Alexis Sanchez seems to be biding his time at Arsenal as he prepares to leave the club either in January or at the end of the 2017-18 campaign.
One of the hottest forwards in Europe will be out of contract at the end of this season, and it does appear that Arsenal have no hope of convincing him to sign fresh terms.
Sanchez is yet to score in five Premier League appearances for Arsenal this season after a stop-start few weeks, but there is no doubting his importance to the team.
On Sunday, Arsenal’s official Twitter account posted a quote from Sanchez which revealed that the Chile international enjoys playing alongside Alexandre Lacazette in the final third of the field.
As expected, a number of the club’s supporters filled up the response section, with many calling for the former Barcelona attacker to forget his troubles and sign a new deal.
Stranger things have happened in the world of football, but it does seem unlikely that the Manchester City target, who is rated at £58.5m by transfermarkt.co.uk, will make a U-turn on his future.
