Though on the whole this term Arsenal have had little problems finding the back of the net their recent run of just five goals in their last six Premier League fixtures may give cause for concern for Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.

Forward Lacazette is by some distance the top-scorer in Ligue 1, his tally of 27 goals in 33 starts helping Lyon to mount something of a challenge to PSG before the Parc des Princes clinched the title, whilst Fekir has been the creator in chief with his tally of nine assists and 13 goals helping the 21 year to secure a spot in Didier Deschamps senior French national team set-up.

New signing Alexis Sanchez has been superb in his debut season in England and though Olivier Giroud has impressed in patches the French forward may find himself up against new competition for his spot as Arsenal’s central striking weapon.
