Alexis Sanchez: Barcelona – Arsenal £35 million
Barcelona decided to sell Alexis in order to make way for the big man Luis Saurez and also to tackle the FFP problems. But this move turned out to be a disaster for Barca and a blessing for Arsenal. Arsenal, Liverpool and Juventus were among the top clubs, who needed Sanchez’s signature and Sanchez chose Premier League over Serie A and agreed terms with the Gunners. This was a high profile signing for Arsenal and also a big money move. Expectations were high when he joined Arsenal and he also stood up to the expectations.
Alexis is carrying the burden of injured Arsenal squad on his shoulders as he is the only player giving top class performance week in week out. Sanchez is helping Arsenal to maintain their status in not just Premier League but he also steered them till Champions League round of 16. Till now he is Arsenal’s top scorer and also among the contenders to win the Premier League golden boot and PFA player of the year award. Not only in Premier League but also for the Champions League he is Arsenal’s stand out performer. Till now he has racked up 10 goals and 6 assists in 19 Premier League games. Because of all these special qualities and never ending form Sanchez is one of the best summer transfer of Premier League.
