In a rumour that just will not go away, apparently Juventus are still waiting to make a move on Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez, with the Old Lady monitoring the player’s happiness in North London.
There has been some concern surrounding Alexis Sanchez’s future at Arsenal, with reports earlier on this summer suggesting that he was unhappy with the club’s level of ambition. Sanchez coming from barcelona, was obviously used to being the favourites to win basically every competition they played in and he has come to Arsenal and experienced a different level of competitiveness. Although those rumours of unrest seem to have died down a tad whilst he’s been away with his National team for the Copa America, it doesn’t mean that the rumours are completely put to bed.
Arsenal are still waiting to see commitment from Sanchez in the form of the Chilean international signing a new contract at the club. Last season was only Sanchez’s second year at Arsenal, but the Gunners will be keen to tie him down to a new 5 year deal on a new bumper wage package, to ensure that he won’t be leaving anytime soon.
In all honesty you cannot blame Alexis for considering his future at Arsenal, the guy is hungry for success and plays with passion and commitment every game. I’m sure all Alexis wants to see is a little more evidence of the club’s ambition, especially in the form of big name signings.
According to today’s Daily Star, Juventus have been monitoring his situation for a while and since they have just lost Álvaro Morata to Real Madrid, the Old Lady will now be on the lookout for a new front man. There don’t seem to be any real developments yet however. One key advantage Arsenal may have if the Serie A winners do come calling, is that Alexis has already plyed his trade in Italy earlier in his career, so to return to a league where he has already played, may not be in the player’s biggest interests.
