Alexandre Lacazette (signed!)


#1225

People really need to get over the ‘but he could have been cheaper last season’ bit.


#1226

Let’s first see who we get. Losing Alexis and only getting Lacazette would be crap as usual.


#1227

At £25m, Mahrez is worth the punt; pocket change these days.

In regard to Lacazette, there’s no arguing he is quality; it’s whether he can step it up to a new level at Arsenal against higher quality opposition and a price-tag reputation.


#1228

I’d have thought it’d be a bit more than that. Is that the rumoured fee?


#1229

few murmurs; but yeah fee is seemingly £25m or £41m


#1230

Because Wenger isn’t a manager who can anticipate what he needs prior to underachieving. He is a trial and error manager. He won’t go out of his way to sign players unless he absolutely needs to, and he only needs to because other people (players) force his hands by abandoning his sinking ship.


#1231

£25m would be an absolute bargain, would be delighted if that was the fee. Seems unlikely though, they could definitely get upward of thirty you’d have thought


#1232

For £25m I’d want to do just to keep him out of other clubs hands, even if it means making him ride the bench because we kept Arsenal.


#1233

I wonder if the sneaky bastard worked a release clause in when he signed a new contract.

We’ve done well to seemingly get this wrapped up so early in the window, if or most likely when Aubameyang moves we would have had real competition for his signature. Maybe talks break down between United & Madrid, then we’re fucked.


#1235

Get in done today! Please! :giroud3:


#1236

Glad he chose us over teams that did qualify for Champions League.


#1237

Wenger factor!! It’s still there!!! God’s be praised!!

#1239

The prices reported are more than fair for a striker in his prime banging goals for fun. There’s a real lack of available clinical strikers on the market and this is realistically the best we could have done. Good signing!


#1240

I’m slowly getting hyped about Laca


#1241

Is he in London?


#1242

Reporting it is most likely £53m, and suggested he will travel to Australia.


#1243

Tomorrow and Sunday will travel with the team.

Poor mans’ Aubemayang?
