We could have sold Walcott and Chamberlain at the start of the transfer window, and then got Lemar as a replacement, which would have meant we get a very good player, along with Lacazette, and they would have had a whole pre season together and the rest of the team.
It would also have meant we would have two top quality players, we get our business done early, as well as getting Lemar cheaper, and get rid of players that are realistically fringe players and earning more than 200k a week between them.
This might have even persuaded Ozil and Sanchez to stay.
But what does Wenger do?
Keeps Walcott, sells Chamberlain, doesn’t get Lemar,
Still we broke even, which is the most important thing. and Ozil and Sanchez are fed up with his lack of ambition.
