Arsenal transfer news: Aguero swap deal on the cards, Sanchez gets a reaction from team-mates and more - 26th September 2017
BBC commentator endorses Aguero-Sanchez swap
Jonathon Pearce, who commentates on the broadcasting network, believes a swap between Manchester City's Sergio Aguero and Alexis Sanchez is highly likely in January.
Daily Star reports this unexpected announcement as Aguero has started the season in a stellar manner and looks to have made it into Guardiola's good books. On the other hand, Alexis Sanchez almost sealed a move to City during the summer but it failed to materialize in the end. Thus, the Chilean will be looking to complete a move in the upcoming transfer windows.
However, Pearce's statements open up the possibility of a swap deal and it is not too far-fetched to expect it to go through.
Sanchez at the receiving end of banter
Arsenal team-mate Chuba Akpom revealed to Daily Star about Sanchez receiving stick from his team-mates due to his failed move to City in the summer. The youngster told:
“We do banter about it to be fair. But at the end of the day, he’s still at Arsenal. Everyone is happy, the fans are happy and he’s happy.
“I think with a player like Sanchez he just blocks it out because all he wants to do is play football. He’s so focused on football, he blocks out a lot of negativity and transfer rumours.”
The banter might not continue for long once Sanchez returns back to his best in the coming weeks.
Arsenal interested in MK Dons teenage sensation
According to The Mirror, MK Dons attacker Dylan Asonganyi is on the radar of top Premier League clubs. The 16-year old scored 9 goals in 7 games for the U-18 side and his quality has attracted the attention of Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool.
The Dons' manager Robbie Nielsen is reported to have been heavily impressed by Asonganyi and is willing to fast-track the player into the first team.
The League One side are currently 11th in the league and will hope to receive a lift from the youngster. However, it also provides the elite clubs such as Arsenal to monitor the player better for a future transfer.
