From all indications, Alexis Sanchez will be leaving Arsenal this January. A few weeks ago Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed there is a real possibility that both Sanchez and Mesut Ozil will be leaving the club in January. Both players’ contract expires in the summer and unless they sign a new deal, Arsenal may be forced to sell next month rather than lose them on a free transfer.
Something tells me Ozil will stay loyal to Arsene Wenger and sign a new deal. I hope for Arsenal fans’ sake the German will stay as it will be a massive blow for them to lose both Ozil and Sanchez in the same year. One will be possible to replace while losing both would be nearly impossible to replace in the same window, especially when you consider how Wenger behaves when it comes to money.
One player Arsenal fans would like to see replacing Sanchez is Napoli’s Lorenzo Insigne. The Italian has been linked with Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal in the last couple of years. He is certainly a player I would like to see in the Premier League and Arsenal fans would surely like to see him in their team.
Last night many fans of the club took to Twitter to ask the club to sign the 26-year-old after he scored in his club’s 3-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk last night:
Welcome to the ARSENAL.. #LORENZO INSIGNE..

Dear @Arsenal please go to Napoli and get Lorenzo Insigne. He’s such a brilliant player.

If Alexis leaves, Lorenzo Insigne should be #arsenal’s next target

See we are being linked to Draxler again today. He for me would be the wrong choice. I think we need to get someone with a bit of pace, goal threat and directness to replace Alexis, like Insigne from Napoli
