If the Arsenal transfer rumours are true and both of our big stars Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are determined to leave the club when their current contracts run out at the end of this season, or even before if the club decides to cash in when the January transfer window comes around, then you have to ask yourself why.
With reports claiming that the Arsenal board are ready and willing to give the pair a massive hike in wages, it does not appear to be a financial decision, so the generally held theory is that they want trophy success and they do not see remaining at Arsenal as being the way to get it.
If that is true then it must reflect on our manager Arsene Wenger. After all, many of us fans do not think the Frenchman will lead us to the Premier League title any time soon and his timid transfer action this summer only made it more unlikely.
So would a change at the top make a difference to the thinking of Ozil and Alexis I wonder? With some sources reporting that Carlo Ancelotti could be in line to take over at Arsenal after being let go by the German champions Bayern Munich, it would be interesting to see whether he could persuade the two Arsenal stars to stay. What do you think Gooners?
