Sanchez Now More Likely To Leave On A Free Than In January

Alexis Sanchez is reportedly going to be left out of Arsenal’s matchday squad this weekend just days after failing to secure a move away from Arsenal and William Hill are offering 6/4 that he bags the transfer that he wants in January – he is 1/2 to stay at Arsenal.


“Sanchez is going to have to knuckle down and play for Arsenal in this, a World Cup year, and the odds suggest that he is now more likely to leave at the end of the season on a free than in January,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Other names that will potentially be looking at moves in January are Ross Barkley (8/11 to leave), Riyad Mahrez (6/4), Virgil van Dijk (9/4) and Philippe Coutinho (3/1).


To leave their respective clubs in January:

Coutinho: 3/1 yes; 2/9 no

Van Dijk: 9/4 yes; 1/3 no

A Sanchez: 6/4 yes; 1/2 no

Mahrez: 6/4 yes; 1/2 no

Barkley: 8/11 yes; 1/1 no
