Arsenal star could leave this summer after showdown talks

Arsenal are set to hold talks with star man Alexis Sanchez amid interest from several of Europe’s elite sides, according to the Mirror.

Sanchez has been recently linked with a move away from the Emirates, with the Chile international frustrated at the Gunners’ lack of progress during his two years at the club.

His frustrations have led Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich and Italian champions Juventus into monitoring the situation, fuelling speculation that Sanchez could leave in the summer.

However, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger wants to keep the Chilean, and will hold talks to see whether he will extend his current deal.

If the former Barcelona attacker does not make a commitment, the Gunners hierarchy may be forced to sell him in order to not lose Sanchez for free once his contract expires.

Sanchez’s departure could open the door for the likes of Borussia Dortmund star Henrikh Mkhitaryan or Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez to come in as his replacement.
