Alexis Sanchez is facing taunts and teases from his Gunners teammates about the collapse of his intended move to Manchester City in last summers transfer window.

This is according to Gunners striker, Chuba Akpom.

 The negotiations had reached a maturer stage before collapsing as Manchester City and Arsenal had agreed on a deal worth 60 million pounds, but the transfer collapsed due to Arsene Wenger’s failed attempt to sign Monaco’s Thomas Lemar as a replacement for the Chilean player.
Sanchez had been in high hopes of leaving the Emirates Stadium over the summer, having made the decision to go into the final 12 months of his current contract with Arsenal. But now that he is still at Arsenal, he is having to endure ‘banter’ from the dressing room.

“We do banter about it to be fair’, said Akpom.

“But at the end of the day, he’s still at Arsenal. Everyone is happy, the fans are happy and he’s happy.

“I think with a player like Sanchez he just blocks it out because all he wants to do is play football.

“He’s so focused on football, he blocks out a lot of negativity and transfer rumours,” Akpom told the Daily Star.
