Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern playing a quick round of pool have been thrilled by reports in the press today, which state the Gunners will splash the cash to make a new man the highest-earner at their club.
The Mirror reports that star-man Alexis Sanchez will be offered a five-year deal that will take him to the summit of the Gunners top-earners, whilst German midfielder Mesut Ozil will also be offered a new deal.
Alexis is said to have impressed everyone at the club following his £29m arrival from Barcelona last summer, with his attitude and performances making the Chilean a firm-favourite in North London.
He provided testament to those beliefs after the Copa America, after he elected not to take an extended break given by the Gunners as he trained during his holiday time, ensuring he returned for Arsenal’s opening Premier League game against West Ham.
Arsenal fans, is Alexis Sanchez deserving of a new contract? Let us know below!
