Arsenal To Announce Signing Of “New Alexis Sanchez”

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.
