It could be an interesting few months for Arsenal and maybe even more so for our Chile international Alexis Sanchez. The striker is said to be not too pleased with the fact that he did not get the transfer away from Arsenal that he wanted, especially if the move to Man City was as close to being done on transfer deadline day as some Arsenal transfer rumours have suggested.
The next chance that the Chilean will have to get the move he wants is the winter transfer window in January but with him being available on a free transfer just a few months later, the chances of him going in january are greatly reduced.
So if Sanchez really is desperate to join Man City then he needs to show Pep Guardiola just how good he is over the coming weeks and months and that could be good for Arsenal. It is a bit of a strange one, to be honest, because if Alexis plays as well as we know he can it may just help to inspire Arsenal and see us challenge for the Premier League title and if that is the case I cannot see Arsene Wenger selling.
If we do not look like challenging for the EPL trophy by that time but Man City are, it could mean that Guardiola tries his best to get our forward and then it all depends on finance, where the Gunners stand in the league table, who we might be able to sign to replace him and various other factors.
For now though, Wenger must convince Alexis Sanchez that the best thing he can do is to play out of his skin for Arsenal. Let’s hope it works…
