The english premier league transfer window has closed, and every club should feel happy about what they have achieved thus far. However, some players might not feel the same, especially the likes of Alexis Sanchez.

The front man for Arsenal has long sought a move away from the club, but Arsene Wenger and the board had other problems. Nonetheless, he made his intentions extremely clear but actions from Arsenal to find a replacement was too late.

Apparently, the club decided to seek a replacement to allow Sanchez a move to Manchester City on deadline day, a decision that came back to haunt.

Wenger wanted to sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco on deadline day, but as things were close to finalizing, talks fell through the floor and everything just unraveled.

Reports claim that because of this failure, Alexis Sanchez and his agent are unhappy. The disappointment means the player must now wait until January to secure a possible move to Manchester City.

Interestingly enough, reports coming out of Spain claims Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, rejected the chance to sign Sanchez as he felt his current attacking line-up is quite sufficient.

What about Riyad Mahrez, then?

On deadline day, the player was linked with a possible move to Chelsea after Algeria allowed him to leave the camp to sort out his future.

As it stands, it would seem as if he was seeking a transfer to Manchester United, but unfortunately for him, no club came calling.

He’s not a terrible forward, so a chance might very well come up for him again in January.

At the end of the day, other clubs are quite happy with what they’ve accomplished on deadline day. Chelsea, for instance, managed to sign both Danny Drinkwater and Davide Zappacosta.

Both players should give Antonio Conte the depth he requires in a Chelsea squad going forward as the team prepares to tackle the Champions League.

Drinkwater is probably one of the most prominent midfield footballers in The English Premier League. He worked hard to help Leicester City to win the 2015-2016 league title, and that was at a time when N’Golo Kante was Leicester player.

By playing for Chelsea, Drinkwater will get the chance to team up with Kante again to form an unstoppable force in the midfield.

One Costa leaves, another one takes his place

As for Davide Zappacosta, he’s a talented Right Back who once played for Torino before his transfer to the Blues. He’s quite competent at his job, which is something Conte is looking for in each of his players.

Chances are, he might not play in Saturday’s game against Leicester City, but there’s a good reason for Drinkwater to get on the pitch in the second half against his former club.
