The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are huge fans of Alexis Sanchez…
Since moving to Arsenal he has been absolutely vital, and his importance to his team is growing with every single season.
It has caused quite a bit of nervousness in the Transfer Tavern over the last few weeks, then, given that his future remains uncertain – with his contractual situation proving difficult to manoeuvre for Arsene Wenger.
The Arsenal fans in the Tavern are convinced that Wenger just needs to pay up and give Sanchez what he wants, and it would appear that they are in the right to do so.
Of course, you can only pay huge wages to your best players – but if you look at the stats, Alexis Sanchez is not only one of Arsenal’s best players – but he is one of the best players in Europe.
As per Opta Joe on Twitter, nobody in Europe’s top 5 leagues has created as many chances from open play as Alexis Sanchez this season – with the Chilean currently sitting on 55.

This stat hasn’t surprised the Arsenal fans in the Tavern, with many feeling that it simply illustrates their point that he needs to sign a new deal.
Our landlord thinks that if Arsenal let him go, it could spell disaster.
