Ian Wright has hit out at Arsenal’s handling of Alexis Sanchez’s transfer situation and urged the club to show “some pride”.

Arsene Wenger insisted all summer that the Chilean international was not for sale, however according to some reports the club were willing to sanction a £60million move to Manchester City if the Gunners could sort a deal for Thomas Lemar.

A £92million move for Lemar looked to have a good chance on deadline day, only for the France international to reportedly reject a move to the Emirates.

“It’s bad business to let Sanchez walk out next year for free,” tweeted Wright.

“Take the F*****g money! He don’t want to be there! We’re Arsenal so some pride.”

Arsenal brought in Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer from Schalke and Alexandre Lacazette for a club-record fee of £52million from Lyon this summer.
