Alexis Sanchez is looking to make a shocking return to the Premier League to his former club Arsenal. Alexis Sanchez is entering his final year of his contract at Inter Milan. Sanchez had a decent outing in the recent season as he scored 9 goals and 5 assists in 39 appearances. However, 30 of his 39 appearances came from substituting from the bench.
Inter Milan wants to sell the Chilean player in the Summer. They are even looking to terminate the player’s contract which could cause them a fee in the range of 3.25M. Arsenal have been circling around the situation as they look to get him back to the Emirates. Marseille have dropped out of the race as they cannot match Sanchez’s huge 125K/Week wages. Although Arsenal does face competition from the likes of Aston Villa. Steven Gerrard wants Sanchez to bring experience into the club and use his talent in the squad.
The right decision?
Sanchez is not the player he was on his previous outing at Arsenal. Sanchez, 33, has not been able to recreate his previous form at clubs like Barcelona and Arsenal. Moreover, former Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger had spoken about Sanchez before.
“It is the question he has raised with his performances, I believe he has lost confidence. The strength of Alexis Sanchez is to take initiative to dribble, to take people on. They as well these kinds of players who are most vulnerable when they have no confidence any more, because their game is based on confidence and feeling free to take initiative, he has lost that slowly, even with the interruption of the season. Since the start of the season he had a high level of physical energy, but he has lost as well.”
Arsenal needs to think deeply before moving in for Sanchez.
