    But when Lacazette has similar stats in EPL as Dembele in Ligue 1, he is not an upgrade at this point.

    Also if Lacazette scores 28 goals in his last Ligue 1 season compared to Dembele's 13, he is not an upgrade. When Dembele scores similar amounts you can say he is even or maybe an upgrade. But even then he hasn't proved himself in EPL.

    How do you reckon there have been Barcelona rumours about Lacazette and not Dembele? Or has there? For me it's pretty clear why. Barcelona is above those other clubs you mentioned who are interested in Dembele, so it's clear hint that Lacazette is the better player now.

    If Coutinho is available, think we'd ask for a direct swap?

    No thanks Coutinho is absolutely not what we need.

    The maximum contribution Coutinho has done in 1 season in EPL is 13 goals and 7 assists.

    Coutinho for Laca? People are seriously underrating Lacazette on here. If we are to go anywhere in the coming seasons we need to build the team around him. Wouldn´t swap him for anyone at Barca I think, besides the obvious one.

    I'd like Coutinho here but not at the expense of Lacazette.

    Spend 100+mil plus Sanchez like wages on Griezmann, or spend probably half that on an equally good if not better player like Laca. It's a no brainer tbh, shame brain is exactly what the Barca board seem to be lacking when it comes to their transfer dealings.

    Head turned then? I'd like a 'but' after that statement, namely a '...but I'm staying at Arsenal.'

    100M pounds minimum. He’s probably not worth it in a vacuum but he is to us.

    We can’t afford to lose him.

    I would be keen for us to see what youngsters we could get in return - perhaps the next Cesc?

    1 less assist overall than Lacazette then, lol.

    He isn't though?

    We can easily afford to get rid, get to play the superior striker in Auba upfront full time and sign some wingers.

    You messing around?

    Griezmann is levels above Laca.

    If you get massive money you obviously accept it and look to sign a better quality of wingers than we currently can.

    What lol? That guy was with Liverpool for 5 years and this is the maximum he scored in one year. And it was in response to a post which said that Coutinho scored lot more than Laca. That was just a sample of a post that shows how people cook up stories to make him look bad because they had deemed him poor even before he joined Arsenal.

    With Ramsey gone he’s definitely our second best player at worst.

    There’s such a gulf between him and Auba and the rest of the squad it’s unreal. If we sell him our only striking options will be PEA and Nketiah.

    We’d definitely need to buy another first rate player to replace him on top of what we need. Without him next year and a PEA injury we’d be under threat from the likes of Everton and Wolves.

    We're not selling him ffs.

    Barca are not desperate enough so shell out 100m or whatever for Laca, they have more pressing needs and issues in midfield and defence.
