During the summer transfer window, which ultimately left most Arsenal fans extremely disappointed by the failure of Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board to spend the sort of money that we were led to expect, one positive thing was how staunchly determined the boss was not to sell Alexis Sanchez to a Premier League rival.
There were Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that the deal was going to be done on deadli9ne day but as we know it did not happen and Wenger claimed it was not even close to happening. However, he did not sound half as sure of himself this week in the press conference ahead of the away game at Watford.
As reported by The Mirror, Wenger admitted that any scenario was possible when it came to the Chile international star and his possible transfer away from north London during the next transfer window coming up in January, and that will be a real concern to Gooners everywhere.
The Frenchman said, “In our situation, we have envisaged every solution.
It is possible.”
The manager also spoke about whether to play the star striker this weekend against the Hornets after the disappointment of Chile missing out on next summer’s World Cup and some of the physical treatment he took while on international duty.
But if Arsenal are going to have any hope of persuading Sanchez to stay we need to be competing for the title when January comes and that surely means playing our best players, don’t you think? Do you expect Alexis to complete this whole season as a Gunner?
