Inter Milan are preparing to rock Arsenal with a £69million offer for Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean still hasn’t signed a new contract to extend the two years left on his current deal and even more astonishingly, it hasn’t even been discussed.
News outlet Don Balon report that, as brought to our attention by the Sun, new Nerazzurri manager Frank de Boer is ready to take advantage of the situation, though he may have to fight champions Juventus for the midfielder as they continue to search for a replacement for Paul Pogba.
The only positive for Arsenal in all of this is that target Mauro Icardi could come the other way as part of any swap deal.
All the same, the Gunners seem to somehow be in crisis mode already, just a game into the new season.
It’s widely thought that their star players are growing frustrated by the club’s lack of transfer activity and that could explain why neither Sanchez or playmaker Mesut Ozil have put pen to paper on new deals.
The Emirates isn’t a happy place to be right now, and Arsene Wenger’s going to have to pull off a huge coup in the transfer market if he is to ease the frustrations which threaten to boil over in North London.
