If the reports emanating from The Express is anything to trust, Arsenal fans should be ready to witness the return of a prodigal son in January. This is because the media outlet are claiming that Unai Emery is interested in Alexis Sanchez’s services.
The Chilean star moved to the Theater of Dreams from Arsenal in a swap deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan switch to the opposite side in January.
Since he left the Emirates Stadium, the 29-year-old has failed to hit the ground running — scoring just three goals in 23 matches.
With his current woeful and unyielding performances at Old Trafford, Vice-chairman Ed Woodward is reportedly set to cash in on his signature in January.
The Express reported that Unai Emery is confident in the striker’s quality, despite his dwindled form, and he’s willing to re-capture him in the next winter market.
The same source also revealed that Paris St-German manager Thomas Tuchel is ready to compete with his predecessor for the £350,000-a-week player in January.
Tuchel is keen to add more firepower to his attacking prowess after seeing his side failed to perform excellently against Liverpool in last week’s Champions League fixture.
Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are two world-class strikers, adding Sanchez to the list would definitely make the Ligue 1 Champions deadly.
However, the Express admit that Unai Emery is leading the race for the player’s signature ahead of PSG; Juventus and Bayern Munich — who are equally monitoring Sanchez’s condition at Old Trafford.
