Alexis Sanchez has long been linked with the exit door over the past 18 months, and could well be leaving Arsenal in the current window.
Arsene Wenger has been adamant that the Chilean forward is staying put this summer, despite having let his contract run into it’s final 12 months, with the knowledge that he would likely leave for free next year if he was forced to stay.
A number of top clubs have all been linked with his signature, but many look to have pulled out the chase, although Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Real Madrid are still speculated.
The latest reports however have claimed that he has jetted off to Paris, which Arsene Wenger seemed to play down whilst citing Alexis as having been training with the first-team squad, but the forward has mistakenly posted on Twitter, whilst failing to turn off location settings, alerting the world to his whereabouts.

The fact that he has since removed his post from his Twitter only enhances the likelihood that he is moving clubs, although it remains unclear whether the intention was to hide it from the fans, or from the club themselves.
Arsenal will no doubt have to replace Alexis, although latest reports claim that a deal for Thomas Lemar is now off the cards. Jullan Draxler is yet to be linked with us this summer, but was left out of PSG’s team for last night’s 3-0 win, and may well be able to be included as part of the deal to sign Sanchez, having fallen down the pecking order following the arrival of Neymar.
Would Draxler be a good replacement for Alexis? Why would he delete the post?
