Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
After failing to qualify for the next season’s UEFA Champions League, Arsenal must sign quality stars to reinforce their team in the summer transfer window.
More importantly, the Gunners must hold on to their top stars who are part of the current team and Alexis Sanchez is one of them.
The South American playmaker has been Arsenal’s best player in the current campaign. In 50 games, he has directly contributed in no fewer than 48 goals (29 goals and 19 assists). Can he score against Chelsea today?
The North Londoners cannot really afford to lose him and the latest reports suggest that they have offered him a huge fresh contract.
According to Daily Mail, Arsenal have offered Sanchez a deal worth £270,000-a-week (£14million-a-year) with incentives that will take the figure close to £300,000-a-week.
The 28-year-old star’s current deal with the Gunners will expire next year and at the moment, he is only getting (Mirror) £130,000-a-week. After top performances, he surely deserves to double his wages but there is another dilemma as well.
Alexis is one of the best attackers in the world and deserves to play Champions League football and it will not be shocking if he opts to leave the Emirates only to play in the Europe’s elite tournament next season.
As per the provided Daily Mail link, the likes of Bayern Munich, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are interested in hiring the services of the former Barcelona star.
