Uh-oh… Could Alexis push for winter move from Arsenal?

Alexis Sanchez is believed to be a target for Manchester City in January, and having failed to agree terms with Arsenal over a new contract, may be able to force his own exit.

The Chilean is claimed to be a target for the Gunners’ rivals Man City, who are managed by the player’s former boss Pep Guardiola currently.

The Citizens are claimed to be willing to meet his wage demands, with Alexis claimed to be in want of £200,000 a week to extend his current deal.

Arsenal started talks with the forward toward the end of the previous campaign, as well as with fellow superstar Mesut Ozil, but talks were eventually put on the back burner with terms failed to have been agreed.

The pair have less than two years remaining on their current contracts, and should we fail to sign the duo down to new long-term deals, we may be weak in resisting should one push for a move.

The German has been vocal in declaring his happiness in North-London amidst all the speculation, but Alexis has been quite the opposite, not saying much on the subject.

Juventus were strongly linked with his signature in the summer, but nothing prevailed, and we could be set for an anxious winter window also, especially if no contracts are put in place before such a time.

Arsene Wenger has decided to use the City target as a makeshift striker this term, much as he did with Theo Walcott in previous terms, but there is no has been no inclination on whether the player is happy with the switch or not.

Pep has certainly struck the right tune with his new side, keeping a 100% record so far this year, but does he really need Alexis? Will we be able to convince the pair to sign new deals?

    No offence but just idle speculation by the media. Made up b***s***. The transfer window is shut so they need to run some sort of BS story. Watching AS7 kiss his badge on Saturday didn’t smack of “get me out of here, I’m so unhappy”.

  2. Juhislihis McLovin says:

    That tap on the badge after Alexis’ second makes this rumor look silly!

    1. stubill says:

      I wouldn’t take tapping or kissing the badge too seriously, players do it as a matter of course.

      If he doesn’t sign a new contract by Christmas I would take that as sign he doesn’t want to stay, in which case sell him to the highest bidder, I don’t care how good the player is, if he doesn’t want to play for the club he goes.

      If he’s happy at the club and just wants more money, offer the £200k that’s allegedly on offer from City.

      All this being said, it’s more than likely just paper talk with no substance.

    You think it’s speculation huh, wait for it…
    Even Ozil is unhappy at the moment, I got from a very very genuine source. Ozil’s not happy with d team selection. God help us!!!!
    We really need Ozil and if Sanchez can stay too… good for us!!!

      Hahaha ? Was that barbecue or HP sauce? ? ?

    2. Arsenal007 says:

      @Okayblack please STOP with the “reliable source” rubbish.
      I agree that Ozil has not been his best, and his body language has been quite off…but that doesn’t mean you have to speculate with this “reliable source”.
      This is the second time today you’re mentioning it. Enough already.

    Enough of the transfer speculations ? I’ve just about gotten over the belly full of Bull ? from this summer’s shenanigans! ? And to be honest, Man City don’t need Sanchez.

      ? Man!.. I have had problems logging on to this site because of some diverting bugger called ‘Wonderlandad’ what a #@#@er that is and now that I managed to get pass that @@@@ I’m back on to Moderation at JustArsenal.com ?

      And you certainly have a big belly
      And a big butt by the looks of it 🙂

      1. Fatboy Gooney says:

        Hahaha ? Stop blushing mate, ?In reality,There is more chance of you resembling Wendy than there is of me resembling Cartman. ??

  5. Twig says:

    I wouldn’t mind to be honest. So far we get a quality replacement of course.

  6. Twig says:

    Arshavin at his peak > Sanchez at his peak. Take that to the bank.

  7. Arsenal_Girl says:

    If it means he will stay then Give Alexis £200k per week
    Alexis is World Class
    It’s certainly more sensible than giving Theo £140k per week

    1. Fatboy Gooney says:

      And if Sanchez starts playing like Theo did when he got his massive pay rise, you wouldn’t stop moaning about the £200,000 a week!… Would you? ? ?

  8. Skills1000 says:

    Hello Mourinho, Is it easy buying Pogba for 89m pounds, Only to discover that he cost more than the entire Watford team you just lost to?

  9. Aussie Jack says:

    Even Wenger would not sell his best player mid season if he`s serious about chasing the title, but Arsene would have his reasons and justifications so, who knows.?

  10. Aussie Jack says:

    I`d like to feel sorry for Jose, but I don`t feel it in my heart. Where to from here my friend?
