Is Alexandre Lacazette Actually The Answer To Our Attacking Options....?

There are reports according to one of Sky sources claiming that Arsenal are set to raise their offer for Lyon and French forward Alexandre Lacazette.

However, his move to the Emirates stadium points question to ask that, will the proposed Lyon forward actually be a solution to our striking problems upfront.

Undeniably, it’s clearly known that we have a problem. Arsenal is clearly known to be a club renowned and capable for free flowing provides attractive attacking football bursting with flair, creativity, and superb goals. However, we’ve has struggled somewhat to score the vast amount goals of years gone by.

In the last campaign, we netted 65 goals, pretty well the fourth best in the league behind Tottenham Hotspur, and Leicester City.

Our issues with goal scoring come with the club consistency, rather than the sheer amount. In all competition during the last campaign, we failed to net in 21% of games.

The lack of goal scoring shows that we were guaranteed not winning over a fifth of the games we played through the last campaign, the figure – 21% is far too high. In compare to the Premier League champions, they only failed to score in only 8% of their games all through the season.

To me, I believe our inconsistent in goal scoring probably might have be because of us not having an inconsistent and unpredictable striker.

As a result, the Gunners have had an initial offer Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette ignored and we are now rumored to be preparing a second bid to approach the French club in order to secure his services. So, would the Frenchman solve our striking issues?

This is however, not necessary, Lacazette in the French club 34 Ligue 1 games last season which he played in, he netted in 14 games, less than 50%.

He also played two to four games without scoring a goal, but the player brilliantly came back in the latter half of the seasons, scoring in seven out of ten games with eleven goals, a period of the season that Arsenal are notoriously terrible in.

It’s an interest thing to note that, while the Frenchman could be seen as a replacement or probably an improvement on Olivier Giroud, we should also know that he is not a certain 20+ goal a season striker, particularly having never played nor featured in England before.

We may well be better served in our pursuit of an highly-rated goal-scoring winger to replace Giroud rather than a replacement in his compatriot, but only time will tell.
