Koscielny will miss Saturday’s FA Cup final against Chelsea 0

Posted on May 21, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny will miss Saturday’s FA Cup final against Chelsea after being sent off 14 minutes into Sunday’s 3-1 win over Everton. The French international was given a straight red card for a dangerous tackle on Enner Valencia, meaning manager Arsene Wenger will have a selection headache for the forthcoming clash at Wembley.

Koscielny’s absence will be a big disappointment for Wenger as he was already an injury doubt ahead of the Everton clash. The Arsenal boss was keen to give his centre-back game time to ready him for an intense cup final to come, but now the Londoners will have a makeshift backline to take to Wembley against the Premier League champions.

Premier League heavyweights Arsenal have been linked with a want-away Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, who is believed to be looking for a way out of the Santiago Bernabeu side.

The Gunners have been linked with Morata before, when he was still with Serie A champions Juventus, and Arsene Wenger is prepared to rekindle interest for the 24-year-old.

The Spanish striker was tipped for a Premier League move but still ended up being sold back to his parent club Real Madrid, who had a buy-back clause in their agreement with Juventus.

So, Arsenal are in the final of the FA Cup and will take on Chelsea. The Gunners making it to the final has the potential to raise a big question. If Arsene Wenger’s side somehow won the trophy and managed a top four finish would this be a successful season for Arsenal?

Arsenal, of course, would still have to beat Chelsea in the final at Wembley. It would also mean the Gunners closing a gap of seven points on fourth-place Manchester City or a nine-point gap on third-place Liverpool.

According to bookmakers William Hill via the Daily Mirror, they have received massive bets on the possibility of Chelsea captain John Terry joining Arsenal this summer. The bets have all supposedly come from the Reading area, but the bookmakers do not really consider the move a realistic one.

However, it begs the question is it really complete out of the realms of reality that Terry could join the Gunners in the summer?

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’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.

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.

The North London club appear to be coming to terms with Alexis Sanchez leaving the club at the end of the season as there are currently no indications that the Chilean superstar is prepared to commit himself to a new contract at Arsenal.

Following months of negotiations, the contract talks have reached an impasse and it is now believed that the two parties will not be returning to the table to discuss Sanchez’s contract situation until the end of the season.

Alexis Sanchez has reportedly asked for weekly wages around £300,000, which would be more than double to his current wages standing at £130,000 a week.
