Firmino is the comparison i would use. Both will get a similar amount of assists to their goals. Like you said, with young legs around Lacazette, he'll glue the attack together with clever flicks and passes. Really think we should just offload Auba.In the EPL IMO there is only kane and cavani who hold the ball better and bring people into play. Both those strikers excell as they have young fast legs around them, at time last season when we played laca with saka and esr we had that. We lacked a clinical edge in the final third but played alot better and the goals came from everywhere.
I do rate bamford for his holdup play, will be interesting to see if he can do it again. He runs the channels well and produces against top teams. If he gets 17 again next season and performs well then i would like to see him given a shot.
