    Could be. The Laca haters in tears again as Auba knows Laca's quality.

    Lacazette does a thankless task under Arteta. I hope he can get his conversion rate up a bit. Always feels like he misses a few sitters

    Replacing him is not a priority this summer. People up in arms need to consider what really needs work in the squad.

    ok with extension if we are paying the same. Please no increase. His performances doesn't warrant any increase.

    I mean we did extend El Neny and Mustafi's contracts so I'm not surprised if we renew Lacazette's. We love stockpiling average players.

    Dumb move extending unless it is team option based on performances. Lacazette gets paid more than Jamie Vardy, Song Heung Min, and other top attackers. If pay should be proportionate to his performances.

    Makes sense, you tie him down and lose the risk of him running his deal down to become a free agent. This way you have an experienced player tied down, he’s valuable wether he plays or not.

    Even if he gets dropped for a younger striker, Eddie who I think Arteta really likes, or eventually Martinelli, Laca on the bench is a strong option.

    He was never leaving, no cash bid came in for him.

    Not at 180K per week he is not. You play out the final 2 season and offer him a 1 year extension end of this season if he regresses further at a heavily discount rate.

    If we could have sold him, we would have Im sure of it.

    During our title winning sides, we had World Class players renewing on 1 year deals. If the players love the clubs, they will stay. We dont need more football mercenaries looking for their last pay day.

    PEA exception as he does not play like he is 31. He is still in his prime.

    That’s not how it works and you know this, he would end up leaving on a free if we did this.

    Think we can improve on Lacazette but I don't think the options available to us on the market this year are clear ready-to-go improvements.

    I'm ok with him staying. Hopefully he can up his goal scoring this year and continue being a good foil for Aubameyang.

    A 2 year extension on a deal with 2 years to go feels a bit excessive for a player seemingly regressing physically though.

    Feels like the same trap when we gave Elneny a new contract to protect his value. The problem with these players is that they have no value. Nobody wants them.

    Your dislike of Lacazette must have reached new heights with Arteta having full trust in him.

    Laca is to Hydro what Mesut is to Jury.

    Dishonest to his federation!

    Your love story with Laca was the highlight of 2019. Shame Covid came and wrecked it.

    Will never forget the icelandic fish days.

    Cheer up. No reason to hate me just for having different football opinions. We can all be friends and debate. Its what I thought the purpose of the forum was!

    I'm trying to not be on Lacazette's case this season but I think if you rate him you have low standards.
