Lacazette has long been expected to leave the Emirates, and has It has recently been related to its use as a final weight. for Arsenal to make a play at Sevilla Youssef En-Nesyri.
According to Mail Online, the club also made considerable attempts to sign Tammy Abraham to replace the Lyon native before his eventual move to AS Roma from Premier League rival Chelsea.
With Arsenal finally looking to build a full squad in the combined image of Mikel Arteta and Edu Gaspar, England’s international pair Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Ollie Watkins could be ideal candidates to fit into the overall balanced options at No. 9 under the Spanish.
How does England’s pair compare to current attacking options in the Emirates?
One of the last missing pieces to Mikel Arteta and Edu Gaspar’s puzzle has been filling the role of center forward for the long haul.
With Alexandre Lacazette and club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the wrong side of their 30s and hoping to leave after the conclusions of their current deals, find a suitable replacement, or dare I say an upgrade, in the forward duo it is central to the long-term Project taking shape at London Colney.
Although Lacazette has proven to be a good finisher based on data and a good focal point on the front line, he still hasn’t been able to pull off the numbers many expected to see from him after his arrival from Olympique Lyonnais in 2017.
By contrast, Aubameyang has reached the poacher’s expected scoring heights given his return of goals on display at Borussia Dortmund. Ten goals in thirteen league appearances after his highly publicized move in January 2018 was an excellent start to his time at Arsenal.
Consecutive 22-goal seasons in the Premier League is exactly what the doctor ordered, but only ten out of twenty-nine last season were well off the mark, and fewer than Lacazette’s total of thirteen. And despite all the goals scored, the tactical balance and correct fit has never really been seen with Auba leading the way.
Could Dominic Calvert-Lewin or Ollie Watkins be better at Arsenal? This is what the data tells us. It’s up to you.
