Wright: Alexis’ Arsenal-Chelsea move makes perfect sense

Ian Wright claims that the speculation linking Alexis Sanchez with a move to Chelsea from Arsenal ‘makes sense’.

The former Gunners striker is a regular on the football talk shows, as well as being a regular at the Emirates Stadium, and remains a keen supporter of Arsenal Football Club.

Wrighty has now declared his thoughts on Alexis Sanchez’s possible move to Chelsea, claiming the transfer ‘makes sense’.


Our former star insists that Real Madrid will be going all out to get Eden this summer, and Sanchez would prove to be the ideal replacement should the Belgian get snapped up.

Hazard has been key in helping guide Chelsea to the Premier League title in 2015, and looks likely to have had a huge influence on their campaign this term, where they look highly likely to lift the title for the second time in three years.

Alexis was our main man in keeping us in the title race this season, and he would most certainly thrive in the system currently adopted by the Blues, which gives so much freedom to the attacking players to flourish.

His attitude this term has been atrocious, and most likely has had a detrimental effect on a number of our players, although he seems to have managed to maintain a high playing level despite his frustrations.

We most certainly miss his tantrums on the pitch, but his ability will most definitely need replacing, and there isn’t many players in the world who could realistically have the same impact.

Would Arsenal allow Alexis to join a Premier League rival? Will we simply sell to the highest bidder? Will Real get Hazard this summer?

    I think Hazard to Real Madrid will be a bad move. He’ll turn from main man to playing second fiddle.
    Sanchez will obviously slot well into Chelsea should Hazard move. It’ll be interesting to see the personality clash between him and Conte.

    However, if Sanchez looks like he wouldn’t be signing, I’ll suggest we offer him to Real/Atletico/Bayern/Juve as soon as possible. The last we want is to strengthen a direct rival…

    I’d sell Sanchez and Ozil now.
    They are both 29 this year.
    They cost 77 mill combined.
    They will have cost 50 mill
    combined in salaries by June.
    Once they hit 30 their value will drop significantly.
    They want to go and clubs are ready to pay good coin.
    But I would prefer a new manager with fresh insight
    with more ambition to invest the money rebuilding
    the squad rather than a 67 year old who will be gone in 2 years.
    Unless Wenger is staying beyond 2 years?

    The Height of Madness will be selling to a direct rival
    Sell to the rest of Europe instead (if you must)
    Also, selling isn’t the issue, Replacement is….. And it must be Like-for-like in quality or a step higher
    Otherwise, what’s the gain in a trade?

    Even Ian wright is furious over his dear Arsenal
    How do you treat sanchez this way and still expect him to stay
    Age ain’t on his side and he’s ambitious!

    Selling our best player and one of the few world class players in the PL to a PL rival let alone a London rival is crazy.

    But you can only blame Wenger for this if it happens

    I will probably literally vomit if it happens

    Hahahahaha Chelsea are about to win the league and are looking to strengthen next season. What is Arsenal doing next season? We don’t even know if Le Mediocre is staying or not. There are massive problems at the club and it is toxic from the owner to the board, manager and players. Get ready for some even harder times if Wenger stays Gooners.
