Alexis Sanchez would chose to sign for Liverpool instead of Arsenal if he was given the option again, reckons Danny Murphy.
“When Alexis Sanchez had the choice in 2014, he decided to join Arsenal ahead of Liverpool,” Murphy told The London Evening Standard.
“If he had those options again today, there is a good chance he would go the other way.”
“Look at Liverpool in 2017. They are in the Champions League. They have increased the capacity of Anfield to 54,000 and there are outline plans to take it to 60,000, similar to Emirates Stadium.”
“Liverpool seem to be on the way up, whereas I feel Arsenal are on a plateau — and if they lose Sanchez before the transfer window closes next Thursday, they will find themselves in an incredibly difficult position.”
