Alexis Sanchez’s Arsenal future has been under the microscope for some time, and with the transfer window due to shut on Thursday, it is unclear whether he will move on or stay put.
Club legend Thierry Henry has suggested that he would be baffled if the Chile international chose to remain at the Emirates based on Sunday’s performance against Liverpool.
Arsene Wenger’s men were on the end of a damaging 4-0 defeat at Anfield, in a match where the team failed to get a single shot on target.
The players were ripped apart by pundits and fans after the game, and now Henry has turned his attention to Sanchez’s future.
The 28-year-old is in the final year of his contract, and if Arsenal do not sell him within the next few days, they risk losing the attacking player for nothing at the end of the season.
Sanchez started against the Reds, in what was his first appearance of the campaign, but he failed to make an impact on Merseyside.
During post-match analysis, Henry told Sky Sports:
“Why would he stay after watching this? After this type of performance? That is why [Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain] are not renewing their contracts. There is something wrong with Arsenal at the minute. It was unwatchable, at one point I wanted to leave. I don’t relate to the team and I don’t think a lot of the fans do. That is a problem.”
