The Transfer news everyone is eager to hear about is which team will sign Alexis Sanchez when his contract runs out? It is rumoured Sanchez will not be renewing his contract with the Gunners and Manchester City may be considering taking him on. Arsene Wenger is demanding 30M for Sanchez in January despite the risk he may lose him to a free bid next Summer. Everton has also indicated they will bid for Sanchez, however, Sanchez has stated that his priority is to play the Champions League.

Initially, he was to be snapped up by Manchester City for 60M, but the deal fell apart when Arsenal could not secure the deal for Thomas Lemar worth 92M in the summer.

Arsene Wenger has no transfer targets in mind to replace Sanchez at the end of the season.

Kolansic a ‘good deal’ for Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger reflects well on Saed Kolansic, stating the wing-back proves you can find ‘good deals’ in the modern transfer market. Kolansic was a free transfer and a versatile player who can play any position. He scored against Swansea and assisted for the second goal, which led to a 2-1 win for Arsenal. Alexis Sanchez is another person also showing praise for Kolansic.

Arsene Wenger’s Contract Renewal.

Arsene Wenger’s contract has been renewed for another two years by majority shareholder Stan Kroenke, despite the protests from fans to remove him. There are reasons why it is good to keep him on at the club including his experience at the club as he knows it inside out and has spent a large part of his career with Arsenal.

His priority is to keep valuable players on long-term contracts and seek high-profile players to increase chances of getting in the top 4.

A question arises as to who would replace Arsene Wenger if he was to leave as high-quality coaches are rare, so it makes sense to stick with him. A formation change has allowed more wins to take place and the right signings would have to suit the current formation.

Another point, even though he has been accused of not spending as much as other clubs do on players, Arsenal have funds allowing them to possibly buy new talent from top clubs in Europe.

They are unbeaten in all four of their games played so far in the Europa League and have reached the knockout stage after last nights draw with Crvena Zvezda. The Gunners are also to play Manchester City on the weekend. They are currently fifth in the Premier League table and will play the unbeaten leaders this Sunday.
