Arsenal chief Executive and Wenger himself have many times in recent times confirmed the club now has money and can afford to compete in the transfer market, they also confirmed we don’t need to any more sell any of our players for money. And the club seem to have make good their word by rejecting an approach from Juventus for forward Alexis Sanchez, according to reports.
The Daily Mail says Gunners manager Arsene Wenger does not intend to sell Sanchez, despite talk of the Chile international growing unsettled at the Emirates Stadium and considering a move to Juventus.
The Italian have had two bids rejected for Sanchez by Arsenal. This is said to have forced them to turn their attention to Bayer Leverkusen forward Javier Hernandez.
Sanchez, 27, has seen his stock rise after scoring three goals for Chile and he received the award for player of the tournament at Copa America.
He has 13 goals in 30 Premier League appearances for Arsenal last season and has two years left on his current deal at the Emirates.
It was reported in May by Gazzetta dello Sport an Italian newspaper that the Turin was closely monitoring Sanchez amid talk that the Chilean was unsure over Arsenal’s ambitions and unwillingness to invest in the squad.
Arsenal has already signed Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach and Takuma Asano from Sanfreece this summer, while their move for Leicester striker Jamie Vardy fell through but are according to reports still in the market for a striker.
