The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that Alexis Sanchez will stay with the club this season…
With his contract set to expire next summer, his future has been uncertain for a while now, but most fans are focusing primarily on the present.
It’s going to be a tough season for the Gunners, and with a game against West Brom on the horizon, fans have been discussing whether the Chilean deserves to start the game. He has, of course, not been a regular starter this season so far.
Despite the uncertainty in the Transfer Tavern, it doesn’t look like Arsenal fans, in general, are divided – with a whopping 79% of fans in favour of starting Sanchez on Monday evening after a recent poll by our landlord.
This is somewhat of a surprise, as not only has Sanchez struggled this season, but many fans soured on him over the summer after the Chilean refused to commit himself to the club.
It can be explained, though. Sanchez has been poor this season, yes, but he’s also been building up his fitness, and this takes time. He’s clearly more ready now than ever, and that will have a big impact on his form. The injury to Danny Welbeck also likely played a part, with the Gunners now short in attacking depth.
Wenger will have the final decision, of course, but the fans have had their say.
