Not every player that comes to England to play in the Premier League has to struggle to adapt to the different style of football played over here, but the way that Arsenal´s top signing of last summer settled straight in was still quite a surprise.
I wonder how much contact Alexis Sanchez still has with his former team mates at Barcelona. Hopefully quite a bit, with his fellow forward Pedro Rodriguez at least, because a Metro report claims that the Spain international is one of the players on the transfer wish list of Arsene Wenger this summer.
The report also claims that the Gunners have already made an offer to the Catalan club for the 27-year old who is about to enter the final year of his current contract. The news from Spain is that Pedro is ready to move on due to lack of playing opportunities since Luis Suarez joined Messi and Neymar at the Nou Camp and with young forwards coming through the academy system there, Barca are ready to cash in now rather than lose him for nothing.
He may not be the same sort of all action player as Alexis but while they were both in the same team their goal tallies were very similar. with the Arsenal star getting just five more in the three seasons they played together. But with offers apparently on the table from Man United and Inter Milan as well, we could do with the Chilean putting in a good word for us.
