How Would Arsenal Line Up With Alexandre Lacazette And Riyad Mahrez In The Team

With summer transfer window officially open, rumours regarding player transfers have already started to pick up with Alexandre Lacazette being announced as an Arsenal player, and Riyad Mahrez being linked with Arsenal as well. In this case, the Gunners will be hoping that the rumours do come true as they look to recover from the disappointing campaign last season.

After 20 straight seasons of achieving Champions League football, Arsenal finally saw their mystic run of form end last season, after missing out on 4th place to Liverpool. It is evidently clear that Arsenal are lacking depth in the squad and the existing players being either too old or injury prone. Arsenal certainly deserve a spruce in the squad and Alexandre Lacazette and Riyad Mahrez are the best available players to provide that.

Alexandre Lacazette

The French football sensation has risen in popularity and skills over the years after consecutive campaigns of goalscoring brilliance. The 26-year-old has spent 8 seasons with Lyon in Ligue1, scoring 129 goals in 275 appearances for the club. He was amongst the top goalscorers in Europe last season, with 37 goals. Lacazette will be walking straight into Arsenal’s first team as the lead striker and could provide the necessary goals for his side. Though Olivier Giroud is ahead of the pecking order in the France national team, it might be Lacazette who could take his place in the Arsenal set-up as the 3-back formation suits the pacy Laca than the less-mobile Olivier Giroud.

Riyad Mahrez

With Arsene Wenger already stating his interest in signing Riyad Mahrez in the past, the Algerian is more or less going to be a big part of Arsenal’s future in the coming years. After having achieved the unimaginable with Leicester City in 2015/16, Riyad Mahrez didn’t quite live up to his Player of the Year Performance last season. But a move to the Emirates could be the best thing for both the Algerian and Arsenal as they look to embark on Premier League success.

Both Alexandre Lacazette and Riyad Mahrez are undoubtedly quality players and will have the opportunity to become world class at Arsenal. If a possible move goes through for both players and Sanchez leaves, Lacazette would play up top with Ozil, Ramsey, Mahrez and Xhaka playing behind him. Kolasinac and Bellerin would take up the wing-back roles with Mustafi, Mertesacker/Holding, and Koscielny forming the back three with Cech in goal.

The absence of Champions League football might be a blessing in disguise as it is during January that Arsenal go through the dramatic slip in the Premier League title race. I assume that Europa League might serve the Gunners’ Premier League cause well, as they would not experience a morale-killing defeat at the hands of a Bayern or a Barca.

It should be Arsenal all the way this season.
