Pep Guardiola should look to recruit Arsenal striker, according to former Manchester City and England winger Shaun Wright-Phillips. 

City’s lack of a number nine is once again a point of contention this season. After failing to pursue Harry Kane over the summer, Pep Guardiola is being questioned about his lack of a true striker this season. City will be connected with a number of players during the January transfer window. Former City player Wright-Phillips, on the other hand, believes that Arsenal striker Lacazette could be the solution to their issues. “Someone mentioned it to me the other day, and I responded, ‘For me, I’d sign Ollie Watkins.’ Wright-Phillips told The Sun, “Or even Lacazette, he knows where the goal is.” “He knows how to bring others into play, and I always believe that when he plays for Arsenal, their front three play better, and there is more of a link-up between them.” Lacazette, a seasoned player, is slated to leave Arsenal this summer. However, a January transfer could be appealing, especially if someone is ready to pay the Gunners a large sum of money. Lacazette, in terms of short-term options, may actually do the job for City if they go after him. He’s having a good season for Arsenal, so there’s no reason why he can’t continue in the same vein for City. 

The main question is whether he’d sign a short-term contract. Lacazette, who is already in his 30s, will almost certainly demand a lengthier deal. City, on the other hand, is unlikely to do so. 

But, in terms of the type of striker City require right now, Arsenal’s Lacazette is a viable possibility.
