One has to wonder how the looming Griezmann decision could affect Arsenal. This is pure speculation but if Griezmann opts to make the switch to the Nou Camp it will surely be for an astronomical fee (perhaps Atleti is preparing for his exit which is why they already snatched up Lemar) . Now Lemar doesn't fill the void left at striker if/ when Griezmann departs and there was heavy interest in Lacazette by Atleti before he signed with Arsenal (correct me if I'm wrong but Lyon and Atleti had a fee agreed upon but could not navigate around a transfer ban? ) . if Arsenal could recoup the fee, or sell him for more than what they paid, for Lacazette by selling to Atleti maybe they go after Malcom or even Dembele, either of which would probably fit better into this side than Lacazette does with PEA now here.

Agree0 Disagree0

Without Lacazette Arsenal only have one good striker. Laca and PEA are both clearly excellent players and selling one would be a huge mistake if we're serious about breaking back into top 4 and winning the Europa.

PEA is also comfortable on the left wing which fills a big void as we still don't have any solid wingers except up and coming Nelson. Front 4 of Laca/ PEA/ Mkhi/ Ozil backed up by 2 deep mids including Torreira and Ramsey (? ) is mouthwatering.

Selling Lacazette would be very very stupid.
Chelsea - Morata, Giroud,
Man Utd - Lukaku, Rashford (& Sanchez can play striker) .
Man City - Aguero, Jesus

Arsenal - Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Lacazette!

You can't rely on one good striker.

Spurs - Kane and?
Liverpool - don’t even have a traditional “striker”
‘16 Leicester City - Vardy +?

Arsenal would be just fine with PEA and Welbeck.

Totally agree Q, 2 into one won't go and trying make it do so will cause more problems than it solves.
I doubt very much Emery will play 4 forwards next season no matter how many posters try and find a way of getting all our attackers on the pitch at once in the real world this isn't going to happen.

Liverpool and Spur are very vulnerable with there lack of options on top.

Son makes a good alternativ for Spurs, but not great.

Liverpool have been lucky that Firmino has been fit most of the season. If not they would have to play Solanke. (Firmino, by the way is a typical striker supported by two inward forwards, wich means he sometime fall back into a false nine. )

Leicester played 4-4-2 and had Okazaki/ Ulloa, who complemented Vardy perfect and had different skills according to the game they played.

Anyway it makes no sense to sell Laca if not replaced by a different type if that is prefered. Rather sell Welbeck and get a Giroud/ Llorente/ Austin type of player (tall, strong, leathal in the box when pressing for a goal)

The point was you don’t need two strikers of such quality to compete in the premier league. And the whole thought process of selling Lacazette would be to replace him with a winger who could bag double digit goals.

Pea and Lacasette are the wrong age and far too good to play back up.
Pea is a Rolls Royce striker why turn him into a porche wide player to accommodate a poche striker? That makes no sense at all.
Pea will not rotate and will make his feelings clear when he ain't happy just ask Dortmound.
The reason we were able to get him above more successful teams is because of his temperament which scared many potential buyers off.

Don't make Pea angry, you wouldn't like him when he's angry :-)

PEA seems quite accommodating of lacazette, I would rather try and find a way to fit them both in and if one gets injured we still have the other, imagine if you sold laca and PEA suffered a bad injury early on, welbeck sole striker for the whole season, I barely trust him to put his shoes on the right feet.

You could play Ozil behind Pea and Lacasette as a front 3 but I think we will have to wait and see how Emery wants to set us up before we really have idea what and who we need.
I personally think he's going to Want to make us much more difficult to beat first and foremost.
