I think that Arsenal and Arsene Wenger are going to have a tough task persuading our star striker to stay at Arsenal and sign a new contract, and that is what is going to have to happen because despite the strong words about not letting him go I really cannot see our club turning down something like £50 million and then losing the player in just a year from now for nothing.
I also think that the fight must be fought on two fronts, with his agent and representatives sure to want a significant financial upgrade on the current deal. Even if Arsenal do agree to match the sort of salary that Alexis could pick up at clubs like Man City and Chelsea, I still believe that he needs to believe that staying at Arsenal is not throwing away the chance of an EPL title winners medal.
So that is why I think it is vital for Wenger to make at least one big name signing in the very near future and with Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez giving the boss the green light and the hurry up I think he would be a great start towards persuading the Chilean that we do mean business. What do you think gooners?
