As Gooners have known for a while now, Sanchez seems set to leave the Emirates next summer when his contract runs out, with Manchester City looking the most likely destination, so Arsene Wenger and his team have had plenty of time to find potential replacements.
And, according to the Metro, Arsenal will offer £35 million for the Ivory Coast winger and aim to take him to North London – but the reaction to the news on social media hasn’t exactly gone down well:

Zaha has been linked with a move to Arsenal’s bitter rivals Spurs in the past, but is the former Manchester United winger ready for a step up to one of English football’s heavyweights?
What do you think?
