Great news for Arsenal fans.
Reports have sufficed in the English media wave that Arsenal star forward, Alexis Sanchez has flown back to London and he’s expected to start training as soon as possible.
The energic Arsenal attacker led Chile to their second consecutive Copa America title but sustained an ankle injury.
Arsenal are closing checking out the player’s recovery but they are certain he would miss the start of the new campaign – Arsenal’s first game is against Liverpool at the Emirates.
Arsene Wenger will be desperate for his talismanic attacker to be fit for the clash against Jurgen Klopp’s men, particularly given he is already set to be without a host of his top attacking talent for the clash.
Arsenal are still without a crop of their first team players due to their exxploits in the European Championship. Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, Oliver Giroud and Laurent Koscielny are yet away.
The potential absences of Sanchez, Giroud and Welbeck means Theo Walcott is in line to start the season as the club’s senior striker unless they successfully sign a new centre forward.
