Oldham deny bid for Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez

Relax, Oldham fans: Alexis Sanchez isn't on his way.

While it may seem that a plethora of potential suitors are lining up to woo Alexis Sanchez at the moment, Oldham Athletic have categorically confirmed that they are not chasing the Chile international's signature.

Indeed, the League One outfit have been forced to deny they have any interest in signing Sanchez after being linked to the Arsenal forward by one of their own players.

The rumours began when Oldham defender Ryan McLaughlin contacted his own club on Twitter and, with tongue pressed firmly in cheek, demanded that they announce Sanchez's transfer.

The Latics were quick to respond while also instructing the 23-year-old Northern Ireland international to "grow up."
