If signing a 70 mil player is that deep you sign him. You don't not sign him because of an out of favour 30 year old with 1 year left, that's stupid. Especially a club who have a history of literally paying players to play elsewhere as well.
You can't tell me Lacazette can't get a loan move somewhere in the entirety of world football with us subsidizing his wages if it came down to it, he's not that sh*t.
I just see some of you who aren't Lacazette fans trying to pin this whole transfer on him for some reason when there are many moving pieces to this. Including the bumbling pair of Arteta and Edu who don't seem to know what they are doing.
Its not just on him. Its on us not being able to shift footballers. We wanted a RB, we wanted a CM, we wanted a striker, we wanted a AM. But currently everything is proving tough due to not being able to shift footballers first due to squad space.
Its that simple. If no clubs want Lacazette on his 180k a week wages then you can't sign Lautaro for £60M on 120-150k a week wages. We finished 8th ffs, why do you think we can suddenly stockpile players on dumb wages?
