Our striker squad is not ideal. Lukaku & Dzeko fit in very well in our system as a no 9, a role Arnautovic is well suited for as well. But Thuram is more of a support striker, I see him as a back up for Lautaro. Sure, if Arnautovic remains fit & plays every game, we can call this transfer window very clever. But at the moment its very risky to go into a season with 1 proper No 9 and 3 players who play best as support striker. Specially when that No 9 is 34 years old. So if nothing changes by end of the month, the Rating of 5/10 in the striker dept is quite fair.
Maybe Inter will play different. I believe midfielders will push forward more and have more of an influence in goals scored.
At some point in the season we should look at the total package and not single out players for the amount of goals scored. Let's say that Thuram doesn't score alot of goals but he let's the team play more free flowing, and the team scores more goals from that? Wouldn't that be great?
