Without wanting to seem dismissive of Arsenal’s attempts to keep the player, Alexis Sanchez is at this stage a surefire candidate to be playing his football away from the Emirates this season, if any of the many media outlets are to be believed.
Following a series of incidents indicating the Chilean’s stay with the Gunner’s is akin, in his mind at least, to having his teeth pulled by none other than Mr Wenger himself, much has been made of a potential move across the city to Chelsea. Whilst Arsenal will pain to see their star man leave for a divisional rival, history tells us the side undeniably have form in this very department.
Of course, it’s not just Antonio Conte’s Chelsea who sees the talisman as a wonderful addition to their side.
France’s RMCS Sport have it on pretty good authority that Sanchez’ agent has met with representatives from PSG. Commenting “Alexis is sensitive to the Parisian interest and the PSG project,” said one of the Gunners’ loved ones.
Whilst it’s unclear as to what ‘Gunners loved one’ would divulge such information, it’s quite likely that the French champions would happily chew Wenger’s arm off if the opportunity arose to twin Sanchez with Edison Cavani upfront. No doubt the club’s greatest pairing since Zlatan partnered the Uruguayan just last season.
This term Sanchez has knocked in an impressive 18 goals for the Gunners this season, a third of the teams total. Added to that the double Copa America champion has pitched in with 9 assists.
