Posted on April 18, 2017 by Milos Markovic

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.

Arsenal star forward Alexis Sanchez is Chelsea’s priority summer signing according to the Guardian. The report claims that Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has told the Blues hierarchy which players he hopes to sign in the summer, with the Italian currently in talks over a new contract extension.

Elsewhere, Spanish newspaper Sport claim that German giants Bayern Munich are actually the favourites to nab the Chilean this summer. It is looking increasingly likely the former Barcelona ace will be leaving north London in the near future, as he will have just 12 months left on his Gunners contract in the summer.

According to the Metro, Arsenal are on the trail of highly-rated full-back Layvin Kurzawa and could be set to make a move for the star in the summer.

The Gunners rate the left-back at around £17million and Italian media outlet Sport Mediaset claim the side from north London will make a move to sign Kurzawa whether Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger stays at the club or not.

Highly-rated left-back

Kurzawa is highly rated and is reported to be a summer target identified by Wenger as a summer signing. Spanish international Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs have competed for the left-back position in the last few seasons.

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal are monitoring the situation of PSG attacking midfielder Lucas Moura, with the futures of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in doubt at the north London club.

In fact, the Star even claims that the Gunners have held talks with the French club about the availability of Moura. The club from the French capital are believed to have stated that Brazilian is currently not for sale.

Moura has hit form this season

Moura has taken awhile to find his feet in European football since his £38million move from Sao Paulo in 2012. He has produced flashes of his ability in previous campaigns, but he has failed to find consistency.

He stated his desire to leave in the summer but was denied a move. It seems doubtful he will be in January.

Could Arsenal break their last-16 hoodoo in the Champions League? 0

Posted on December 07, 2016 by David Nugent

The last six seasons have been a very similar story for Arsenal in the Champions League. The Gunners finished second in their group then end up being knocked out of the competition in the last-16 of the competition.

The Gunners 4-1 victory at Basel, coupled with PSG failing to beat Bulgarian side Ludogorets has given Arsenal a perfect chance to put right some of the wrongs of the past. Arsenal won their group and it should give them an easier draw in the knockout stages.

Maybe not such a comfortable draw

Alexis Sanchez found Kieran Gibbs and the full-back’s cross was turned in from close range by Lucas Perez. The home side saw an effort from Janko ruled out for offside before the visitors doubled their lead on 16 minutes.

Arsenal travel to Switzerland to take on Basel on Tuesday night in the Champions League, with the Gunners hoping to somehow top Group A.

The home side have a poor record in the Champions League, having not won any of their last seven games in Europe’s elite competition. They currently sit fourth in the group and must better Ludogorets result against French giants PSG.

Their European form has been in contrast to their domestic form, as with the winter break coming up Basel look to be runaway leaders in the Swiss top-flight. However, they did suffer a 3-1 defeat at Young Boys last time out in their domestic campaign.

Arsenal boss called for fans not to panic after the Gunners 2-2 draw with PSG saw them the French team to move to the top of the group. The game saw the north London side’s third consecutive draw.

Although the Gunners are now 18 games unbeaten in all competition there is something not quite right with the team at the moment.

Wasteful with the ball

Arsenal are renowned for their passing style of football. However, the last few games the Gunners players have been very careless with the ball.
