Arsenal might find positives in selling Alexandre Lacazette in the next transfer window, Ray Parlour has said.
Ray recently revealed that the sale would allow them to bring in a good replacement for Aaron Ramsey as soon as possible.
According to him, there is no goals in the current midfield and that is a big problem for the club that must be rectified quickly.
He added that the fact that Torreira, Guendouzi, Xhaka and Ozil will not guarantee goals in games is the reason Arsenal is struggling at the moment.
His words, “Well, I don’t think they’ll lose both,”
“It’s a situation where I don’t think you can afford to lose both.
“At the moment it’s very positive, the talk from the club itself looks like Aubameyang could be signing a new contract which would be brilliant news for Arsenal, and that could mean Lacazette could be on his way.
“There’s been lots of talk about him, Juventus has been mentioned for Lacazette with a player coming to Arsenal, I don’t know what sort of player is going to come to Arsenal that way.
“But I think Aubameyang is so important, he’s the one who scores you the goals.
“If you took him out of the Arsenal team now, who scores the goals?”
“I mentioned it last week, there’s no goals from midfield, that’s the big problem Arsenal have.
“[Bukayo] Saka scored a really good goal against Wolves, he was playing in the right position on that right-hand side, but that’s where they’ve really got to address in this transfer window.
“They lost Ramsey to Juventus who is probably the only player who can score goals from midfield and they didn’t really replace him with anyone.
“[Lucas] Torreira won’t score you goals, [Matteo] Guendouzi won’t score you goals, [Granit] Xhaka, [Dani] Ceballos doesn’t score you enough goals, [Mesut] Ozil isn’t even in the team.
“So that’s where they’ve really got to look at in the summer.
“As much as they really need a good centre-half as well, I think an attacking midfielder. But they’re hard to find and they cost a lot of money, the good ones.
“Whether Arsenal have got the money to spend, we’ll have to wait and see. That’s why they probably have to let Lacazette go and maybe get some money in to buy a midfielder.”
