Arsenal could sell Alexis Sanchez for £35m in January amid concerns about his commitment, according to the Daily Mail.
Having turned down £60m from Manchester City in the summer, Arsenal could sell Alexis Sanchez for almost half the price in January.
That’s according to the Daily Mail, who report that there are growing concerns at the club about Alexis’ commitment and work rate.
Staff have apparently noticed a reduced amount of effort from him in training and in games.
His teammates, meanwhile, are allegedly unhappy with him and have questioned why he wasn’t sold in the summer.
A couple of questions arise from this report, however.
One is that if Arsenal feel he isn’t committed, why did they keep him?
Another is if he’s not working hard enough, why is he still playing games?
That aside, this isn’t the first time Arsenal have been reported as considering January bids for Alexis.
Nor will it be the last.
Alexis was fantastic against Crystal Palace on Thursday night (as Pep watched on).
Performances like those are why Arsenal kept him only to find them hard to come by this season.
But if there really is an issue behind the scene, maybe it would be best to move him on and end this side show once and for all.
