Our Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait for the season to get going as they reckon they can challenge for the Premier League title.
Indeed, despite being out of the Champions League, that factor might actually prove helpful as it is more than likely that Arsene Wenger will get his side to focus solely on winning the league.
For sure, then, it could be an exciting time at Arsenal but there is still a significant cloud of doubt going about the club at the moment concerning Alexis Sanchez’s future.
Indeed, the Chilean still hasn’t signed a new deal and with his contract expiring next summer, there can be no doubt that something has to give soon.
And, according to The Mirror, that could come in the shape of the international star handing in a transfer request at the club in a bid to try and get a move to Manchester City.
For sure, then, this story might be about to come to a head and our local Arsenal punters might not like it when it does.
It really does seem as though Sanchez is going to try and leave the Gunners before the end of the window and Arsenal would certainly be best in trying to sell him.
For sure, they can force him to stay but he’ll be leaving on a free next summer more than likely and so cashing in seems to be the best solution.
Certainly, then, the Gunners need to sort this before the start of the season ideally.
Thoughts, Arsenal fans? Let us know below!
