With the Premier League season about to come to an end, the rumour mill is about to go into overdrive and Arsenal transfer rumours are almost certainly set to be among the most numerous and at times ridiculous. At times I think that the general lack of activity from Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal transfer team (is there one?) makes the journos even more desperate and willing to write about anything.
One pesky and persistent rumour doing the rounds at the minute is about the possible departure from Arsenal this summer of Alexis Sanchez. Unless you know the man then we really have no way of knowing the veracity of the story and in my opinion I think he just wants some assurance that Arsenal match his ambition, but it could be true and if it turns out that way, who could Arsenal get to replace him?
Surely there is an outstanding candidate in the shape of the Leicester star Riyad Mahrez. THe new EPL player of the year seems tailor made for Arsenal and the way we play and he might even turn out to be an upgrade on Alexis. Of course it would be better if we had both and that they were playing either side the best centre forward in the world.
Lord Bentner has recently become available hasn’t he?
