Alexis Sanchez seems to have offered a very vague hint at continuing his career at Arsenal after he described his current club as “home” according to reports from 90min.
The striker took to Instagram after he returned to north London, following his international exploits with Chile, to post a not unusual image of himself in the Gunners’ home kit.
What has whipped Arsenal fans into a slight frenzy, however, is the accompanying caption alongside the photograph, which simply reads: “Back home. Focus.”
Naturally, supporters have been split down the middle with Sanchez’s latest social media offering, with some calling on the 28-year-old to pen a new deal with the club and others taking his comment as fresh hope that he’ll eventually stay.
Sanchez is in the final year of his current contract at the Emirates, and has been consistently linked with a switch away from the English capital since last September.
The ex-Barcelona star was a transfer deadline day target for Premier League rivals Manchester City, but the Citizens saw a £60m bid for his services rejected by Arsenal’s board after they failed to find a replacement in time.
