The much talked-about future of Arsenal star man Alexis Sanchez has been given a major update at the beginning of the week as reports emerge that the Chilean striker has agreed on a move away from the Emirates.
With just over a year remaining in his current deal with the Gunners and a season to forget for his club, Alexis Sanchez has been stalling on a new contract with Arsenal and it is becoming increasingly likely that Sanchez will leave Arsenal at the end of the season.
With no sign of an extension in sight, rumours keep flying around and the latest one has it that the Chilean has already agreed on a move away from Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger insisted that Sanchez would not be sold to Premier League rivals but, according to Italian journalist Matteo Pedrosi, the Frenchman will not have to worry about it as Sanchez gave nod to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich and is set to move to Allianz Arena in the summer.
Pedrosi and Calciomercato claim that the Bavarians have agreed on personal details with the Chilean and are now looking to open talks with the Premier League club as they look to secure a deal even before the transfer window has officially been opened.
Former Barcelona man has arguably been the best player for Arsenal during what has been a thoroughly disappointing season.
Gunners appear to be set to finish the season out of the top-four for the first time in Arsene Wenger’s reign, and with another humiliating European campaign all eyes will be pointed towards the FA Cup which remains Gunners’ only chance to win a trophy this year.
Arsenal play Premier League champions on Saturday afternoon in a match that will be of great significance for both sides.
Chelsea re keen to wrap up the double as pressure keeps piling on Arsenal and Gunners will hope Sanchez will be able to lead the way once again after reaching an important milestone in the Premier League.
The Chilean forward has become the first Arsenal player to bag 20 or more goals in a Premier League season since Robert van Persie as he grabbed a goal and an assist in the win at Stoke which helped Arsenal keep the pressure on top four.
Gunners continue to push towards the European places and will face Sunderland on Tuesday night in effort to pile more pressure on Manchester City and Liverpool.
Arsenal are given 2/5 betting odds to claim a HT/FT win over relegated Black Cats.
