Could Arsenal sell Alexis with Chelsea keen in January?

Chelsea are claimed to be eyeing a move to sign Alexis Sanchez come January, but would Arsenal really sell?

Our club turned down £60 Million on this summer’s deadline day from Manchester City, but was believed to have agreed that they would have sold him had Thomas Lemar agreed to join the club.

The Chilean remains ever-likely to quit the club by next season regardless, with his contract up come the end of the current campaign, and he will need to be replaced in some shape or form, and surely a transfer fee could help in landing his eventual successor.

The Citizens have previously been claimed to be unwilling to be held to ransom over a fee this winter, knowing he will be available for free in the close-season, but all this talk will be none and void when the offers come rolling in thick and fast.

PSG are believed to be ready to offer him a £10 Million signing on fee to agree to join them for free come the summer, while we are supposedly eyeing a potential swap deal involving Draxler this winter.

Chelsea are the latest name to be thrown into the ring, with their supposed lack of attacking options having led them to consider a January deal, with his eligibility for the Champions League a boost also.

Surely Arsenal would only agree to sell the forward should they manage to find a replacement as was the situation in August, and he may be forced to see out his contract depending on our position within the Premier League and other competitions.

We look almost certain to still be in the hunt for Europa League glory, a feat accomplished by Manchester United last season, and Alexis could well be kept in order to target the competition in order to seal Champions League football for the following year.

Could we be persuaded to sell come January? Would it be better to sell to Chelsea than Man City? Will our campaign decide his future?

    We’ve had quite a few articles of late linking the likes of Alexis, and Ozil with January exits, and it’s baffling! Arsenal refused to sell them both in the summer for around a total of £100 million, so it would make zero sense to then cash in on them for a lot less only six months later, whilst also causing huge disruption to the starting XI, especially with Alexis’s departure. On top of that, it’s very difficult to sign replacements in January. So unless there’s a fantastic cash, plus a player, deal on the table, I cannot see anything happening. Although Kallstrom is still playing, so you never know!

      Imagine ur Stan or Ivan

      70 mill or 4 months extra of heart not in it ozil and Sanchez

      We aren’t competing for anything major so take the damn money .
      Not to buy players of course .
      So are yearly report looks good

      Accountants rejoice arsenal are a business first

      Could not agree more. Besides Sanchez wants to go to City so he will trun down a move to Chelsea and he is the one in control.

  2. Who said Arsene can't do grime?

    With the rise of Nelson, the continued development of Iwobi and Wilshere practically being like a new signing I don’t think Sanchez or Ozil are needed.

    I would say send them to the reserves until Jan and sell them. Time for change is now. No point in continuing to accommodate these players that want to leave when we have superstars in the making waiting to make an immediate impact.

      Sanchez and Ozil have done nothing wrong. They were not offered a timely contract – usually 2 years before not one year before contract expires. They did not see the club showing enough ambition in the transfer market – we ended up with a surplus for god’s sake after finishing 5th.
      They know that going free they can command a very large salary wherever they go and will probably choose teams with more ambition to win something. So overall these guys are doing what anyone with their talent would do.
      If Arsenal was well run, we would never be in the situation where two of our most expensive players are in a situation to leave for nothing.
      100M down the drain.

        This is their job, like anyone else they can decide where they want to work.

        As long as they are full committed for the remainder of their employment with us.

        Would you not leave your job for more money, of course you will.

        Some of you wont even give notice.

      Um, Sanchez is behind almost every single goal…either a key part in the build up, assist, or scoring goals out of nothing/good tram work.

      If we lose Sanchez in january, we lose 4th.

    Don’t sell him to a domestic rival sell him to ‘moneybags’ PSG. We should have sold him in the last window because there was no way he would extend his contract. £60m would have gone a long way to get a quality replacement but too late, we will be lucky to get £20m now.

    I am not too upset when you see some of the quality coming out of the Academy. Reiss Nelson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles in particular who are both ‘real’ Arsenal lads with great potential.

    If I was Wenger, I would have sold Sanchez to PSG for over £60 million and buy a very good and talented player who WANTS to play for the club. With that kind of cash, you can buy exceptional players who might even match Sanchez’s quality
