Having reportedly outlined his intention to leave Barcelona, Alexis Sanchez is currently one of the most sought after talents in European football. Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United are all believed to be locked in a transfer tussle for the 25 year old Chilean forward who netted nineteen times in La Liga this season.
Although Sanchez is believed to be a talking point the transfer negotiations over Luis Suarez, his agent may have just let the cat out of the bag in revealing his client’s future destination. Fernando Felicevich, who also represents Arturo Vidal, has recently on Twitter started following the official Arsenal account and the likes of Mikel Arteta, Santi Cazorla, Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil.

A clear sign of Sanchez’s future destination? Or merely a “red herring”?
Football fans on Twitter have debated the significance of Felicevich’s actions. Some believe that a deal is imminent while others are understandably more cynical.
Alexis Sanchez' agent has out of nowhere followed the Arsenal account, Özil, Giroud, Arteta, and Cazorla lol interesting.

It's cool that Sanchez's agent has followed Arsenal players on Twitter but have Arsenal players followed him back? Deal only 50% done imo

Alexis Sanchez's agent has followed @Arsenal and a few Arsenal players. He has no Arsenal clients, signal for a transfer?

Sanchez's agent following Arsenal players and the club doesn't mean anything. They haven't followed back!
