Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are growing increasingly concerned about the uncertain future of one of their star-men, who’s yet to put pen to paper on a new deal.
The Evening Standard states Arsenal and Alexis Sanchez’ continued inability to tie the Chilean ace down to a new deal has led to an increase in interest from Italian giants Juventus, who want to bring the former Udinese man back to the Serie A.
Alexis has excelled in his two years in the Premier League, although he hit a blip of form midway through the current season, but uncertain future surrounding manager Arsene Wenger may provide an impact upon Alexis’ future.
Many fans want Wenger to leave this summer and, whilst that may not happen, it’s highly unlikely that the Frenchman will stay beyond his current deal in 2017. Should Arsenal fail to achieve success next season, the end of an era could coincide with a mass exodus.
Should Arsenal lose Alexis, it would be a massive step backwards for the Gunners so our landlord is demanding they hand the Chilean whatever he requires to stay in north London as, without him, Arsenal may well be doomed.
How crucial is Alexis Sanchez to Arsenal’s chances next season? Let us know in the comments below!
