As soon as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joined Arsenal in the January transfer window from Dortmund, fans were asking where does that leave Alexandre Lacazette. It was a valid question.
Aubameyang was not a Lacazette replacement
The France international had only arrived last summer for a club record fee from Lyon. He had not made a terrible start to life in north London, so signing a replacement for him seemed harsh.
However, the move was not about replacing Lacazette, it was about signing one of the most prolific forwards in world football. For half a decade, the Gabon international had scored goals in Ligue One and the Bundesliga, establishing a big reputation in the process. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal face a tough challenge today, as the Gunners host reigning Premier League champions Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners may have experienced a few difficult campaigns in the English top-flight. However, one facet of the north London side that has stayed stable is their form at home in the Premier League.
The Emirates Stadium a tough ground for opposition teams
The Gunners finished last season by winning seven of their eight games at the Emirates Stadium. The exception to that run was a 3-0 defeat by Sunday’s opponents Manchester City, who produced a sublime display in north London. .......Read more here.....

The Premier League transfer window is now shut and Arsenal fans have cause for quiet content with the Gunners summer business. Bernd Leno, Sokratis, Stephan Lichtsteiner Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi have all joined the Gunners during the transfer window.
However, the summer arrival of new boss Unai Emery cold a far big reaching impact than any of the clubs summer signings.
Arsenal spending small this summer

Alexandre Lacazette claims he’s not looking at Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as a rival for a place in the team, but rather as a teammate with whom he can form a powerful attacking partnership.
Lacazette arrived to the Emirates last summer and Aubameyang made the switch from Borussia Dortmund in January, with both transfer fees exceeding £50million. Meanwhile, the club said farewell to Olivier Giroud after five and a half years, during which the tall Frenchman made 253 appearances and scored 105 goals. .......Read more here.....

In the January transfer window, Arsenal signed one of the most lethal strikers in the European game in the shape of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabon international had been prolific at former clubs St Etienne and Dortmund.
Had previously played on the wing
Aubameyang is outstanding in front of goal when given the opportunities. In fact, such is his reputation for scoring goals, the 28-year-old is odds of 7/1 to win the Premier League Golden Boot, the third favourite to claim the award.
He arrived as a central striker, but he had previously played wide on the left of attack. Arsenal already had French striker Alexandre Lacazette in their squad. .......Read more here.....

According to TalkSPORT, Arsenal are ready to sell England international striker Danny Welbeck for £15million, with Everton reportedly interested in signing the former Manchester United star this summer.
Welbeck has less than a year left on his contract in north London, but the Gunners are not desperate to offer the forward a new deal. That means either keeping him until the end of his contract or selling him for a relatively low price this summer. .......Read more here.....

For anybody who has seen Arsenal play in the last season or two, or even longer than that, it has been impossible not to perceive where the main problems lie, as well as the place where only a tweak or two would do just fine. Going forward, there is very little you could pinpoint as wrong, especially in the Premier League towards the end of the season with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on great form since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund. .......Read more here.....

In the last few seasons, Arsenal seems to be slipping more and more behind the teams occupying the Champions League spots. For two decades, the team from north London were ensconced in those top-four positions.
However, standards have slipped dramatically at Arsenal in recent years, while their rivals have improved, mostly down to spending big on quality players.
Arsenal not spending big this summer
Arsenal have not spent money in the same dramatic fashion as some of their rivals in recent years. When the Gunners have spent big in the transfer market it has produced mixed results, German centre-back Shkodran Mustafi being the perfect example of the bad and Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the good. .......Read more here.....

While Arsenal may be going in search of new players to try and take the club to the next level, people are quick to forget that they have a series of high profile stars already that are more than good enough to do some great things with the Gunners. Mkhitaryan, Wilshere, Lacazette & Aubameyang are just a handful of the examples that come to mind, however, the latter of those four seems to believe that Arsenal need to add one more big weapon to their attacking force. .......Read more here.....

Apparently, Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has liked a Tweet linking Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele with a £87million move to the Gunners.
The Gabon international is a regular on Twitter and caused quite a stir on a number of occasions with his activity. While it is nice that the striker likes the thought of his former teammate joining the Gunners, it looks highly unlikely.
Arsenal reportedly have a limited budget
Reports coming out of Arsenal suggest that the club are only likely to spend around £50million, plus player sales this summer. With defensive reinforcements the priority, it seems unlikely the Gunners can sign enough defensive quality and Dembele, even if they do manage to offload some players. .......Read more here.....
