‘Number one’ Alexandre Lacazette identified for summer move

Arsenal are strongly linked with the sale of Alexandre Lacazette in the coming close-season, and Andre Silva is supposedly the man wanted to replace him.

The Eintracht Frankfurt striker has been in red-hot form this season, scoring 20 goals and notching five assists in only 23 appearances in all competitions thus far, more than one goal contribution per game, and that sort of form will not have gone unnoticed by the big clubs.

Arsenal are the name who are being linked with such a move, with MilanNews24 claiming he has become our ‘number one’ target to replace Lacazette.

The Frenchman will be entering the final 12 months of his playing contract at the end of the campaign, and his future appears to be away from the club.

Recent Arsenal rumours claimed that the Gunners have already earmarked the fee they expect to receive for Laca, with TodoFichajes claiming we are expecting to bring in 35 Million euros in the coming window.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has recently earned the regular starting role at the heart of the Gunners attack, with his team-mate starting a number of matches on the bench of late, and that could well be the biggest signal of all that Lacazette’s time at the club is close to it’s end.

Would fans be excited to hear Andre Silva was coming in as Laca’s replacement, or is there better available elsewhere?

    Haven’t seen him player, but am a little wary of another Brazilian on the books. It could all get a bit cliquey. I’m stereotyping of course but Brazilian players tend to follow the money and why shouldn’t they considering their social backgrounds and what a tough society they come from. However as we’ve often seen they can also be extremely mercinary.

    Sorry he is Portuguese, which makes me look rather stupid. Again.

    Interesting proposition…still young, obviously found his scoring touch in Frankfurt…watched him play a half dozen times this season and have been impressed by his ability to finish in a variety of different ways, plus his movement off the ball…Frankfurt is one of the more enjoyable teams to watch this season due to their direct, free-flowing style of play…wouldn’t pay over 35 for him, so hopefully we can get close to that for Laca, although I would suspect at his age, with only one year left on his deal we would be lucky to get 25 or 20 and a player in return

    Interesting for sure. Guy played in Portugal, Milan and Franfurt and he is still 25. He is 1.84-1.85 height. Good scoring record.
    Two years left in contract.
    I have watched him couple of times in Milan and Portugal, I cannot judge.

    Only a few days ago MA has said that talks with Laca will start very soon whatever that means!
