Selling their best players has been somewhat of a sewing motif among the life of Arsenal fans, though their relative upturn in form in recent years has put an end to that.
For now at least.
The memories of the likes of Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie came flooding back for the Gunners propping up the bar this evening, following reports from Italian outlet CalcioMercato.
They claim that Alexis Sanchez IS keen on a move back to Serie A, following a reported bid from Juventus.
Having previously plied his trade for Udinese, the 26-year old has been in North London for two years after moving from Barcelona after the World Cup in 2014, establishing himself as one of the most potent attackers in the Premier League.
Still, his second season at the Emirates Stadium proved somewhat frustrating and he missed swathes of the campaign following an injury.
With the Old Lady thought to be keen, his spell in the nation’s capital could prove to be a fleeting one.
Should Arsenal keep Sanchez? Can they afford to sell him?
