Arsenal's Stance on Sanchez

The transfer market this season has definitely had its fair share of surprises with a number of top players already sold for astronomical fees and a few more being linked away from their current clubs of which a lucid example is that of Alexis Sanchez and Arsenal
With the return of Alexis Sanchez to training and Wenger’s constant reiteration of his desire to keep the Chilean at least for the foreseeable future regardless of several rumours being made about offers from other clubs particularly Man city, the question now is: Is keeping Sanchez really a good deal? To answer that question we may have to consider two factors. One of which is his off-field value (monetary). Valued at over £50 million, withholding such a valuable asset as Sanchez may be considered a business blunder especially if he fails to sign a new contract at arsenal at the end of the season and is allowed to go on a free transfer—which is likely. If sold now and of course the proceeds channelled towards needed reinforcements, the financial risk will appear less. Another factor that is being considered by Arsenal—and probably the most important—is his on-field value. Unarguably Arsenal’s best on-field player last season, Sanchez had the highest goal and assist tally. The Chilean provided a total of 24 goals and 10 assists in the premier league alone, making him the team’s best bet going forward. He also showed a work rate that was second to none in the team. His statistics speaks volume of him in general and that is obviously why Arsenal are willing to do almost anything to keep him, even going as far as making a financial risk that’s well over £50 million by deciding to keep him. The reality is, even if Arsenal were to sell him off, there is a very slim chance that they will be able to get a like-for-like replacement that will produce the same level of creativity and offensive threat as Sanchez does for the team.
Since Sanchez isn’t currently forcing his way out of the club, keeping him for another year looks like quite the deal especially when we consider the fact that one of his potential destinations is that of a rival team. Arsenal could easily become the laughing stock in transfer dealings again if they succumb to the current pressure of Sanchez’s contract situation. That is probably one of the reasons why the club is holding out for a free transfer next season at worst.

If (and that’s a big if) Wenger could, however, manage to get him tied to a contract at the end/before the turn of the season, it would easily be one of Arsenal’s best dealings in recent times. Not just because they were able to keep their best player but also because it shows that the club has a level of control in the transfer market as a top team should—something desirous of its fans.

Arsene Wenger Addresses Sanchez and Ozil Contract Issue

Arsene Wenger Addresses Sanchez and Ozil Contract Issue

Arsenal Newspaper feeds you with Arsenal news from top football news sites like Arsenal.com, ESPN, SkySports, Daily Mail, and Metro. Injury News, Transfer News, Lineups can be found here.

Arsene Wenger seems not to be moved by the massive drama being staged in the media over uncertainties surrounding the future of two of his star players.

Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez have for some time been the centre of attraction as a result of their continuous silence over contract matters.

It is believed that the duo aren't happy with the low success rate at the club and as a result want to join a team which has got more hunger for laurels.

All these to Wenger are just mere hoax as he is confident that they want to remain at the club and help them out of hardship.

Responding to the question on whether it will be a difficult task to tie down Alexis and Mesut to new deals if the club fails to make top four, the Frenchman said:

"No, because they are part of the results as well. Like I am. Overall, I think first of all they are under contract and secondly they behave like they want to be in the Champions League and like they want to be at the club. They don’t behave like players who are disinterested in the future of the club."

Arsenal currently sit if fifth spot with just one game to go. They will be hoping to win while praying for Liverpool to either draw or lose against Middlesbrough.

Arsenal To Announce Signing Of “New Alexis Sanchez”

Arsenal To Announce Signing Of “New Alexis Sanchez”

Arsenal Newspaper feeds you with Arsenal news from top football news sites like Arsenal.com, ESPN, SkySports, Daily Mail, and Metro. Injury News, Transfer News, Lineups can be found here.

In a news that one can claim to be an indication of Arsenal attacker Alexis Sanchez staying with Arsenal beyond this season, Daily mail are reporting that Arsenal are set to announce the signing of high rated Chilean youngster Marcelo Allende who recently completed a successful trial with the club.

It was reported that Marcelo Allende who captained Chile at the last FIFA under 17 world cup is being encouraged by Alexis Sanchez to sign for Arsenal and that the more senior Chilean is ready to mentor him during his stay at Arsenal. Sanchez himself has only 18 months left on his contract and there have been reports he could be leaving Arsenal at the end of the current season with Chelsea said to be the Chilean’s number one choice should he decide to leave Arsenal.

Although the big sports betting sites are already taking bets on Sanchez leaving Arsenal at the end of this season but if Daily Mail is right, it could well mean Sanchez himself is certain of reaching an agreement with Arsenal on a new deal or is ready to see through his current deal. If that is the case, many Arsenal fans will certainly be happy as Sanchez is simply one of our best, if not the very best, players. Losing him at the moment won’t be good for the club as it will be difficult to replace him and there is no guarantee that the club will reinvest whatever cash is raised from his sale.

