Wenger To Bid €25m For Attacker Who’s Contributed 20 Goals + 15 Assists This Season
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to go to war over the €25m signing of Alexis Sanchez after being tipped off the Barcelona attacker will be sold this summer
As we approach the opening of the summer window clubs will be intensifying their efforts in the transfer market so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip. Today, Gooner Mac brings us news of Arsenal’s interest in Alexis Sanchez.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to go to war over the €25m signing of Alexis Sanchez after being tipped off the Barcelona attacker will be sold this summer, according to reports.
Sanchez has enjoyed his best season in a Barca shirt since making the move from Udinese in 2012, scoring 20 goals and providing 15 assists in his 53 appearances so far this campaign.
However, despite these impressive figures, it doesn’t seem like the Chilean international has done enough to convince the clubs bosses that he should be part of their new-look set-up next season, with the Catalans set to undergo a summer overhaul after a relatively disappointing season by their very high standards.
Manager Tata Martino is expected to leave at the end of the season, even if they manage to beat Atletico Madrid to land the La Liga title this Sunday, and the Spanish giants are also likely to be active in the transfer market which could see a number of players leave this summer.
The Mirror claim that Sanchez will be sacrificed as part of the shake-up and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is now ready to start the bidding at €25m (£20m) after being tipped off about the attackers availability.
The newspaper suggests that Sanchez knows his days at the Nou Camp are numbered and would be open to the idea of moving to the Premier League, but it looks like we’ll have to fend off some stiff competition from Juventus with the Italian champions also understood to be keen on luring him back to Serie A.
I’d love to see the 25-year-old come to the Emirates as he would be an excellent addition to our squad and would add some much-needed pace to our attack. Without Theo Walcott, we’ve look pedestrian at times this season so Sanchez would certainly offer us something different in the final third.
As his stats show, he would also bring a real goal threat to the team and he’s capable of playing on either wing as well as through the middle, so would be a versatile member of the squad.
If we are going to make a move I hope we try and do it quickly because interest in his signature is only going to increase throughout the summer, but I’d be delighted if we could make him our first signing of the summer.
