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.
