We all know what transpired on Deadline Day between Arsenal and Manchester City as the latter looked to complete a move for Sanchez, but just days after the close to the summer transfer window it appears the Chilean international could miss some time due to injury.

Reports out of Chile indicate that Sanchez picked up an ankle injury during training with Chile on Saturday as the South American side prepares for Tuesday’s CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying match against Bolivia.

The 28-year-old attacker hasn’t been ruled out just yet for La Roja, who currently sit fourth in WCQ with three matches remaining.

The concern over Sanchez’s reported injury is understandable for both club and country, and especially for Arsenal — who started the season with the winger on the shelf before returning for last weekend’s 4-0 defeat against Liverpool.
