Proof Arsenal’s Alexis HAS already put transfer saga behind him?

Whether or not the Arsenal and Chile international star will be persuaded to stay in north London beyond the final year of his current contract is another matter, and in my opinion it will depend on how well the Gunners can perform over the coming months. What is more important right now is that Arsenal see the striker play at or near to his best.

There is still a doubt about that happening, though, after two0 lacklustre displays at international level following on from his largely anonymous showing against Liverpool at Anfield. People in the football media have suggested that the disappointment of not getting the transfer to Man City is behind this and Arsenal might not be able to get him to perform, while Arsene Wenger has insisted that his player will be focused and committed as we need him to be.

So any sign that the Arsenal boss is right and the negative football experts are wrong is very welcome and the player himself has given us just that, with a p[ost on social media reported by The Mirror in which Alexis seems very happy to be getting back to what he does best and is happy to be doing it with Arsenal after posting a picture with some positive comments alongside it.

Sanchez wrote, “Back home” and “Focus”.

Is this proof that the Chilean has already put the transfer saga of the summer to one side and will give his all for the Gunners once again?

    Arsenal board are not helping matter. How would they allowed someone of Sanchez status, Ozil to wait for this long before ironing out there contract matters.
    A pity that Arsene Wenger legacy is being spoilt by himself, so stubborn and outdated. He should please quit and stop covering the useless board.

    Words don’t matter, what he does on the pitch matters.. the guy wanted out here and his mind was already set somewhere else, it’s not gonna be easy to play with people you already said goodbye to (in your mind)

    But he is a professional, I’m expecting better recovery and hitting that ground running very soon

    The concern with Alexis was that his head had been turned and mentally was on his way, the general feeling among some fans was that he should be kept and would play well to help him negotiated a better deal when he leaves, my fear was that he would simply play at 75% effort that best, not put his body on the line and bide his time until he leaves, I hope I am wrong.

    Let’s hope we see super Alexis Sanchez sooner rather than later.

      True – we can only hope for the best and hope that our plan does not backfire. I sometimes find the criticism unfair. It is true that we should have tied him down earlier but once he is in the final year of his contract it’s a NO win situation for Wenger & Co. If he had sold him, every pundiit and fan will say “Arsenal have no ambition – they sell their best players” . Now that we have kept him they say “bad transfer dealing”. We should just keep our faith and hope that the Sanchez of last season turns up. Our aim of making top 4 depends a lot on him. Up gunners.

    Enough of Alex

    Wenger on sky” we hat to sell” why ???

    And the club is sting financially. Ah now I bet all fans feel better

  5. Ian wrights bruva says:

    O/T Maybe wenger hasn’t completely lost the plot and wasn’t lying to us all through the window.

    Eighteen-year-old France striker Kylian Mbappe, who joined Paris St-Germain on loan from Monaco in the transfer window, says joining Arsenal was a “real option” after meeting Gunners boss Arsene Wenger. (Telegraph).

    Still close isn’t close enough but does show the club had intent in bringing the player in, pity we couldn’t land this one

    1. John0711 says:

      Once the fee runs so we were out of it

  6. John0711 says:

    I’m shocked Arsenal vote for closing the transfer window before the season start LOL

    Can you imagine what the atmosphere would be like in the stadium, if he said nothing when he came back? I think this is the minimum he could get away with. The situation was not helped by Kroenke – and yes I say Kroenke, because Wenger clearly wanted him to stay whatever, yet Kroenke in the background was saying to sell him if a reasonable offer came up, all of which exposed the fissures in the Arsenal hierarchy, and the media to continually shove a wedge in, and chip away, as well as AS making more clandestine trips than he otherwise might’ve made if he knew he definitely wasn’t going anywhere for a year.
