European giant watches on as Arsenal ace stalls on contract talks

The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are seriously concerned about the future of Alexis Sanchez…

The Chilean has done well this season, having already picked up 15 Premier League goals, but things off the pitch, seemingly, aren’t going as well as they are on it.

Sanchez’s contract saga has been ongoing all season, with the Chilean reportedly demanding up to £250,000 per week to remain with the club, and with the clubs seemingly no closer to an agreement – his future is certainly up in the air.

The risk of him leaving is even greater now, too, with reports from the Mirror suggesting that Juventus are in the race for the Chilean – with the club set to make a move for him over the summer.

Interestingly, the Mirror are reporting that Sanchez is stalling on an offer of around £180,000 from Arsenal, and with the sides so far apart – it could lead to only one conclusion.

His current contract is set to expire at the end of next season, meaning that a sale could be forced upon Arsenal over the summer, and Juventus could look to pounce.

His departure would come as a huge blow to the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern, especially given that the Chilean is arguably their most important player. Without his goals, this season Arsenal would be in far worse shape, and so losing him could be disastrous.

Sanchez could also not be the only figure departing Arsenal this summer, with reports over Arsene Wenger’s future still ongoing – with the Gunners reportedly drawing up a 4 man shortlist of replacements should he decide to move on.

It is looking set to be a very interesting few months at the Emirates – and the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are hopeful of a positive conclusion.
