Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are in a cheery mood to start the week following yesterday’s victory over Bournemouth and the lads by the pool table are now discussing some exciting news.
Alexis has been an instant hit since his 2014 arrival at Arsenal for a fee of £32m, as he’s helped the Gunners to FA Cup glory last year and to kick-on in the battle for the Premier League title this term.
However, his form has attracted the attention of some of Europe’s big guns and Arsenal want to ensure they won’t be losing their prized asset anytime soon.
Sources indicate the deal Sanchez is in discussions for is a five-and-a-half-year deal worth a staggering £51.5m, which will raise Alexis into the highest earners at the club once more, alongside the Gunners’ record signing Mesut Ozil.
Our landlord believes this is a massive deal and a statement of intent from Arsenal, that shows they are capable of keeping hold of their key players.
Arsenal fans, can Alexis fire you onto further glory in the coming years? Let us know in the comments below!
