Malcom to Arsenal, to replace Alexis Sanchez…
As the weekend goes on, the ducks are all being lined up, so to speak. The January transfer window is in full whirl and it all centres around Arsenal.
After days of speculation, with Manchester United joining Manchester City in the race for Alexis Sanchez, there appears to be clear movement.
Alexis Sanchez has not travelled with the Arsenal squad to play Bournemouth in the Premier League on Sunday.
Man United close in on Alexis Sanchez…
The most likely destination for Alexis Sanchez is Manchester United, who appear to be edging out their “noisy neighbours” Manchester City in the race for the Chilean.
All through the window so far, and even going back to the summer, we were told that Arsenal would not sell Alexis Sanchez without a replacement.
Well, Malcom looks to be the player who will directly come in and take over from Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal.
Another social media hint emerges over Malcom to Arsenal move
For many Arsenal fans, the Alexis Sanchez era at The Emirates is over.
Whilst they would prefer not to sell Alexis to Manchester United, it is now all about incomings.
And, Arsenal Twitter has been constantly updated with Malcom updates all weekend.
Meanwhile, his agents have been in London negotiating with Arsenal. Spurs and Manchester United were reportedly interested but those links have disappeared in recent days.
“Like this if Malcoms a Gooner”
On Instagram, one Arsenal fan has sent a cheeky message to one of Malcom’s representatives.
Luis Fenando Menezes Garcia who was one of three agents in London over the weekend, liked the comment below.
This comment came on the picture which can be seen below, of Malcom with Luis Fenando Menezes Garcia after Bordeaux’s win at Troyes.
The account in question is undoubtedly that of Malcom’s agent, and has been running since 2016.
