In the summer of 2016, Sanches' name was in the headlines with just about every top club in Europe wanting to sign the talented Portugal international.
And, just 12 months ago, the Gunners broke their resolve by bringing Gabriel Magalhaes to north London, too.
Interestingly, Lille are said to be open to selling Sanches because of the current cash crisis in French football.
Lille are reportedly in the process of selling players this summer to raise funds, so an exit could very well be on the cards.
Sanches has been with Lille since 2019, where he spent a season with Magalhaes before the defender moved onto Arsenal.
And it is that relationship between the two players which is getting Arsenal fans the most excited.
Gabriel recently commented "come to Arsenal" on Sanches' latest Instagram post, to which Sanches responded, "I'm [waiting] for your invitation". Make of that what you will.
