Alexis Sanchez is the biggest star in the Arsenal team, and without any sentiment attached, he’s one of the best players in the Premier League.
After this season, he’d have just one more year left in his contract with Arsenal, and the Chilean is already fed up with life at the Emirates.
Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore has pleaded with Chelsea to sign the 28-year-old at all costs.
“I could see him at Chelsea and being incredible,” Collymore wrote in his column for the Daily Mirror.
“Imagine a frontline with Diego Costa down the middle, Eden Hazard and Sanchez on the wings with a quality No.10 behind. That would be awesome.
“He would be the kind of player Chelsea boss Antonio Conte would love – work rate, desire and genuine world class.
“And we need in the Premier League as many world-class players as we can get our hands on.
“So I am pleading for a Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool – any of the teams to finish in the top four with the money – to go and put in a bid for him, tell him you will put your arm around him and win trophies with him.”
Without a doubt, I’m one of those who want Chelsea to sign Sanchez by all means. It’d be worth it.
