Arsenal fan group confirms Alexis dogs banner

Alexis is out of contract next summer and Arsenal fans have shown their love for the star by dedicating a banner to his beloved canines

An Arsenal fan group has confirmed that they will unfurl a banner of Alexis Sanchez and his two dogs for the next home game at Emirates Stadium.

Alexis, 27, regularly posts posts of himself together with his two golden retrievers Atom and Humber, prompting one fan to suggest that the fans should host a banner for the dogs.

The Chile star is out of contract next summer and his agent Fernando Felicevich remains locked in talks with Gunners officials over extending the forward’s deal.

Twitter user @aliladiere explained to Goal how the idea came about after seeing a photo of the dogs on Sanchez’s Instagram account.

"It was a tweet I thought of as I was looking at Alexis' Instagram. It's just a bit of fun - then I get people agreeing with me and sending in photos!" 

"The real credit goes to the Arsenal fans for sharing it and to the REDAction fan group. They're making it a reality, so let's hope he likes it”

"I hope Alexis sees what he means to the club and our fans. We can have different opinions on many things but every Arsenal fan wants Alexis to stay”

Sanchez has previously starred alongside his dogs for a Chilean dog food advert and Gunners fan group REDAction have revealed that plans are in place for two banners to makes their debut when Arsenal play Burnley on January 22.
