EPL rivals should go after Arsenal contract rebel - Collymore

Arsenal ace Alexis Sanchez has ignited fresh speculation over his future after he was angry over his side celebrating the 3-3 draw against Bournemouth at Dean Court.

The Gunners top-scorer was furious with the club’s performance despite their miraculous comeback from 3-0 down, and he vented his frustration towards his teammates in the dressing room.

According to The Sun, the 27-year-old was inconsolable even after the game as he distanced himself from his teammates due to their failure to show up on the night.

The attacker has been holding out on a fresh contract with the Gunners, and his current behaviour could highlight his intention to leave the Emirates at the end of the season.

Chelsea and Manchester City are keeping tabs on the player’s developments, and either club could pounce for his signature in a deal in excess of £50m in the summer.

Alexis has already contributed 13 goals and seven assists in the top flight, and the club’s faithful will be hoping that he can shake off his latest disappointment in the Gunners shirt.

Arsenal are currently fifth in the league standings, eight points adrift of league leaders Chelsea.
