Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has been the integral part of the Gooners line-up, and with the transfer window right around the corner, the Chile international now seems to be the centre of their business as well.

Sanchez, who has just a year left on his current Arsenal contract, is reportedly expected to leave the Emirates this summer. Contrary reports, though, suggest that the 28-year-old will only decide his future after the Confederations Cup, whose final is on July 2, 2017.

However, Alexis Sanchez may have already decided that his future lies away from the North London outfit, as per the club’s official website, which lists the Chilean as well as Danny Welbeck as holders of the number 7 shirt.

Arsenal released their new home kit on Wednesday, and offered the fans an opportunity to pre-order the kit. But the website listed Danny Welbeck as number 7, an error that Arsenal fans were quick to pick up, as the English striker wore number 23 last season.



Also, Sanchez and Ozil were not present at the official unveiling at King Cross station, but that may have been the case due to the fact that both Alexis and Mesut have their personal sponsorship deals with Adidas and Nike respectively.

Sanchez is yet to sign a new contract extension to continue his stay with the Gunners, amid the ongoing interest in his services from Manchester City and Bayern Munich.
