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.
Monaco are reportedly ready to make an offer worth £45 million to Arsenal for star striker Alexis Sanchez, as they are keen to sign a top class player this summer with Kylian Mbappe expected to leave.
According to The Sun, Monaco believe Arsenal could be tempted to sell the Chile international, to avoid losing him for free next summer, when his current in its final year.
The French champions are financially buoyant, having already cashed in on Bernardo Silva, Benjamin Mendy and Tiemoue Bakayoko and with Mbappe widely tipped to leave.
The club are reportedly ready to offer Sanchez a tax-free salary of £300,000-per-week, and feel he could be convinced to move to the club for at least a season.
Sanchez has this week resumed training at the Emirates, with Arsene Wenger again reasserting his decision not to sell him this summer.
While Manchester City are believed to still be interested, no offers have yet been made, and PSG’s capture of Neymar suggests their reported interest in Sanchez may have been withdrawn.
Although it’s still uncertain if Sanchez will remain at Arsenal, it would certainly be embarrassing for Wenger in particular, if he does leave, having insisting time and time again he is not leaving.
While Arsenal would prefer to sell outside the country, if they are to allow Sanchez to leave, an offer of £45m seems unlikely to be enough to convince them, and it remains to be seen if the Chilean would be convinced on a move by Monaco, despite the huge wages on offer.
