What next for Sanchez?

Reports from The Sun indicate that the former Arsenal man is set to become the latest big-name addition to the Ligue 1.

The 33-year-old has already reportedly agreed a three-year deal with French club Marseille, and an announcement is imminent.

Interestingly, Inter already has a number of former Arsenal stars in the squad including Sead Kolasinac, Matteo Guendouzi and Nuno Tavares, who is on a season-long loan at the club.

Sanchez’s most successful spell as a player came at Arsenal, where he spent four years before a controversial move to Manchester United.

After a torrid 18 months at United, he was offered a lifeline by Inter, and his career took a slight upward trajectory in Italy.

Meanwhile, Marseille are looking good in the French league as they managed to thrash Reims 4-1 in their opener to keep up with Paris Saint Germain.
