Alexis Sanchez options narrow as link labelled 'not very strong'

Sanchez, 28, is approaching the final year of his contract with the Gunners this summer. "The simple equation is this: £400,000-a-week is £20m a year, over four years that's £80m". Arsenal can not afford to bring in Lacazette then two weeks later Sanchez leaves.

The fact that Alexis has not been in London this summer as he represents Chile at the Confederations Cup has probably not helped to progress his situation during an offseason period in which Arsenal will have hoped to sit down for talks.

He said, "I do genuinely think they are signing a guy who if he comes in with a pedigree like Ian Wright or even the way young [Nicholas] Anelka did when he was at Arsenal - he reminds me a little of that situation".

In May Sanchez claimed hgis future was in the hands of the club and a decision would be made at the end of the season, but so far nothing concrete has happened.

Zamorano believes Sanchez is a victor and desperately wants to lift the Champions League, something the Chile legend thinks can not happen at Arsenal.

Worth pointing out that as things stand Arsenal still yet to receive any. That is £125,000 more than the current offer.

The Chilean could be tempted to stay with Arsenal now that they've signed the additional attacking power of Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.

Arsenal seem to be loathe to sell to a Premier League rival and if no bids from overseas meet their demands it is possible they will choose to roll the dice and keep Alexis while he remains under contract.

Despite the fact that Arsenal could lose him for a free next season the Gunners would not sell their star player for less than £50million.

The former Barcelona man was an ever present for Arsenal in the Premier League during the 2016/17 campaign, scoring 24 goals and laying on 10 assists.
