​Arsenal legend Winterburn: Lacazette signing may convince Sanchez to stay

Arsenal legend Nigel Winterburn believes the signing of Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon may help dissuade Alexis Sanchez from wanting to leave the club.

Gunners fans have become restless with the Chilean, with preseason training back underway at Colney.

"I think it was obvious to Arsenal fans and to Arsene Wenger that one of those areas to strengthen is the centre forward position", Winterburn told Sky Sports

"I am hoping Giroud will stay, I still feel he is valuable to the team as well. Arsenal know they need quality to help them challenge for the title."

"I hope the Lacazette deal leaves [Sanchez] at the club. He can play on the left, up front or in the hole.

"Arsenal cannot afford to bring in Lacazette then two weeks later Sanchez leaves."
