5 potential replacements for Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal
These five players can easily replace Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal.
Finding a replacement for star man Alexis Sanchez is not an easy task for the Gunners. For a player of his skills, he was bought for only £35 million back in 2014. However, he is out of contract in the summer and is desperate for a move in the January window itself.
While Arsenal thwarted Manchester City's advances for the Chilean in the summer, it is only a matter of time before he leaves the North London outfit.
Arsene Wenger will have had plenty of time to think about the South American's potential replacement, with any transfer possibly costing the Gunners millions. We count down five possible candidates to take the mantle up at Arsenal after their star man leaves.
#5 Yannick Carrasco
The 24-year-old Belgian winger has played an instrumental role in Atletico Madrid's success in recent years but has been involved in a number of high-profile bust-ups over the course of last year.
Carrasco was reported to have fallen out with teammates Koke and Gabi, as well as fitness coach Oscar Ortega. Diego Simeone is reluctantly ready to call time on the former Monaco forward’s time in Madrid.
Carrasco is now returning to full fitness after a knee injury. His chances of playing at Atletico considering his strained relationship with Simeone though, are limited. He has already scored 3 goals and set up a further 3 in just 12 appearances in La Liga so far. He has the potential to be an astute signing for the Gunners if the deal materializes.
