Alexis Sanchez yet again showed his quality as he scored a late extra time goal that helped Arsenal beat Manchester City 2-1 and stake a claim in the finals of the FA Cup.

Chelsea are highly interested in signing the Chilean who will be in the last year of his contract next season.

Sanchez has revealed his intentions to leave Arsenal, but Arsene Wenger has vowed to keep him at Arsenal till the end of his contract.

“Alexis Sanchez was like the team,” Wenger said after taking Arsenal to a record 20th FA Cup final. “He had problems to start and became stronger and stronger.

“He is an animal, always ready to kill the opponent. He will never give up. He will be here next year because he has a contract and hopefully we will manage to extend.”
