Arsenal star set for a return to former club 0

Posted on April 19, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal’s Spanish striker Lucas Perez is set for a summer return to former club Deportivo La Coruna, according to the Daily Star.

Lucas only arrived at Arsenal last summer from Deportivo for a reported fee of around £17million. The Gunners snatched the striker out of the grasp of Premier League rivals Everton.

However, Lucas has failed to get much of a chance in north London and it seems he could make a loan move back to his former club.

Arsenal recorded a 2-1 win at Middlesbrough on Monday night, with goals from Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil enough to seal the victory. It was by no means a pretty one, but as midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stated after the game they just needed a win.

Arsenal were not at their best and there was a slight nervousness about the Gunners, which is understandable because of their recent away form (four straight defeats).

However, in the end, the Gunners managed to grind out a win, in a fashion that they have struggled to do in the past.

Arsenal star player Alexis Sanchez has little over 12 months in his contract with the North London club and rumours about his future with Gunners are coming in thick and fast on daily basis.

The Chilean superstar is believed to have an offer from Arsenal on the table, but his reluctance to commit after reportedly failing to accept the proposed financial terms has left the door open to a possible departure at the end of the season.

Arsene Wenger only add fuel to fire by taking a firm stance by saying that he would not be disrupting the club’s financial balance by offering any player – Sanchez included – more than possible.

Arsenal ended a run of four straight away defeats in the Premier League by winning 2-1 at Middlesbrough on Monday, courtesy of goals from Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.

Middlesbrough had the first attempt on goal on four minutes, as Grant Leadbitter fired a long-range effort just wide of Petr Cech’s far post. Boro’s Spanish striker Alvaro Negredo was the next one to have a go at goal, firing well wide of Cech’s goal from long-range.

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has been named in the PFA Player of the Year shortlist for his form for the Gunners in 2016/17. The Chilean international has been Arsenal’s most influential player in all competitions, top scoring on all four fronts, but is an outsider to win the award given the outstanding performers at title-chasing Chelsea and Tottenham earning deserved recognition.

Alexis Sanchez set to be offered record contract at Arsenal 0

Posted on April 13, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez is set to be offered a league-record wage of £300,000 to stay at the club according to the London Standard.

This reports contrasts with what Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger recently said about the club not changing their wage structure to keep star players.

Sanchez is of course out of contract next summer and has been linked with a number of lucrative clubs. Chelsea and Manchester City are both reportedly ready to make a move for the Chilean.

Has he made his mind up yet?

Why has Alexis Sanchez been pushed out wide? 1

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez made way for Danny Welbeck to lead the line in Monday’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace, instead operating as a left-winger with license to cut inside on his favoured right foot. While a position the Chilean international has vast experience in, Sanchez has been full of goals since his move to a centre-forward, which raises the question why he’s no longer operating through the middle.

Arsenal players not fit to wear the shirt 0

Arsenal’s abject performance in Monday night’s 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace confirmed something to Gunners fans. It confirmed the fact that a lot of the current squad are not fit to wear the shirt, as the chant goes.

Palace simply wanted it more and played on Arsenal’s weaknesses. However, their approach was obvious from the start. They were going to hit Christian Benteke at every possible opportunity.

This is not the beautiful game at its best, but it’s highly effective, especially against a team that looked scared of the Belgian striker. Palace were deserved winners against an Arsenal side that simply did not look good enough.

Sanchez wants to stay, claims Arsene Wenger 0

Arsenal’s star forward Alexis Sanchez wants to stay at the north London club, according to Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.

At his weekly press conference, Wenger said: “I believe that he wants to stay at the club and it is about doing a deal with his agent,”

“The players have to see if they’re happy and find an agreement. Finances are also involved in that.”

Heavily linked with a summer move

Sanchez has been heavily linked with a summer move away from the Gunners, as his contract has just over a year left on it. Arsenal seem unlikely to let the Chilean run his contract down and allow him to leave next summer.

PSG readying €65 million bid for Sanchez 0

French champions Paris Saint-Germain are preparing a mega-money offer for Arsenal key man Alexis Sanchez, according to reports from the French media outlet Le 10 Sport.

The Chilean is reportedly a €65 million target for Les Parisiens, who are hoping the lucrative amount will be enough to persuade Arsenal to sell their prized possession.

Alexis Sanchez has been linked with Arsenal exit for quite some time now, with various reports of the player’s frustration with lack of results and ambition at the Emirates. The Chilean’s reported fallout with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was another key factor in the 28-year-old wanting to leave at the end of the season.
