“Arsenal are in a horrible position when it comes to sorting out Aubameyang’s contract offer. Barcelona and Real Madrid have been mentioned and they have the funds to buy him.
“Edouard is too similar to Lacazette, and if he was to move, it paints a different picture. Edouard would then fit into the Arsenal team as the No 9.
“You would still need to give him time as he’s not been playing every week against Premier League quality.”
Nicholas continued of Edouard: “He could certainly play at Arsenal because the way they play, his style would be more than suitable for it.
“The problem is getting the judgement right over whether he’s ready right now, playing every week for Arsenal compared to who is there already.
“I’m a big fan of Alexandre Lacazette, and Edouard has got quite a bit of Lacazette in style within his game.
“He certainly would not come to England straightaway and score 20 to 25 goals in a season unless Arsenal find a renewed belief and they get the whole team right.
