Any truth in the rumour of a swap involving lacca and lemar cheers Ed’s.

{Ed002's Note - I would doubt it. Arsenal have shown no interest in Lemar. Atletico do have an interest in Lacazette - but he is not their first choice.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed you say arsenal have no interest in Lemar but didn’t they appoint a third party to sanction a deal?

{Ed002's Note - Right a third party was asked to approach AM on behalf of the club, but interest was dropped when Arsenal were told the asking price - which they could not afford. Thomas Lemar (AM/LW) is still being offered around either for sale or for a six month loan with an obligation to buy. Arsenal were unimpressed with the €60M asking price or loan deal of €5M with the obligation to buy in the summer which will put them off - they could look to asking for a loan with an option to buy but Atletico want him off the books. Has also been offered to Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs. England is attractive because of the high fees. Those hawking him around will next look to Germany before thinking about Italy. Ideally, Atletico want their money back. Wolves are seeing if they could strike a deal but have concerns over FFP.}

How is it that Lemar has fallen so far? He looked incredible in that season at Monaco, and for France that year too.

{Ed047's Note - didn’t that lad Bakayoko, I think, have a great season at Monaco, move to Chelsea and was then hopeless.

I think I’m right in saying that, makes you wonder what goes wrong.

Some of the best younger players just get to a certain level then drop like stones for one reason or another, their footballing abity doesn't Just vanish but something somewhere does, it shows again that having the footballing ability is only part of the package and it's the mentality that really separates the best from the rest.
Like Ronaldo or not the blokes abilty mentality dedication and determination are all equally part of his fantastically successful career.

I was never a huge fan of Bakayoko, he was always the legs for that team rather than the brains. Not surprised he struggled elsewhere. Lemar though, he had incredible vision and talent. Wonder what would have happened if we signed him.

{Ed047's Note - I cant say I watched Bakayoko but he came with the usual fanfare and I thought he was going to be this Viera type powerhouse for them.

Lemar on the other hand genuinely looked the business and I really hoped we’d get him, so definitely a player in there. Could it be something simple like the language.

I’d fancy Arteta to get him playing though but sounds like it’s not happening.

That all good observations, but would you swap him for Lacca tho.
Imo, lemar pea and pepe can do some damaging with their speed and it could be just the final peice upfront, don't get me wrong I love Lacca in the team but if we can get that Monaco Lemar then maybe we should consider with the swap some cash as well lol.
