Arsenal’s attempts to tie down the first-team star player Alexis Sanchez to a new long-term contract have thus far proved unsuccessful as the Chilean turned down an initial £275,000 a week, plus an extra 20% if the Gunners qualify for the Champions League next season.

Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez has seemingly admitted he’s keen to leave the club this summer in search of a side in the Champions League. The 28-year-old was speaking with Chile’s Radio Sport, and said: “I have made my decision, but now the decision has to be taken by Arsenal.”

“It depends on them. I have to wait to know what they want. My idea is to play and win the Champions League. It’s a dream I have had since I was little.” This news comes not long after Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insisted Sanchez would be staying at the club this coming season, suggesting a new deal could be on the horizon.

We all have to agree last season was one of mixed emotions for Arsenal fans. The Gunners long run of top-four finishes ended, but Arsene Wenger’s side won the FA Cup for the third time in four seasons.

Last season was a bit of a shock to the system. All the speculation over Wenger’s future was a distraction and we now know the veteran French boss will be Arsenal boss for the next two seasons.

Alexandre Lacazette could be a Golden Boot contender 0

I have to admit that I have had my reservations about Arsenal signing French striker Alexandre Lacazette. However, having taken a closer look at his goalscoring statistics from his Lyon career it is hard to not get excited by his signing.

The Frenchman has scored 129 times and produced 43 assists in his 275 appearances for OL, which is definitely a decent record even if he has been playing in Ligue One.

At 26 years-old Lacazette should be entering the peak years of his football career. He has many years left to bang goals in for the Gunners. Strikers generally peak in their mid to late twenties and enjoy their best years in front of goal.

Arsenal’s Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez is demanding a wage packet of around £400,000 to sign a new deal with the Gunners, according to the Daily Mirror.

As we all know Sanchez has just a year left on his current contract to run and speculation has been rife that he wishes to leave the club.

However, the Mirror claims that Sanchez is willing to sit out the last year of his deal at the Emirates and leave on a free transfer. He would then be able to collect a massive signing on fee with his new club.

Arsenal may turn to Mahrez instead of Monaco star 0

With the arrival of striker Alexandre Lacazette set to be announced imminently, Arsenal are expected to now step up their bid to sign Monaco winger Thomas Lemar.

The French champions are understandably not keen on selling the youngster and have resisted any interest in the winger’s services so far this summer. In fact, Arsenal were reported to have had a bid of around £30m rejected last month. Monaco are attempting to ward off the Gunners interest by raising their asking price.

Lemar is regarded as one of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger’s main transfer targets this summer. The winger would add pace and direct running to the Gunners attack.

It seems that Arsenal are in fact close to the signing of Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, as the French clubs president Jean-Michel Aulas has told French media outlet Le Progres : “Alexandre Lacazette’s transfer to Arsenal could be actioned within the next day or two.

“The figure reported by the English media of around €67m (including €12m in add-ons) is impossible and not realistic. Arsenal’s first offer was around €45m, the transfer will be concluded in the range of €45m to €50m.”

Ancelotti: “Bayern won’t pay crazy sums to sign Sanchez” 0

Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti admitted the perennial Bundesliga champions are interested in Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, but admitted the Germans won’t over-pay for the Chilean who is out of contract the following summer. Sanchez is 7/1 to join Bayern this summer but the asking price and reported wage demands could be a stumbling block.

“If an opportunity comes up, the club will be ready. There are lots of rumours. Alexis is a great player but not the only one in the world. I like Alexis. There are possibilities in the transfer market, which can be in many directions,” said Ancelotti, reports the Mirror.

Alexis Sanchez is no doubt Arsenal’s star player, but the situation over his future with the club is now becoming tiresome. The Chilean has just a year left on his contract and there are no signs of him signing a new deal with the Gunners.

Last season Sanchez scored 30 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal. The 28-year-old would be very hard to replace, especially taking into account the fact the Gunners are likely to receive a smaller fee as the months on his contract tick down.
