FIFA 17 is on the horizon and if you are planning to build an Arsenal squad on Ultimate Team, you are going to be shocked this week with the latest Summer transfer rumors that according to L’Équipe, Arsenal will make an improved offer for Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette in a bid. Although Arsenal are leading the race to sign Toulouse striker Wassim Ben Yedder, they will have to fend of a late hijack from Tottenham Hotspur in order to secure his signature.
They involve highly sought after French strikers Lacazette and Ben Yedder, both of whom have been linked with various clubs around Europe. It’s no secret that Arsenal are after a striker and all those of you who have been using them on FIFA 16 in Ligue 1 squads may be in for a surprise this September.
Ben Yedder scored 17 goals in 35 Ligue 1 games last season as he helped his side escape relegation. In particular, as he is almost certain to get a beefy upgrade from EA from his default 78 card on FUT 16-we’re predicting between 80-82 for his FIFA 17 card.
Lacazette meanwhile is already an 84 on FIFA 16 and we have a feeling that EA may make him a ‘rare’ player with an upgrade to an 86 card which would be well deserved after the season he has had.
If either players move to Arsenal FC in the coming days, it is going to make for some extremely mouth watering chemistry links with the likes of Ozil and Sanchez.
