Why Arsenal Shouldn’t Sign Lacazette

Well it looks like it’s finally happening, one of the longest transfer saga’s in recent memory, Alexandre Lacazette is set to sign for Arsenal after what seems like three seasons of being linked with the player. Arsenal were linked with this striker that Atletico Madrid couldn’t even negotiate a transfer ban for, which tells you how good he is if they can’t flout the rules for him like Barcelona did for Arda Turan.

Half the price – Arsenal Cheapskates!

Alexandre Lacazette has only scored twenty goals in three consecutive seasons in Ligue 1 so he clearly is not consistent like attackers Eden Hazard or Kylian Mbappé. Lacazette is cheap too, he will only cost around £50 million, which is nearly half what Manchester United paid for Paul Pogba. This is more penny pinching by Arsene Wenger it seems as he settles for a no name striker once again.

I’m sorry but to sign a player who has only played in around thirty top flight European competition games is just not good enough, sure he scored goals against the best of them but that means nothing compared to the Premier League.

What does Lacazette add that an English player couldn’t? That is what I ask, players like Jermain Defoe, Charlie Austin or even Wayne Rooney, all English and could cost about the same. Sure, he might add pace, finishing and off the ball talent mixed in a way that frightens most of Europe’s top defenders but he is unproven in the best league in the world.

Ready to pounce if he fails to shine

In conclusion, Alexandre Lacazette signing for Arsenal may be a sound piece of business, bringing one of the finest finishers in the game today; it may take Arsenal to the next level. Nevertheless, do not think for one second there will not be English pundits who will remind you of anything I have mentioned here, if he fails to be anything but a sterling success.

    Eden Hazard has to be one of the most overhyped players in the history of the Premier League. I’m not saying he’s not a very good player, but he gets mentioned in the same breath as players like Neymar, Ronald and Messi when he’s never even come close to what they have on an individual level. Wish people would stop worshipping a guy who’s never made full use of his potential.

    I stopped reading halfway through on the way to leaving a scathing comment akin to the infamous John Henry Liverpool tweet before something in the comments caught my eye; so I read the last paragraph and re-read the piece. Your sarcasm wasn’t clear but on re-reading, I heard it in Ray Wilkins voice on Sky Sports. It sounds exactly like the ignorant thing they would say…

      For the record I don’t endorse flouting any transfer bans or indeed rate Charlie Austin higher than Lacazette

    You comparing with players l8ke Hazard and Mbappe. It’s funny because is it the same league that Hazard left and hit the ground running at EPL but as for Mbappe don’t compare him with Lacazette because he just got into the news after one season
