Arsenal have two key clashes against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semi-finals this month, though, and despite his mixed form this year, their best chance of overcoming the Blues is with Sanchez in the team. We don't have to take care about that anyway.
Like last summer, Manchester City have been heavily linked with a move to the forward and reports suggest they've submitted a £20 million bid for him.
