Arsenal's forgotten man trains with Sanchez, Ozil at London Colney

Arsenal's forgotten man trains with Sanchez, Ozil at London Colney”

The north London club were ultimately unsuccessful with a £92m bid for the young French global on transfer deadline day, while wantaway star Alexis Sanchez stayed at Arsenal despite repeated bids from Premier League rivals Man City for his services. But there's always the January window.

Manchester City tabled a massive £60 million for the Chilean despite the attacker entering his final year of his contract.

The bid was rejected with reports suggesting City will continue their pursuit in the January transfer window. But he looked to be enjoying training on Friday ahead of the return of the Premier League. "Of course he's an Arsenal player now", Man City boss Pep Guardiola said.

The 28-year-old's week took another bad turn when Chile were beaten by Bolivia in World Cup qualifying to leave their hopes of competing in Russian Federation next summer on the rocks.

'All we can offer to the fans is that in the next game, from the first minute, we start with intensity, make a good game, get the three points and everything will come back as before.

They talk to me and I said no chance. "I have the back 7 of Chile and it is a huge responsibility, that's why it pays me that journalists and bad people criticise without knowing..." Sanchez, likewise, remained at Arsenal. Or are his days in North London numbered?
