Ever since Arsenal completed and then officially announced the transfer of Alexandre Lacazette from the French Ligue 1 club Lyon this week, there have been an ever growing number of Arsenal transfer rumours about our Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez, with most of them saying that he is definitely going to leave the Gunners this summer.
This is not the only transfer issue that Arsene Wenger is having to deal with, though, as the boss also has to get some more players into the club, especially if Alexis really is going to be sold. There are reports linking us with Thomas Lemar of Monaco and Riyad Mahrez of Leicester City and I think either would be a good addition to the squad, but what should be Wenger’s priority right now?
Is it more important to get the new blood signed sealed and delivered before sorting out the Sanchez scenario, or is it more important for the Frenchman to focus on the contract rebel and either force him to stay, make sure he does not sign for a Premier League rival or simply get the best price we can for him and move on?
For me I think Wenger should make sure he has got his own transfer house in order as soon as possible and whether that be Lemar or Mahrez and any other positions he wants to fill then the sooner the better so Arsenal are as ready for the new season as possible.
If Alexis is going to Man City as many think then it might be a good idea to hold up the deal as long as possible don’t you think?