Marcelo Allende turns 18 today and eligible to sign a professional contract finally which means Arsenal can now go ahead and complete the deal with the young star. It is believed that Wenger rates the forward and is ready to notch him into a world class forward. The signing of Marcelo Allende could also be an indication that Wenger is ready to remain at Arsenal beyond this summer.

The Frenchman who has been at Arsenal since October 1996, almost 21 years ago, is yet to sign a new contract with Arsenal despite reports that the board has offered him a new two years contract with a salary increment of 20%. Wenger's contract ends at the end of the current season.

However if Daily mail are not lying, then it could be that Marcelo Allende has decided to sign after getting reassurance from Wenger that he, Wenger, is going to remain at Arsenal beyond this season. Everything is pointing to the fact that Wenger will remain at Arsenal. The reported recent signing of SeadKolasinac on a free transfer from Schalke 04 of Germany is also another indication that Wenger is set to remain at Arsenal beyond this season.

It appears that Wenger and the club are only waiting for some more positive results before announcing the Frenchman has signed a new deal.

Something unusual happened prior to Chelsea's game with Everton on Sunday afternoon. It was an error from the official Twitter handle of the Blues.

The lineup for the league leaders was unveiled about an hour to the game and the name of Petr Cech surfaced despite the fact that he no longer plies his trade with the Fulham-based club.

This is an indication that the media guy at Chelsea is really missing the presence of the veteran Czech goalkeeper.

Cech staged an impressive display in the North-London derby. Arsenal would have lost with a greater margin if not for his outstanding performance.

Fierce criticism from fans seems to have become an integral part of Mesut Ozil's career so far this season.

According to the BBC, Arsenal could soon announce the transfer of a Chilean international who has had two trials at the club.

The midfielder who currently plays for Deportes Santa Cruz in his home country is a versatile player who is able to play on either flanks and also behind the striker just like Alexis Sanchez.

The football academy of Cobreola which has groomed many of Chile's top stars was where Marcelo Allende began his career.

Cobreola sold him at a time he was hoping to break into the first team and this came as a result of financial constraints.

The Gunners are now set to make him their first signing of the coming transfer window after impressing on trail at London Colney.

Next up after our 3-0 win over West Ham United is Crystal Palace and as it usually is prior to every fixture, the boss has revealed the latest injury news.

At his press conference on friday, Arsene Wenger disclosed the current state of his squad with his focus being on Petr Cech, David Ospina and Laurent Koscielny.

He began by making it known that there was no injury recorded in our last game. What this means is that everyone who featured on the night will be available for selection.

Our first and second choice goalkeepers both got injured at close range. Cech's was first and when it was time for Ospina to occupy that slot like a boss, some forces worked against him and Martinez stepped in.

Martinez will continue between the sticks on Monday night as his seniors are still nursing fitness problems. That guy will be so happy right now. Lol.

Koscielny hasn't recovered fully. He will be out of the Crystal Palace trip also but be rest assured that the Frenchman won't be out for so long. Please do not hold me responsible if he doesn't show up soon because I am giving you Wenger's update. Hehehe!

Now that you have found out the latest Arsenal injury news, let me go and eat my beans and go to bed. I'll see you some other time.

Arsenal Fan Compares Arsene Wenger to Robert Mugabe

Arsenal Fan Compares Arsene Wenger to Robert Mugabe

Arsenal Newspaper feeds you with Arsenal news from top football news sites like Arsenal.com, ESPN, SkySports, Daily Mail, and Metro. Injury News, Transfer News, Lineups can be found here.

An Arsenal fan who claims to have lived in Zimbabwe has compared Arsene Wenger's reign at the club to that of the African dictator Robert Mugabe.

Fans have been calling for the exit of the Frenchman from the club but it looks as if he has all it takes to remain there even if it's against the wish of many.

The same is the case with Mugabe who has ruled Zimbabwe for close to 40 years and has no plans to step down anytime soon.

Speaking in an interview, the disgruntled fan stated that Wenger is on the verge of ruining Arsenal the same way Mugabe has ruined his own country.

The fan said: “I used to live in Zimbabwe and I’ve watched Robert Mugabe ruin the country, and Wenger is doing the same. He’s the Mugabe of Arsenal.”

Mugabe is already 93 years of age and the fact that he has ruled for so long makes many want him off that post but he seems not to be done yet. Even his wife said he could contest elections as a corpse.

Wenger on the other hand has been Arsenal manager for 20 years but it isn't yet clear if he will be leaving anytime soon despite the team's lack of success in many years.

Arsene Wenger has finally been sacked from Arsenal after his 20-year reign at the North-London club.

The decision to relieve him of his duties was made by Arsenal board members during a behind-closed-door-meeting which was held on Friday afternoon.

What this means is that Wenger's assistant Steve Bould will now take over till the end of the season, starting from Sunday's game against Manchester City.

A new manager will be employed at the end of the season but at the moment, we do not know who that will be .
