Tony Adams thinks Arsenal should offload Alexis Sanchez if the Chilean doesn’t want to be at the club.

Adams says that the old system of keeping players who want to be at the club and getting rid of everyone else is still the best one, explaining (via FourFourTwo): “We used to have a philosophy at Arsenal: if you don’t want to be at the club then bye-bye, we shake your hand and get people that do, whatever money.

“I’ve always loved those principles, so if [Sanchez] doesn’t want to be here then, absolutely, try and get the most you can for him and get him on and get someone that does want to play for the club.”

Arsenal fans are starting to come around to the same opinion.

At the start of the summer, I can’t remember too many suggesting we should get rid of Alexis and move on. However, as time went by it became clear there would be no new contract, and that the Chilean did actually want to leave. Things started to change.

By the end of the window, when Thomas Lemar almost ended up joining on deadline day, many would’ve agreed with Adams that it was for the best to sign someone who actually wanted to join.

It didn’t work out, and, instead, the club and fans have had to deal with a number of less than encouraging performances on the pitch since then from Alexis.

At this point most are fed up and just want the situation resolved so the club can move on.

Despite all the talk of Alexis’ professionalism, commitment and love for playing football, this season, he’s yet to show much of it.
