Arsenal are heading for a tumultuous summer as they look to hold on to Alexis Sanchez. But where will the Chilean end up?
The striker has less than 18 months to go on his current Gunners contract, and tensions have emerged between Sanchez and the club in recent months.
Boss Arsene Wenger dropped his star forward for the Premier League defeat at Liverpool.
There has been no movement between Sanchez and Arsenal over a new contract either, which leaves the Gunners facing a difficult off-season.
A host of Europe’s biggest clubs have been linked with a bid, including Manchester City and Chelsea.
But having sold Robin van Persie to Manchester United in 2012 – and then seeing the Dutchman win the title at Old Trafford – the Gunners are known to be reluctant to sell to Premier League rivals.
That’s good news for those on the continent, including Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.
The Turin outfit have reportedly tabled a £25m bid for Sanchez, while Les Parisiens are still keen to land a successor to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Despite Arsenal’s troubles this season, Sanchez is continuing to produce the goods.
The former Barcelona ace has netted 17 Premier League goals and 10 assists this season, making him the most productive player in the division.
For now we wait and see if Wenger will start Sanchez for tonight’s Champions League clash at home to Bayern Munich.
The Gunners are 5-1 down from a disastrous first leg, and we make Sanchez 5/1 to net the opener.
Although with Bayern odds-on favourites, the Chilean’s frustrations with his current employers could continue tonight.
