Alexis Sanchez giving Arsenal boss a big problem?

I am not talking about the Arsenal transfer rumours that have been doing the rounds of the football media recently, suggesting that the Arsenal and Chile international star Alexis Sanchez has become increasingly frustrated with life as a Gunner and is keen on a move away from Arsenal in the summer transfer window, although if they turn out to be true it would certainly represent a major problem for Arsene Wenger.

Even if they turn out to be just the usual sort of spurious rumours that we will be seeing a lot more of in the coming months, the Arsenal boss still looks set to have a big problem with his star striker, all because of the strange decision to hold another Copa America tournament this summer, even though the last one was held less than a year ago, with Alexis scoring the winning penalty against Argentina to win it for the first time.

The tournament, which is being played in the USA, starts on June 4th so there will be no time for the Arsenal striker to rest when the Premier League season ends at the weekend. If Chile make it to the semi-final stage they will either play in the third place decider on June 25th or the final on June 26th, once again giving our over worked player very little chance to rest and recharge his batteries before training and pre-season starts ahead of the next campaign.

As reported by Metro, Wenger has admitted that last year’s Copa America had a negative effect on Sanchez at the start of this season and he clearly feels that the same is likely to happen again, when asked if he could believe that they had crowbarred another international tournament into the football schedule.

The Frenchman said, โ€˜No. I think last year was the century, so they made a special one [with special rules].

โ€˜It had an impact on him [Alexis] this season I think. Of course Chile won it as well, so after some big achievement like that you always have a bit of decompression. I think he suffered physically this season from that.โ€™

This will be the third summer in a row that Alexis has not been able to have a proper break, so how big a problem will it be for Arsenal? Will Wenger have to think about giving him a rest and bringing him in later in the season?

    OT:

    :::FOOD FOR THOUGHT:::

    Leicester are preparing a bid to sign pescara’s striker LapaduLa who’s scored 24 goals this season….. And since they are so good at scouting excellent players, A crazy thought came up

    How bout we Hijack that?

    would this even be a subject of debate if we had an extra proper, versatile winger Like griezmann?

    No….we got walcott(inconsistent) , campbell(who hardly ever plays) , Ramsey(rubbish), welbeck (currently injured with no idea of injury extent) , Ox (inconsistent but currently injured) , Ozil (Madness) , gnarby (unreliable but on Loan)

    who else????

      Latest rumours.

      Walcott is going to West Ham for a reported ยฃ20 million,
      Apparently he is snubbing Chelsea, as he is excited about playing at the Olympic stadium … No doubt that Walcott will score a hat trick against us, next season ๐Ÿ˜‚

        If it happens, him moving, I hope it works out great for him. I’d look forward to seeing him play every week just as a curiosity. Id like to see him back at that level when scoring and assisting both mid teens. He’d be right to refuse Che, only a quota player so is not going to have full confidence of manager. Wham is a good destination for him, Id say Sou would be another.

    If the rumours are true and he Leaves, then it would be a warm farewell!

    but Trust wenger to do the unthinkable and insert a buy back clause into his contract

    incase he somehow does the Hattrick thing in future *winks*

      I just read that theres Reports coming from Germany saying Xhaka is a done deal and that all fees have been agreed… Wages, agent fees etc and that they are waiting for the transfer window to open, to announce it.

        Hahaha ๐Ÿ˜‚
        One down … and half the squd to go… ๐Ÿ˜‚
        hopefully Ramsey, The Ox, Wheelchair and Giroud will follow Walcott out through the exit door! ๐Ÿ˜‚

        It looks as if Wenger will be busy for ‘REAL’ during the transfer window ๐Ÿ˜‚ even though the protests and verbal abuse wasn’t enough to get him out… it’s definitely made him pull his finger out, transfer’s wise.

          Nah, give Wilshere another chance, just enforce a change in playstyle so that he doesnt get injured as much… by breaking his legs!

    Wasn’t that to be expected? Unlike Wenger who has time clearly he doesn’t! A player in his prime specially one at the level of Sanchez wants to win and not the FA cup or Community shield. But more like the EPL or the Champions league.
    I believe personally that he enjoys life in London & Arsenal the club but wants to see things happening that clearly shows him that the club is about winning & doing what it can towards that goal.
    Speculation about him having issues with Wenger is a reach to me but clearly at the moment he isn’t the happiest player in the squad & the same way we as fan feel let down he probably does too.
    Honestly if Wenger can use the fact that a clear out (at least 5 players) are on the move to his advantage with wages coming off, getting 20-25m from transfers with the condition that he is given around 90-100m to spend we can do something interesting.
    If I’m Sanchez and I see Xhaka, Lukkaku/Morata & Manolas/Marquinhos coming in I re-up. All of them are affordable, looks like great players & clear upgrade on what we have!

    I think Bolasie of crystal palace would be a good signing especially if Walcott leaves

    OFF topic
    If Liverpool win the Europa league they go straight through to the champions league.Now does that mean that the third placed team have to qualify through the play of or are they allowing 5 English teams in it

    Sanchez could be on his way out of the Emirates

    The Chilean is reportedly growing unsettled at Arsenal and could demand an exit at the end of the season.
    Serie A champions Juve are allegedly tracking the movements of Sanchez in the hope of capitalising on his unrest and signing him.
    However, they would face competition for his signature, with Manchester City and Bayern Munich also reportedly interested.

    Arsenal will attempt to sign Lucas Vazquez from Real Madrid,ย according to Fichajes.
