With Arsenal fan groups already planning a concerted protest during the Premier League game against Norwich City on Saturday evening, with the board and the major shareholder Stan Kroenke as well as Arsene Wenger being the target, it is pretty clear that we are not happy little Gooners at the minute.
Our current levels of frustration and anger could soon look like nothing, however, if the Arsenal transfer rumours linking our star forward Alexis Sanchez with a summer move to Bayern Munich turn out to be true. The Mirror is reporting that the Bundesliga champions have identified the Chile international star as one of their primary transfer targets.
The paper claims that the German club has yet to formalise their interest in our player but they have already made enquiries about the chances of Arsenal selling. Wenger recently suggested that he is not worried about Alexis and our other main man Mesut Ozil extending their contracts and they do both still have two years left on the current deals, but that also means that neither has yet agreed a new deal and from now on we are entering the stage when you start to worry about the best players .nearing the end of their contract and leaving for nothing or a lot less than they are worth.
Arsenal and our manager must be aware of how important it is to keep Sanchez in north London but if the player hears about this interest from Bayern and decides that he would rather play for a club with a much better chance of major trophy success, would they stand firm and stop him leaving?
