Arsenal players fear Alexis Sanchez’s exit

 

Arsenal came from three goals down to claim a remarkable 3-3 draw against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Tuesday night and considering the circumstances of the game, the result can be viewed as a positive one for the Gunners.

Despite the comeback though, one Arsenal player who was visibly not pleased was Alexis Sanchez. Upon the final whistle, Sanchez wildly ripped his gloves off and threw them on the ground, and his frustration at Arsenal dropping two points in the title race was apparent.

 

According to reports from the Daily Mirror, Arsenal are ready to offload unhappy defender Mathieu Debuchy during the current January transfer window.

Arsenal signed Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle United during the summer of 2014 and at the time, the French international was seen as the ideal replacement for Bacary Sagna - who had moved on to join rivals Manchester City.

Debuchy did enjoy a strong start to life at the Emirates Stadium but a host of injury problems have meant that the full back has never really managed to earn a consistent run of games for the Gunners since his arrival.

During his absence with injury, young Hector Bellerin has established himself as the undisputed first choice right-back at Arsenal and it has been no surprise to see Debuchy being relegated to the role of backup behind the promising Spaniard.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has stated that English managers do not get enough opportunities in the Premier League these days.

One of the great things about the Premier League is the rich diversity present in the division. Players from well over 100 countries have plied their trade in the English top flight since the Premier League was introduced in 1992 and such an influx has only contributed to increase in the quality of the league.

A lot of foreign managers have also arrived in England over the past few years and presence of high profile names such as Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp among others, serves as evidence to the attracting power of the Premier League.

 

As reported by the Sunday People (via the Daily Star), Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is ready to offload defender Carl Jenkinson on a permanent basis this January.

Big things were expected from Carl Jenkinson after he earned a move to Arsenal from Charlton Athletic as a teenager and the youngster certainly seemed to have all the required skills in his repertoire to succeed at the Emirates Stadium.

Unfortunately though, Jenkinson never really managed to make the right-back position at Arsenal his own despite being handed a plethora of opportunities and following a loan spell at West Ham United, the 24-year-old currently finds himself filling the role of a fringe player in North London.

According to reports from the Daily Star, Arsenal are on high alert regarding the contractual situation of Isco at Real Madrid.

Isco joined Real Madrid from Malaga during the summer of 2013 and despite showing flashes of brilliance; the attacking midfielder has never been able to cement his place as a regular in the star studded Los Blancos lineup.

With Isco entering the final 18 months of his contract, there has been a lot of speculation regarding his long term future at the Santiago Bernabeu and a host of clubs are understandably expressing their interest in signing the Spanish international.
