Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has moved to Manchester United and amid all the speculations of how the life at Arsenal will be without Alexis, a former Arsenal striker says that the North London club won’t miss the Chilean.
Sanchez has been a pivotal player for the Gunners since joining in 2014 from Barcelona. The Chile international has been a prolific player for them and has won 2 FA Cups and 2 Community Shields with the Gunners, but was reluctant to sign a contract extension at the Emirates.
Sanchez joins Manchester United
He was poised to join Man City most of the season, but Manchester United have snatched them and the Chile forward has swapped the London club for them, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan coming to the other side.

Mkhitaryan joins Arsenal
And Campbell’s main concern is Arsenal’s midfield and defense as he says Wenger has too many options up front while his defensive side is thin.
“I think there is going to have to be a serious plan of how to shore up that central midfield area because Arsenal can be gung-ho. They can leave the midfield wide open so there has to be some groundwork, a defensive player in there to be able to combat and compliment those two players.”
Arsenal have already signed Alexandre Lacazette in the summer and the arrival of Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang will clearly the full there artillery going forward. But it is also important to have a good midfield and defense to compliment them according to the former Everton and Arsenal striker.
Campbell also added that Wenger must buy a centre back and a defensive midfielder to fill all the blanks in the ground.
The Gunners have already signed Konstantinos Mavropanos, a central defender while they are linked with a move for West Brom defender Jonny Evans in this window.
