Unhappy Alexis has NOT handed Arsenal a transfer request – but will leave anyway..

There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth on social media when it was revealed that Arsenal had agreed to sell Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Chelsea, and it was quickly compounded when another rumour spread like wildfire suggesting that Alexis Sanchez had followed that by handing in a transfer request.

It was not helped when Alexis himself posted this picture on Instagram, without any comment whatsoever…


Although Arsenal didn’t make an official announcement or denial (surprise!) it would appear that someone at the club spoke to Sky Sports and asked them to report that the rumours were false.

Arsenal set for biggest EVER transfer splurge after Liverpool disaster?

Not even Arsene Wenger could come up with anything positive to say about his Arsenal team after the Gunners were completely outplayed in a 4-0 humbling by Liverpool at Anfield. Surely even the Frenchman can no longer claim to be happy with the quality and depth of his squad as he tried to say after last weekend’s defeat to Stoke City.

The good news for Wenger and for the Arsenal fans is that there are still a few days of the summer transfer window left and that gives the boss a great chance to sort out his problems before it is too late. Wenger must be aware that the Arsenal fans are furious and frustrated about the lack of transfer action so far and about the way the new season has started.

Wenger hints again that Alexis will leave Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has announced that Alexis Sanchez looks fit and could be ready to play for Arsenal in today’s game at Anfield against Liverpool, but it is entirely possible that this could be the last match in the famous red and white.

This week, Wenger hinted that the Board could over-rule his decision to force Alexis to hold to his contract for the last 12 months, when he said: “Then you have a compromise to find if you can afford to do it because you lose a lot of money and at the end of the day my decision, which is purely sporting, is easy to make. I want him to stay.

Arsenal to win 3-way Premier League battle for Draxler transfer?

The defending of the Arsenal team may be under the microscope of the football media at the minute after the Gunners shipped four goals in two games at the start of the new Premier League season, but as Arsene Wenger pointed out in his comments after the Stoke loss, it was not just the defence who were to blame for that defeat.

With Mesut Ozil not firing on all cylinders and with both Welbeck and Lacazette off colour up front the dominance we had of the ball did not bring us a goal, although many will argue that it would have but for an incorrect offside decision against our new striker.

Ox WANTS Chelsea transfer but will Arsenal take the £35m?

In all honesty the offer that Arsenal have reportedly received for the England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is quite a good one, even in today’s crazy world of transfers where PSG will pay something like £200 million to take Neymar from FC Barcelona.

The Ox may have a lot of talent but so far his playing career has been about flashes of dynamism and impact broken up by injury problems and loss of form, so the £35 million offer for him reported by Metro sounds like a lot when you consider that the 23-year old is now in the final year of his contract with the Gunners.

Arsenal to sell Welbeck to Everton but refuse Giroud transfer?

It is now being reported that Ronald Koeman is not just keen on one of the current Arsenal strike force but two, as the Dutchman is still looking for a player to replace the Belgium international star Romelu Lukaku who completed his transfer from Everton to Old Trafford to play for Manchester United earlier in the summer.

We have been hearing for some time that the Arsenal and France centre forward Olivier Giroud was one of Koeman’s top targets to replace the Belgian and for a while we thought he might get him as Giroud made it clear he did not want another season on the bench and that was before Arsenal signed Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.

How Neymar transfer from Barcelona to PSG can HELP Arsenal

The transfer of the Brazil international star Neymar from FC Barcelona to PSG has quickly become the most talked about and sensational transfer of a summer of big signings and Arsene Wenger has already had his say about the deal and how it shows the crazy nature of the modern game, but maybe he should be pleased because I think it could turn out to be a big help to Arsenal for a number of reasons.

Arsenal CAN sign Lemar!! As long as Monaco get Alexis Sanchez

To be perfectly honest I do not think this would be the worst of outcomes for Arsenal in the ongoing transfer sage of our Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez, because seeing him sign for the French club AS Monaco would mean that he was not joining one of the rival Premier League clubs like Chelsea or Man City that are keen on him.

He would not even be strengthening a club with realistic Champions League trophy hopes like PSG, so as options go Monaco is not a bad one for Arsenal. The latest news reported by Metro is that the French Ligue 1 champions want us to include Alexis Sanchez in any deal to bring their young French winger Thomas Lemar the other way.

Will Arsenal have to sell after striker hands in transfer request?

Handing in a formal transfer request is usually the last act of a player desperate to move away from their current club and that is just what Arsenal have been hit with from the wantaway striker Lucas Perez, who the Gunners only signed a year ago for £17 million.

Arsene Wenger has already admitted that he might have to sell the Spaniard because of the number of players competing for the Arsenal forward positions, but the Frenchman does not want to make too much of a loss and was ho9lding out for something like £13 million according to a Metro report.

Alexis returns with transfer request to force Arsenal exit?

The good news for Arsenal fans is that the main man Alexis Sanchez has actually touched down in London once again after his return to training after an extended summer break because of his and Chile’s appearance in the final of the Confederates Cup was delayed due to a bout of illness.

But just as that illness has raised questions about the striker’s desire to quit the club he signed for from La Liga’s Barcelona a few years ago, there are rumours circulating that Alexis has returned to England with the intention of forcing Arsenal and Arsene Wenger to sell him by handing in a transfer request, according to a report by Metro.
