Arsenal target Calvert-Lewin and Watkins to replace Lacazette

Arsenal have reportedly identified Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Ollie Watkins as potential replacements for Alexandre Lacazette.

Lacazette is in the final year of his contract at the Emirates. And has not been offered a new deal by the club, who are now looking at options to replace him.  Arsenal could look to sell in the January transfer window rather than losing him as a free agent at the end of the season.

French forward has scored 67 goals in 174 appearances for the Gunners. Helping Mikel Arteta’s side win the FA Cup in 2020 and reach the Europa League final under Unai Emery. The 30-year-old was fairly influential last season but is yet to start a Premier League match this term, with reports claiming Arteta is now ready to sanction his departure.

And With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also turning 33 years of age next summer. Mikel Arteta is under pressure to bring in a younger forward. Arsenal may also agree to let Lacazette leave the club in January. But Arteta will only sanction his exit if the Gunners are able to secure his replacement.

Calvert-Lewin, 24, enjoyed a breakthrough season at Goodison Park last term, scoring 21 goals in all competitions. Watkins, meanwhile, thrived in the Championship with Brentford. Before moving to Villa last year and netting 16 goals during the 2020-21 campaign.

The north London club spent almost £150m on new signings over the summer but are ready to back Arteta further this winter. Watkins still has around four years remaining on his contract at Villa Park. And the same applies to Calvert-Lewin after he signed a contract extension with Everton in March 2020. So for Arsenal to sign either player at the end of the season, they’ll most likely have to break the bank and pay a lot more than their respective market values.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are said to be interested in Club Brugge’s Noa Lang. And talk of Daniel Ek potentially raising his bid to buy the north London club has intensified after comments from club legend Thierry Henry.
