One of the biggest transfer targets for this summer Alexis Sanchez looks set to remain at the Emirates for the forthcoming season, according to reports in England.
He is set to see off his final ten months left at the Emirates before he exits for free next year.
Arsene Wenger insisted that the Chile international would not be allowed to leave the club no matter the amount offered. After back and forth, it seems the player would remain in north London. The Gunners would prefer to lose out financially than sell their prized forward to rivals Manchester City or Chelsea or even to Bayern Munich or Paris St Germain.
PSG’s capture of Neymar ended links to Sanchez and Bayern could not compete in such costly financial deal. Jon Cross of the Mirror reports that Sanchez would stay on as the team fights for the Premier League title this season.
Wenger would also have enough time to plan a top replacement for Sanchez when he leaves next year. If he left this term it would have affected the team’s competitiveness so Wenger opted to lose out financially. Continue reading SANCHEZ TO REMAIN FOR FINAL CONTRACT YEAR →

For the past six seasons Arsenal has repeatedly crashed out of the Champions League round of 16.
The reason is not far from the fact that they kept putting themselves in trouble by failing to top their group. Not this season though as they placed above main rival Paris St. Germain in their group.
Yesterday’s 4-1 thrashing of Basel in the last round of matches coupled with PSG’s surprising capitulation against Ludogerets means the Gunners for once got the answers to their prayers. And somehow just like every other ugly trick fate plays on humans, there is still a lot of biting of nails going on at the Emirates stadium. At least till Monday where all 16 remaining teams will learn their fate as UEFA conducts the draws.
When asked about the mixed feelings brewing at North London, Wenger replied:
“It’s difficult to know. You feel a bit less guilty. If you have a bad draw when you’re first or second. At least we have done our job and let’s see what happens.” Continue reading ARSENAL FACES A TRICKY DRAW →
