The Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern don’t want to see him leave…
Despite a strong start to the season for the Gunners, there has been one overarching concern amongst the Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern.
The issue surrounds one of Arsenal’s most important players, and it is seriously worrying the Gunners in attendance.
The player in question is Chilean attacker Alexis Sanchez, who has been in fine form so far this season.
A saga surrounding his Arsenal future has drawn on all season; and the Daily Mirror is reporting that the Gunners and Sanchez are in a stalemate over a proposed new deal for the Chilean.
They are reporting that whilst talks have been ongoing between the two parties since August, no agreement has been reached – and that has alerted the likes of Juventus and Manchester City.
Manchester City pose a very real threat for the Gunners, with the prospect of riches and the tutelage of Pep Guardiola often simply too much for esteemed players to ignore.
The recent rise of Juventus back to the top of the European pyramid has also made them a very attractive prospect too.
With Sanchez’ contract expiring at the end of next season, this issue has become a serious concern for the Gunners in the Tavern.
Sanchez has been a very important player for Arsenal this season, having already bagged 6 goals in just 10 Premier League starts so far.
