The seeming impasse in the transfer of Alexis Sanchez is becoming an embarrassment for Arsenal.
The clubs have agreed on valuation, said to be worth £35m and personal terms with Alexis Sanchez, reported to be £350 per week.
Somehow, Arsenal got wound up with a player plus cash deal and everything went downhill from that point.
Manchester United wants to get rid of the player they considered as being surplus in Henrikh Mkhitaryan and will happily throw him under the bus to get a player they desperately need to sort their goal scoring problems out. A premiership proven player that will need NO initiation period, a player that will get the ball rolling in Alexis Sanchez. Providing for the length of contract of both players- Alexis Sanchez 6 months and Mkhitaryan 2 years, the concept of demand and supply dictate that Arsenal who currently holds Sanchez registration holds the ace, right? ok, it started that way but the picture being painted, particularly since it became clear that a certain Mino Raiola is involved is that Arsenal is the one waiting on Mkhitaryan to decide, thereby holding up all the transfer business Arsenal has got to make in the window. Hence, Arsenal is being held, hostage.
Arsenal was not looking to buy Mkhitaryan prior to this particular window, if Ozil is going to sign a new contract as it is widely reported and anticipated, Arsenal needs to cut Mino Raiola and Mkhitaryan’s bluff and call the swap.
Sell Sanchez on cash only basis, based on the valuation of £35m.
Manchester United need Sanchez, Arsenal needs Sanchez, alright Sanchez would rather be in any club except Arsenal but he is still contractually tied to Arsenal. Man U does not want Mkhitaryan and Arsenal do not necessarily need him as Ozil is still very much an Arsenal player.
Since the rest of the business Arsenal intend to do relies on this particular deal, sale or swap, Arsenal needs to make the decision to avoid last minute rush to close other deals.
THEO WALCOTT PASSES MEDICAL:
Arsenal ace close in on his transfer from Arsenal to Everton.
As he was pictured yesterday at Everton training ground for and reports this morning is that he has passed his medicals and has agreed to a personal term.
Walcott is one of the only few players to have scored over 100 goals for Arsenal since he was signed as a teenager from Southampton in 2006.
Ian Wright laid into Wenger for failure to improve Theo Walcott’s game and compared him to Sterlin, as the improvement in Sterlin’s game under Guardiola within a short period is evidence of manager’s influence.
“Theo is the same player as when he joined, he’s just older. He’s not learnt a particular trait, he’s just blasting on his pace. He’s somebody who could’ve been taught how to play the central striking role. Look at Raheem Sterling – and how much he has changed for having a coach that has taught him to play that position. I don’t think that Theo has had that schooling” Ian Wight
Is Jens Lehmann German Trip Related to Aubameyang’s Arsenal Transfer?:
Aubameyang is very keen to leave Borrusia Dortmund, according to multiple reports that claim the player is pleading with his current club to let him leave this winter.
The second top scorer in the Bundesliga this season has had disciplinary issues, the last of which saw him left out of the squad in their last match for failure to attend a team meeting.
Arsenal will find out today, according to Guillem Balague, if Dortmund wants to sell and at what price.
Arsenal has reportedly agreed to terms with the player, but both clubs are yet to decide on a transfer fee.
Olivier Giroud has been mentioned in the equation, thus today’s meeting should clear the air further on what’s happening with the Gabon’s striker.
However, a couple of photographs have been trending that shows Jens Lehmann, the former Arsenal goalkeeper and a member of the coaching crew pictured with a fan and the same fan pictured with Aubameyang. This has increased speculations that talks are indeed ongoing and at a fast pace.
