The saga involving Alexis Sanchez is likely to be a long one for Arsenal fans, with the majority of speculation claiming he is keen on an exit this summer.
Manchester City are regularly the team most strongly linked with his capture, and the latest reports even claim that his arrival would open them up to consider the sale of Sergio Aguero.
The Argentine striker is most definitely amongst the best strikers in the world, but for some crazy reason Pep Guardiola sees him as unimportant while he looks to build his own team at the Etihad, and Alexis’ arrival will apparently see them slap a £60Million asking price on Sergio’s head.
If this is a reality, and Sanchez joining would persuade Guardiola to allow Aguero to leave, then why don’t we pursue some sort of swap deal?
Aguero would fill a void that has been missing from our first-team since the departure of Robin Van Persie to Man United back in 2012, although persuading Man City to agree to a swap deal could be problematic.
There is a difference between allowing a top player to leave the club, and actually allowing them to strengthen a league rival, but they may see Alexis as a special player that could improve their side which could be deemed more important to them.
Our club has already claimed that they wouldn’t entertain the thought of selling to a PL team, but with only one year remaining on his contract, the chance to use his departure to bring in Aguero should seriously be considered.
Could Aguero prove to be more important for Arsenal than Alexis has been? Could you imagine a front-three of Ozil, Turan and Aguero?
