Chilean star ‘usurped’ by midfield pal Cazorla.
Some Spanish papers have a record of sensationalism, but El Mundo Deportivo took it to the next level on Thursday morning when they claimed that Alexis Sanchez is already en route to the exit door at the Emirates.
A report on the story in the Metro claimed that it is because the Chilean international is unhappy at the attention being received by teammate Sani Cazorla.
Sanchez only joined the Gunners over the summer from La Liga giants Barcelona, and has so far played a starring role in their campaign so far.
However, with Sanchez currently on the sidelines, he has been overlooked by the impressive Cazorla, who has picked up six goals in his previous 10 games.
And according to those reports in Spain this turn of events has not sat well with the forward, and he is now ready to move on when the transfer window re-opens over the summer.
But it is unlikely that there will be too many teams that could afford him, or convince Arsenal to even go through with letting him go.
