Arsenal happy with Alexis Sanchez decision

The Gunners are reportedly delighted with the way they have handled the situation of star forward Alexis Sanchez ahead of the transfer deadline.

Arsene Wenger has faced severe scrutiny in recent weeks over his transfer business, especially after his side’s concerning start to the new season.

Heading into transfer deadline day, Arsenal were expected to lose the services of not only Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain but Alexis Sanchez as well.

But according to Sky Sports, Arsenal are now pleased with the decision to not allow Sanchez to depart the club so late in the summer transfer window.

Reports earlier on Thursday suggested that the Gunners had reached an agreement with Manchester City over a fee in the region of £60 million for the sale of the 28-year-old.

However, Arsenal’s failure to land a replacement for Sanchez in Thomas Lemar saw the deal put on hold before Per Guardiola’s side later made it clear that they had ended their pursuit of the forward.

Wenger and the club’s hierarchy have been heavily criticised by many fans for turning down the opportunity of a profit from the sale of Sanchez but Arsenal are reportedly delighted to have made that decision.
