Arsenal’s forward signing not allowed to depart until Suarez arrives.
Arsenal have everything in place to sign Barcelona’s Chilean international winger Alexis Sanchez for a fee believed to be around £28 million, but they might have to wait until next week to finalise the deal, reports the Daily Express.
The imminent transfer is being delayed by Barcelona’s £75 million swoop for Luis Suarez where a fee-structure agreement is yet to be arrived at between Liverpool and the Catalans.
Suarez’s move to Barca is expected to go through within this week though, which means that Sanchez could move to the Emirates Stadium next week.
Arsenal’s fans will have their fingers crossed that the move does happen soon enough to avoid last minute complications.
Sanchez is being tipped to become the marquee forward who can boost the Gunners’ Premier League title chances and has already agreed personal terms to complete his move to Arsenal after reportedly having held a private meeting with Arsene Wenger.
