It is looking more and more likely that Alexis Sanchez will be leaving Arsenal this summer, with the news that his Chilean team-mate and friend Arturo Vidal has been tapping him up for Bayern Munich. Speaking to reporters in Chile, Vidal said: “I told him it was the opportunity for him to be in a big team.
“If he wants to compare with the best, he has to go to the best team.”
You can’t say that Vidal is wrong, especially when you think about how the German giants brushed the Gunners aside in the Champions League, so it would seem imperative that Wenger starts bringing in some big names to soften the blow of losing our Duracell Bunny. But it looks like our first signing is nearly completed, as the Sky reporter Kaveh Solhekol has revealed that the young Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru is ready for talks on his personal terms.
Arsenal have agreed £6.8m fee with Belgian club KAS Eupen for Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru.
Personal terms not agreed yet

Kaveh also revealed that there is a host of other English and European clubs interested in the man who scored 25 goals from the wing last season, but it looks like Arsenal is his preferred destination at the moment. He is a winger/striker it seems, so could be a perfect replacement for Alexis in the future if he settles quickly into London life.
I, for one, am looking forward to seeing him in action in pre-season. He could turn into a great bargain one day….
