Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are eagerly looking up to hear just what the Daily Express have to say and considering it is all about their star man Alexis Sanchez, we cannot blame them.
Danny Welbeck was speaking about life at the North London side and admitted that not only is he far happier now he has settled in at the club but that he is loving playing alongside such a talented player like Alexis.
Arsenal’s number 23 claimed: “It’s a pleasure to play with Alexis. He’s persistent, he keeps going and they are [the attributes of] somebody I like to play alongside,
“It’s the same with all the other players in the team. I’m really getting to know the players much better now and hopefully now we can go on a nice run of winning games.”
As one of our punters notes, no wonder Welbeck considers it a pleasure to play alongside a player like Sanchez, who is heads and shoulders above the majority of the Arsenal side in terms of his ability!
Our resident Gooners have also digested the news that Barcelona’s Pedro has reportedly handed in a transfer request and that is lifting the early season gloom.
While Arsenal fans would love to see Pedro arrive, our more sensible Gooners realise that Theo Walcott has just returned from injury and a defensive midfielder and centre back should be at the forefront of Arsene Wenger’s transfer plans.
Arsenal fans. Have we seen the best of Alexis Sanchez as yet or is there even more to come? Are you excited about the prospect of him and Theo Walcott playing together? Let us know your thoughts below.
