The Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern tonight look concerned that their star man hasn’t signed a new contract yet, but it may not be all doom and gloom.
There is just over a month left of the transfer window and still no one knows whether Alexis Sanchez will sign a new contract at Arsenal.
Rumours have been circulating for months that the Chilean doesn’t want to sign a new contract, and doesn’t want to see out the last year remaining on his current contract which has left Arsene Wenger in a difficult position.
Now this could all be purely speculation and Sanchez could put pen to paper on a new deal soon in order put all the chatter to bed, but if he doesn’t, Arsenal will need a replacement for him and our landlord knows exactly who that should be.
A few weeks ago, Arsenal became linked with Monaco duo, Kylian Mbappe and Thomas Lemar. Wenger has since cooled his interest on the former but remains interested in Lemar, with Frenchman himself trying to force through the move too.
Whilst he isn’t as good as Alexis Sanchez, not many players are, he’ll have plenty of time to grow at Arsenal and could one day be one of the best wingers in the world.
Our landlord doesn’t think it is a step too far to suggest this so early on in his career, the £20.4m-rated man has already had a wildly successful season in France, reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League and winning the league title.
A different style of player in way to Sanchez, Lemar can still be a fantastic addition to an already growing front line.
