Great news for Arsenal fans: Former star claims Gunners are working to complete deal for superstar forward
Sol Campbell has suggested that Arsene Wenger is likely to secure arguably his most important deal heading into the summer.
Arsenal have been distracted by the uncertainty surrounding the future of key star Alexis Sanchez as he stalls on the decision to renew his contract.
However, former Gunner Campbell has moved to calm the nerves of fans by insisting the 28-year-old’s new deal is bound to be signed.
“I think there are a lot of things behind the scenes and it’s all about cutting a deal, getting the deal done and sometimes compromising,” the Ex-England international said
“Depending on how far the compromises go, it could be him compromising, it could be the club compromising, who knows? But I think everyone is out there to get the deal done.”
Sanchez proved his importance to Arsenal yet again on Sunday as he coolly slotted home the winning goal from the penalty spot.
“That fantastic penalty reminds me of Thierry Henry; he used to score a lot of those types of penalties, but he has comes in, his attitude is tremendous, he is one of the players that I have seen in the last five to 10 years that has come into Arsenal and bang, straight away he is working, he’s scoring goals and he’s into it.” Campbell added
“He’s not taken six months to get going or one year to get going at the club, so that should keep him in good stead. Hopefully the boards come and get the deal done…”
