While Arsenal’s primary focus remains fixed on Brentford‘s David Raya, recent reports from 90min suggest that the Gunners are now seriously contemplating the prospect of acquiring Sanchez.

Sanchez has been a prominent figure for Brighton & Hove Albion, amassing an impressive total of 87 appearances for the club. His market value, as evaluated by Transfermarkt, stands at an impressive 22 million euros.

Beyond his commendable club performances, Sanchez has also represented the Spanish national team on two occasions, demonstrating his skills on the international stage.

However, despite his past prominence, Sanchez has experienced a decline in his position at Brighton recently. The emergence of Jason Steele and the arrival of newcomer Bart Verbruggen have impacted his standing within the team.
