Will Arsenal be Forced to Sell Alexis Sanchez? Latest Olivier Giroud Transfer Odds

Some of the London media outlets were questioning late Sunday whether Arsenal would be forced to do away with their star Alexis Sanchez, currently at 4-9 odds to be the top league goal-scorer.

To be clear, there are no transfer odds being offered on Sanchez for the 2016-2017 season.  Great news for Arsenal fans and futures bettors.

The Sunday Express writes:

Arsenal are prepared to give both players bumper pay rises to ensure they sign extensions, with their current deals running out in 2018.

But the problem for the north London club is that in doing so they will shatter their wage structure.

Arsenal’s rivals have been paying far more in wages to their players for far longer - Manchester United are shelling out £200,000 a week to Bastian Schweinsteiger and he hasn’t even played a game this season.

Meanwhile, Olivier Giroud says he is prepared to stay put in Arsenal and challenge Sanchez for the striker role.

'I do not have any doubts about my future at Arsenal,' Giroud told Telefoot.

'There is always competition for places. There are a lot of attackers at every big club.

'At the moment, the coach prefers Sanchez up front, also because I have been injured. I just hope to get playing time again now. Alexis and I are different types of attackers and the coach has to make a decision.”

Transfer odds were not immediately available on either Sanchez or Giroud so the odds are good both will stay put.

Arsenal were coming in at 6-1 odds to win the 2017 Premier League title as of mid November.
