Arsenal should re-sign Manchester United flop Alexis Sanchez in the summer transfer window, according to former Gunners defender Lauren.

The Gunners sold Sanchez to their bitter rivals in the 2018 January transfer window as Henrikh Mkhitaryan moved in the opposite direction as part of the season.

The Chile international has failed to hit the ground running since his move to Manchester United following his struggles under both Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

In fact, Manchester United’s best-paid player managed to score just one goal and make three assists in nine starts and 11 substitutes appearances in the Premier League in 2018-19 season.

Sanchez has been linked with a potential move to Serie A in recent weeks as Inter Milan look to bring the 30-year-old to the San Siro.

However, former Arsenal defender Lauren would like to see Sanchez back in a Gunners shirt despite his controversial move to Manchester United little over 18 months ago.

“Sanchez is a top player – and top players are always welcome at Arsenal,” said Lauren, speaking exclusively to AmericanGambler.com.

“If Emery could get him back mentally because it has been a while without him playing, then he could be a good addition.

“It depends if he is the kind of player that Unai would enjoy having at Arsenal.”

Sanchez was a cult hero at Arsenal during his four and a half seasons at the north London side following his £35m move to the Gunners from FC Barcelona in the 2014 summer transfer window.

The South American netted 80 times in 166 games for Arsenal to establish himself as a key player alongside Mesut Ozil before his move to Manchester United in January 2018.
