Arsenal urged to make approach for creative Inter Milan forward

By | October 13, 2021

Arsenal should think about re-signing Alexis Sanchez if the Inter Milan attacker is available on a free transfer, according to Kevin Campbell.

The former Gunners forward, speaking to Football Insider, stated the 32-year-old star has lost his way since departing the Emirates in January 2018.

According to a report by InterLive, via The Mirror, Alexis has been told he is free to depart the Nerazzurri in the new year.

The former Manchester United and Barcelona man has two years remaining on his current deal at the San Siro.

Alexis contributed 80 goals and 45 assists in his 166 matches for Arsenal, form the Chile international has struggled to replicate since.

When quizzed by Football Insider if he’d welcome Sanchez’s return, Kevin said:

“Alexis Sanchez was incredible when he came to Arsenal but personally, I cannot see him coming back. Is he talented? Of course he is. But he has not been the same since he left.

“The Manchester United move was a disaster for him. He has gone to Inter Milan and it has not quite worked out there either, even though they won the title.

“I don’t think we’ll take him back but if you could get him for nothing and he is willing to graft… Who knows what Mikel Arteta will do.

“It is a fantasy and a nice thought but I think the club have moved on. I doubt we will see that happening.”
