Arsenal fans hoping Alexis Sanchez will choose to leave Barcelona and join them may take heart from the fact that Alexis' agent has started following the club and some of the key players on Twitter.
Or not—of course, following someone on Twitter is not exactly the same as a club committing millions of pounds to a signing, and a player giving the next years of his career to a new club.
But any and every bit of activity is seized upon as evidence of a player moving or staying these days—so when Fernando Felicevich, who appears to represent Sanchez, started following the official Arsenal account, as well as figures such as Olivier Giroud and Mikel Arteta, it was noticed.

It could all be totally innocent.
Alternatively, it could mean that any talk of Sanchez going to Liverpool as part of the deal taking Luis Suarez to Barcelona is wide of the mark.
