The forward had been tipped to rejoin his former-Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, but this move never came about, with the player instead signing for Manchester United instead.

Arsenal have not been known for their character and team spirit in recent years. In fact, there seems to have been tension in the Gunners dressing room in recent years. The doubts over the futures of star player Alexis Sanchez must have had an effect.

An end to the Sanchez saga a relief

As good a player as Alexis Sanchez is, his presence at the club may have harmed team spirit in recent months. It seemed obviously he wanted to leave the club and his exit seems to have lifted a cloud over the club and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil is reportedly a transfer target of Manchester United as Jose Mourinho’s side continues to test their Premier League rival’s resolve over their best players. Alexis Sanchez sealed his move earlier in the week, and his former-teammate in Ozil could follow him to Old Trafford.

The biggest saga of the January transfer window finally ended this week as Alexis Sanchez sealed his switch to Manchester United. Many had suspected he might join up with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City instead, but this move did not ever materialise, and he will instead be wearing the red of Manchester United from this point onwards.

Kevin Campbell has claimed that Arsenal have created a ‘conundrum’ with Henrikh Mkhitaryan incoming. The player is very similar to Mesut Ozil, and with the Gunners looking weak defensively this season, yet another attacking player may see their shaky backline put under even more pressure by Premier League and European opposition.

Alexis Sanchez is edging ever closer to a move to Manchester United as the biggest saga of the window draws to a close. While many assumed it would be Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City that would snare the Chilean, it has instead been Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United that are on the verge of signing the forward.

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis is in Germany in an effort to sign Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gunners have been long-term admirers of the striker and speculation in the media suggests that BVB may be willing to sell for around 60m Euros this month. The Gabon international has endured a number of disciplinarian problems of late at the German club, as it is believed he wishes to make the move to north London. It seems the players wish to leave may persuade Dortmund to sell.

Aubameyang is a prolific scorer

Win over Palace will not paper over the cracks 0

Posted on January 21, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal’s 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday was certainly positive, especially on the back of Alexis Sanchez’s imminent departure from the club. Mesut Ozil, Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi all seemed more influential for the Gunners.

However, the win should not be used to paper over the cracks at the club or in the team. Palace headed to north London without a number of their key defensive players, including first-choice centre-back partnership of Scott Dann and Mamadou Sakho.

Team seemed to play better without Sanchez

Arsenal target Malcom has admitted that playing in England is ‘a dream’, with both the Gunners and Tottenham circling as the player’s future is still very much up in the air with the pace of the transfer window going up a notch.

Arsenal seem to be on the verge of losing Alexis Sanchez as the Chilean nears a move to Manchester United. It seemed as though the forward would be making a switch to Manchester, but to be with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. However, this proposed move never came to fruition and it seems likely that the Chilean will be playing in the red of United in the coming weeks.
