Ex Arsenal star worried about Alexis!
The Alexis Sanchez saga is a growing concern which could end up being a big issue if it turns out to be true.
Alexis was rumoured to be unhappy at the club at the end of the season, disappointed that the Gunners were unable to challenge for the Premier League yet again. He was therefore supposedly considering his future at Arsenal and although he has shown some form of commitment to the club by becoming Arsenal’s number seven, it is still nothing substantial.
Arsenal fans need to be assured that there is nothing to worry about regarding Alexis Sanchez and although there doesn’t seem to be any signs of the Chile international actually leaving the club any time soon, a lack of a rumoured contract extension does concern some.
Some famous names have got involved in speaking about the situation and former Gunner, Ray Parlour, has had his say to TalkSport. Parlour said: ‘I was a little bit worried about him come the end of the season.
“Will he want to move on and go somewhere different? He’s top quality and you want to keep those sort of players if you’re going to be looking at the title next season.’
What Parlour says is completely correct in terms of his importance to the club. Losing Sanchez would take us a step back in thinking that we could once again become a club that lacks ambition and is willing to sell it’s biggest names.
That period was supposed to be over and although recent years have been promising for Arsenal in terms of incomers, fans need to remain assured that we won’t be losing any of our biggest players this summer, especially if we are thinking of being ambitious next season!
Are we worried?
