Arsenal supporting punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up with interest at the latest claim from Metro.
The publication report that Arsene Wenger is set to make the signing of Barcelona player Alexis Sanchez official.
The Chilean international forward has been heavily linked with the exit door at the Camp Nou and indeed a move to the Premier League.
After turning down a move to Liverpool as part of the Luis Suarez deal, he has instructed his representatives to agree a deal with Arsenal.
This has placed our Gunners fans in a buoyant mood with the majority of them thinking at one stage that Wenger would fail to net anyone once again.
However, with Sanchez set to accept a £150,000-a-week five-year offer, we think it could be a summer to remember for last season’s FA Cup winners.
Wenger is looking to kick on from last season and knows that his side need to once again challenge for the title and stop getting absolutely hammered by their direct rivals.
Arsenal fans. Will Arsenal’s capture of Alexis Sanchez represent the moment they truly became one of the Premier League’s elite once more? Let us know your thoughts below.
