With a top-four finish looking highly unlikely and top stars Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil looking set to leave, it seems as though Arsenal have already identified replacements for the duo. According to a report from the Sun, the North London club have identified Schalke’s Max Meyer and Porto’s Yacine Brahimi to fill the void that looks likely to be left by Ozil and Sanchez.
Alexis Sanchez is head-to-head with Arsene Wenger this season, in challenging for the title of ‘who can cause a bigger situation at Arsenal’. For both the player and manager, the dispute surrounds their respective futures, because whilst Arsenal fans want Wenger gone, they also can’t bare to imagine Alexis Sanchez leaving.
There have been a growing number of Arsenal transfer rumours claiming that the Gunners were already preparing for life without Arsene Wenger in charge and that the club had already found the man to replace the Frenchman as manager in the shape of the current boss of Juventus Massimiliano Allegri.
Rumours over Arsene Wenger’s future have been in full swing all season, with the boss dropping hints at the beginning of the campaign that this could well be his last year in charge of Arsenal. Wenger continues to divide the fans between whether we think he should stay or go, yet with less than a few months left to go, the fans still have no real indication as to whether Wenger will be leaving.
News went viral earlier that Alexis Sanchez had practically confirmed that he had no intention of remaining at Arsenal beyond the summer, after a supposed dressing room bust up left him being granted special leave away from the club.
Tuchel, Allegri, or should we be more like Spurs fans? by Konstantin Mitov
Well, well, as usual, it’s February and the mood amongst Arsenal fans is low, after our latest downfall that has been timed perfectly just like any other year. But the hot topic of recent times isn’t what we already know, but whether Arsene will sign a new contract?
Yesterday we heard the rumours that Arsenal had reportedly made a £56 million offer for Torino star striker Andrea Belotti. The Italian has shown some real talent so far this season for the Turin side and as a result has supposedly picked up a bit of interest from a number of top European clubs, including Arsenal.
The winter transfer window is just around the corner, but do Arsenal need to add to their squad? For a number of seasons we have all been crying out for a new centre forward, but with Alexis Sanchez relishing his new role there, and with Olivier Giroud, Lucas Perez and the imminent return of Danny Welbeck in the squad, that is no longer our obvious weakness.
