Arsenal Ensures Sanchez Arrival
There is good news for the Arsenals fans. The club has eventually managed to ensure the arrival of Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates Stadium.
Barcelona’s demand as transfer fee for the player who has become a superstar after his showings in the last one year was 32 million Pounds and the Gunners management has agreed to pay them that.
It’s being understood that Sanchez would travel to England soon for the medical after which he would officially become an Arsenal player.
Sanchez might be given the no. 9 jersey to wear in the upcoming season. Earlier, Lukas Podolski used to put on that jersey, but, he is expected to leave Arsenal this summer to return to his motherland Germany.
Sanchez had been wonderful for Barcelona last season firing 19 goals in the top tier. He played in the same way for his national side Chile as well in the World Cup.
The striker’s top class performances made him the transfer target for quite a few English clubs including the mighty Manchester United. But, at the end, Arsenal won the race and secured the services of the player.
There has not been any official announcement of Sanchez’s signing yet though. Probably, tomorrow, some kind of announcement would be made from Arsenal’s side.
Sanchez can be used either as the main striker or as a winger depending on the need. He plays with equal efficiency at both the positions and his pace is absolutely brilliant. Apart from the potential, the Chile international has form on his side too. He is at the peak of his game at this point of time and if nothing goes drastically wrong with his fitness, he can make a big impact for the Gunners come the 2014-15 Season.
