Arsenal fans dying to see this happen.
This transfer window, Arsenal only completed two signings. One of them was Alexandre Lacazette and the other being Sead Kolasinac. Alexandre Lacazette joined Arsenal for a staggering £52m club record. While Kolasinac came on a free transfer.
Compared to other clubs who made several signings over the course of the summer, we had a below average transfer window. But if you see things from a different perspective, that we also managed to keep Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez this transfer window so I guess we could call our transfer window average.
Since the start of the new season, Arsenal fans have been dying to see our first choice attacking trio. Namely consisting of Ozil, Sanchez and Lacazette.
With Lacazette being the front man and Sanchez and Ozil playing in free roles behind the forward. Arsenal fans were so sure we’d be ripping apart any defense that comes and stands in our way.
Unfortunately, we haven’t seen the trio playing together not even for one minute.
Ozil is still out with an injury and Sanchez wanted to leave so he missed the start of the season.
Arsenal fans aren’t sure when they’ll see the trio together. As every day pass they grow restless.
Nearly a quarter of the season gone and I haven't seen ozil Sanchez lacazette in full. https://t.co/JE35RV34eh

And if that wasn’t enough, our dream of seeing the trio play together might be short-lived.
Recently, Michael Owen told BT sport that it is impossible for Alexis Sanchez to stay at Arsenal. Here’s what he said:
‘If he’s interested in winning medals then he’ll leave.
‘There’s no way possible that he can stay in my eyes.
‘He jumps off the page. He jumps into any Premier League team. And when you look at some of the teams we’ve got at the minute, they’re brilliant, yet he’d walk into any team. He is that good.
‘And I’d be astonished if you see him in an Arsenal shirt next season.
‘In many ways, why would you want to be that quality of player and not playing in the Champions League regularly and challenging for the league title? So you can understand it in a way.
‘But it’s going to leave such a big hole for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger to fill and it doesn’t bear thinking about at the moment.’
Robbie Savage added that he thinks Arsenal are ‘a million miles away’ from challenging for major silverware and believes Sanchez is in the ‘perfect situation’ to join a top club around Europe.
‘It’s the perfect situation for Alexis Sanchez, he knows every time he goes onto that pitch in an Arsenal shirt, he’s in the shop window,’
‘I’m sure every team around the world will want Alexis Sanchez on a free transfer.
‘Whether he goes in January is another thing. That backheel today is world-class and the thing is he works exceptionally hard for his side.
‘If it’s in January or at the end of the season – he wants to win trophies. I know Arsenal have won two FA Cups in recent years but, you know, Premier Leagues, Champions Leagues and I think Arsenal are a million miles away from that.’
We sincerely hope that’s not the case. And if it comes to that we should be prepared for that day. Till then let’s try to enjoy the beautiful football the trio has to offer us.
