Alexis Sanchez, who is on a splendid run for Arsenal, has impressed manager Arsene Wenger to the point that the Frenchman has called his star player ‘alive’ even when dead. The manager also gave the media an important update on Alexis’s contract situation during his post match conference.
Alexis has kicked of the 2016-17 season with an impressive run of form, with the Chilean playing some of the best football in his Premier League career thus far.
The versatile forward has already scored 8 goals in 13 premier league appearances thus far, and a total tally of 10 goals from 16 appearances in all competitions.
He is currently the third in the list of Premier League goalscorers. There is no doubt that Arsene Wenger and Arsenal are now hellbent on extending his contract.
His brace against Bournemouth can be cited as a fine example of the kind of threat the Chilean brings to the game and how effective he can be as a goalscorer for the Gunners.
In his post match conference, Arsene Wenger, delighted as he was, had only praise for his star player. Speaking to The Official website of Arsenal, in his post match conference Wenger had this to say:
Even when he looks dead, he’s still alive and always finds the resources to do something special. He has that conditioning which allows him to always find an extra gear to be dangerous
When asked about the Chilean international’s contract situation, the manager had this to say:
It is important. How important it is, I don’t know – we will not sort it tonight. We have some time in front of us.
Well, Sanchez is undoubtedly Arsenal’s main man at the moment, and fans, pundits and the media alike are eager to know a little more about whether the forward will extend his stay.
With competition for the title tougher than ever, and with Arsenal firing on all cylinders with Alexis, Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud, all scoring goals, it is crucial that Alexis Sanchez is tied to a new contract as early as possible.
Pray hard, for Alexis must remain in North London for a long time to come!
