. I really doubt that. he is ia Mou type forward, agreed. But I never rate Lukaku as world class. And he scored 20+ goals last season, before that his stats were not so great

  2. If he had excelled when be was given the chance he wouldn’t have been sold.If Arsenal was an ambitious team he would’ve have been sold long ago and his spot given to someone more effective.I don’t know why he should receive such wages to be a so called super sub which is debatable.Wenger also will not be criticized for selling him since it’s fair enough.He doesn’t have the quality to play for a top team like Arsenal.Upon all his failures people still want him.Let’s just wait till Lacazette is out with a long injury then we will know what reality is.It seems like we’ve not learnt our lessons.

  3. Money bags Inter are now joining City and Chelsea in the chase for Sanchez.

    Barcelona are set to offer 30 million euros for Bellerin, now that the player has apparently asked Wenger that he wants to leave.

    The player wants the move but Arsenal refuse to offer more than £35 million for Mahrez, Leicester holding out for £50 million.

    Arsenal have increased their offer for Lemar from 30 to £40 million, Monaco want £80 million.

  4. Özil On Lacazette

    “I’m really looking forward to it,” Ozil told Arsenal Player. “He’s a very good striker
    who has scored many goals in Ligue 1, not
    just this season but in previous seasons
    too. We’re really happy to have such a class striker here with us.
    “From what I’ve heard, he’s meant to be
    very good, always hungry for goals and ice-
    cold when he gets into a scoring position.
    My friends who follow the French league
    know him well and have told me that I’ll
    definitely have fun with him on the pitch.
    “I hope that he’ll be able to take us further
    with his goals. I’m sure he’s happy to be
    here and to be able to play with us, and
    we’re pleased to be able to assist him and
    help him to score as many goals as

    1. Yup, Ozil basically confirming that he is staying ?

      More twists as Monaco have left Lemar out of the promotional picture for their new away shirt which has just been released. ?
      The player is Close friends with Lacazette and it seems as if Lemar is now forcing the move to Arsenal. It may take a little more than the 45 million euros which will be the third bid that has been offered for the player. Fingers crossed.

    2. To what are read ozil definitly is staying with arsenal .it is time to focus to solution and search all
      possibility in the market.The market have plenty of good first class player but unknown and with
      fare price -surerly arsen and company are looking to it and iminently we wl know the next

  5. Since we haven’t heard Monaco reject our new bid “yet” I guess it’s game on . Monaco actually felt ridiculous with our first bid and decided to ridiculously set 80 then hope we negotiate better somewhere along the equilibrium. I’m sure they are aware Lemar wants to join us. As for Sanchez if inter submits a 35-40 million bid? It’s adios Amigos!!! To the energy bunny and welcome to James Rodriguez (just love the guy and don’t know why clubs are not going crazy to get him)
