Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez seems to be getting more frustrated with his time at Arsenal and is desperate to leave the club.

With just a year and a few months left on his contract, the Chilean is adamant that he wants to leave the Gunners. However, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger just last week revealed that he’d keep Sanchez by all means, whether or not he signs a new contract.

He said: “If he doesn’t sign a new deal, will I make him stay? Yes.

“Would I rather keep him than sell him to a Premier League rival? Yes. I don’t think you would sell him to any Premier League club, that is for sure. Why not? The question is more why would you sell him to another Premier League club? You want to be as strong as you can be and not strengthen the other teams.

“I think he will sign and stay because, first of all, he is happy here. His desire is to stay. That is what I deeply believe. The disagreements are purely contractual – not on the desire. Both parties have the desire to find an agreement, so I think it will happen.”

However, a report by the Telegraph claim the Arsenal star finds a move to Stamford Bridge appealing, and he is “attracted” to the style of Blues manager Antonio Conte.

He has so far failed to reach an agreement, and in the summer the 28-year-old will have just a year left on his deal and leaves Arsenal with the prospect of losing him on a free transfer in 2018.

Recent reports suggest he has put Chelsea as his number one club he’d want to join at the end of the season.
