Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are licking their lips after hearing the latest concerning their club, which suggests a big deal is imminent.
The Daily Mirror states that Alexis Sanchez is set to sign a staggering five-year deal worth £40m, with a contract worth £150k-a-week.
It’s stated that Alexis has already agreed the deal in principle with the Gunners, who will reward the Chilean Copa America hero for his fantastic displays during his debut season in English football.
Since arriving for £33m from Barcelona last summer, Alexis has quickly shown himself to be one of the best players in the Premier League and he’s quickly developed himself into a crucial part of the Gunners set-up.
Alexis helped the Gunners retain the FA Cup and Arsenal are hoping to reveal the new contract in a sensational double announcement, with Mesut Ozil also set to put pen to paper and secure his long-term future with the club.
For Arsenal the deals would prove the major improvements the Gunners have made in recent years, with Arsene Wenger’s side now able to keep hold of their best players and fend off interest from Europe’s big guns.
In the bar, there’s genuine belief that Ozil and Alexis can be the catalyst towards vast success in the coming years as fans dream of lifting the Champions League.
