Arsenal have supposedly slapped a £25 Million asking price on Alexis Sanchez’s head, with Chelsea and Manchester City both linked with an interest.
Antonio Conte this week admitted an interest in the forward, before claiming that he had limited input into his club’s transfer policy, although Sanchez along with his international team-mate Arturo Vidal were of interest to him.
Manchester City have been the most strongly linked, with Pep Guardiola agreeing a fee with our club for his arrival on deadline day back in August, only for Arsenal to backtrack after failing to persuade Thomas Lemar to join in his place.
Arsene Wenger had insisted that none of his players would leave the club this month, much like he said last summer prior to accepting an offer from City on deadline day, but he appears to be coming round to the idea of his exit, possibly down to the player’s struggles this term along with the recent issues with his teammates.
Our club are now claimed to be willing to discuss his departure for in excess of £25 Million, with his agent supposedly urging interested suitors to pursue a deal.
Alexis is believed to be keen on teaming up with former manager Pep Guardiola, who he spent time working with at Barcelona previously, but Chelsea could also prove to be of interest to the forward, who would most likely be offered his desired wage packet at Stamford Bridge.
Would Arsenal fans rather the former Udinese and Barca star to join Chelsea or Man City? Is there any need to keep him at the club beyond January?
