There have been many mutterings about Alexandre Lacazette being eased out of Arsenal after the arrival of PE Aubameyang this January, as it appears that Arsene Wenger has decided that the Frenchman not adapted to life in the Premier League and has now failed to score in his last 12 games for the Gunners.

The latest Arsenal rumours are suggesting that the Gunners have now turned their attention to the man that replaced Lacazette’s goals at Lyon, Nabil Fekir. Being put into a more striking position this season has worked out perfectly for the local lad, having already scored an amazing 21 goals in all competitions for Lyon this season. The 24 year-old has netted 16 in just 22 League games and he is probably much more likely to be a success in England as he can play as an attacking midfielder or winger as well, rather than being an out-and-out front man like Lacazette.

The question must be asked why we would go back to Lyon for their next big thing after failing so spectacularly with Lacazette, but perhaps with his flexibility he would be great either alongside PEA or linking up with him as a provider.

But surely Arsenal have more pressing positions that need strengthening much more urgently like in the Defensive midfield and centre-back roles. Arsenal’s biggest problem this season is the failure to stop other teams from scoring rather than putting it in the back of the net themselves!
