With 10 goals in his first 16 appearances for Arsenal, it is safe to say that Alexis Sanchez is stealing hearts across the Gunners’ fanbase at the moment.
But the Chilean might just be full-on marriage material now amid reports that he forced Barcelona to reject a more lucrative offer from Liverpool in order to join us.
Arsene Wenger is believed to have captured the 25-year-old for £33m but, according to Barcelona-based publication Sport, Liverpool tabled £36m….
The report goes on to state that Sanchez was not keen on a move to Anfield and told the Catalans to accept the lower offer in belief that the Emirates was a better fit for him.
We have not always enjoyed the best of professional relationships with Barcelona, but fair play to them if this is in any way accurate.
We can catch Sanchez doing what he does best in tonight’s Champions League visit of Anderlecht.
