It is not the much talked about transfer of the Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez to one of our Premier League rivals that we are talking about, or not this time at least although that could still be on the cards at some point during the summer transfer window.
This time it is another of Arsenal’s attacking stars that a Metro report suggests is set to be sold to one of our direct rivals. There were rumours in the football press last week about our England international midfield star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain being fed up and frustrated about the lack of contact over a new contract with the club and the latest news is that Arsene Wenger is ready to okay a £ 25 million move to Liverpool.
I really hope this is all pie in the sky because I and many other Arsenal fans would be fuming if the manager let such a talented player go, especially after a season in which the Ox finally started to realise some of the potential we have been waiting years to see.
However, the report does also claim that this sale would be done in order to allow Arsenal to keep hold of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil by raising their wages substantially. If that was true would it be okay with you Gooners?
