Former Arsenal defender Lauren has said that the Gunners should be willing to take Alexis Sanchez back from Manchester United, according to American Gambler.
It’s a strange call from the Invincible defender because of the way that the Chilean international left the club back in January 2018.
He said: “”Sanchez is a top player and top players are always welcome at Arsenal. If Unai Emery could get him back mentally because it has been a while without him playing, then he could be a good addition.
“It depends if he is the kind of player that Unai would enjoy having at Arsenal.”
But Gunners fans on Twitter were not impressed with the assertion from the former defender – they still haven’t forgiven him for the nature of his departure.
And his form has fallen off a cliff since he joined United – with the trademark energy that characterised his prime absolutely gone.
Arsenal fans online were in no doubt about how they’d react if he did come back to north London and we’ve put together the best of the reaction…
With his wages and attitude? pic.twitter.com/9dIFxlATYn

Not with the way he left, especially when one considers the fact that aloy of the players wanted him out because of his attitude near the end. Bringing him back would do more harm than good

He would need a huge wage decrease. I think the manner of which he left has lost a lot of fans respect in comparison to say Ramsey leaving. I still remember some of the best moments of Alexis especially in away games. I would welcome him ?

Lauren clearly unaware of the dressing room rumours about Sánchez’s toxicity towards the end of his time in North London. Individually superb (though not so much now) but not really a great team player.

But not good for the books. His wage bill is too much.
