One debate that has continued to dominate media space in the summer transfer window especially as it concerns the Premier League is who has made the best choice of striker among Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea.
While Arsenal signed Alexander Lacazette from Olympique Lyon to shore up their attack, Man Utd added Romelu Lukaku to their attacking force and in the same vein, Alvaro Morata arrived Chelsea as a potential replacement for the ‘problematic’ but effective Diego Costa. All three are high profile strikers with intimidating CVs in the major leagues of Europe.
For Lacazette, he has consistently notched up over 20 goals in the last four seasons in the French League. Though it may be argued that the French man is coming from a less competitive league, I however have no doubt he will score goals in buckets with the array of midfielders at Arsenal. In the same vein, after a difficult start to life in England, Lukaku has consistently found the back of the net in the colours of Everton and he can only get better now that he has moved to a better team and with his bosom from Paul Pogba playing behind him. For Morata, despite being a fringe player for Real Madrid he has a better scoring ratio than the preferred Karim Benzema. The Spanish international also enjoyed a fruitful two years stint in Italy with Juventus. Whether he will bang in the goals in the Premier League like he did in Spain and Italy is another kettle of fish.
For those in doubt of credentials of any of the trio, they will need to wait till at least the end of the season. Let’s hope the three strikers stay away from injury.
