Arsenal fans are feeling pretty good about life at the moment and are enjoying a few pints in the Football Transfer Tavern to celebrate.
The capture of Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona last week appears to have lifted the mood around the Emirates Stadium and there is a genuine feeling that his addition could see the Gunners challenge on all fronts next season.
The Chilean was one of the standout performers for his country at the World Cup in Brazil and managed 19 goals for Barcelona last season as they finished second in La Liga.
His £32 million signing came as a relief to Gunners supporters, who were growing anxious that this transfer window was going to be a repeat of 12 months ago, when the club missed out on a host of top targets.
But the signing of Sanchez has taken the weight off the supporters shoulders and they are now looking forward to some more exciting new additions.
Newcastle United full back Mathieu Debuchy is expected to complete his switch imminently, so the next port of call will be a defensive midfielder.
Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira has been the man most heavily linked but reports yesterday suggested Wenger had called the deal off due to the World Cup winners’ wage demands.
But with this new found positivity amongst Arsenal fans, we have come up with five reasons why we believe the deal can still go through.
