Alexis Sanchez Arsenal star wants Chelsea move

Arsenal do not want to sell to a Premier League rival which may strengthen the hand of PSG or Juventus or other foreign suitors - including several Chinese clubs.

Sanchez, along with teammate Mesut Ozil, is out of contract after next season, and the uncertainty regarding the future of manager Arsene Wenger is believed to have complicated their returns.

The Chilean ace has entered the final 18 months of his contract and speculation is rife that he could leave in the summer, with Chelsea tipped to make a move.

The Chilean is out of contract in 2018 and looks no closer to signing an extension, which will leave Arsenal at risk of losing him for free in a year if they do not find a buyer in the coming window.

"Sanchez still has one and a half years left on his contract".

This line of storms looks to move into the Piedmont by late afternoon into the early evening hours between 3pm and 7pm. There is also a risk for severe thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening, according to a Hazardous Weather Outlook.

Reports suggest Sanchez, who is tied into a deal at Arsenal until the summer of 2019, is keen on completing a controversial switch to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.

"I don't see what suddenly all that debate is about", he said.

"They may have no qualms in selling him to Chelsea". Johnson reported then that Patrick Kluivert, PSG's director of football, was considering "some big names" as summer transfer targets, but with regards to Sanchez, how he performed during the run-in would dictate the club's decision.

The Chile global is yet to commit to signing a new deal with the Gunners, with less than 18 months remaining on his current deal.

"People say, "Oh well, they won't sell to Chelsea", but they sold Robin van Persie to Manchester United so they won't be fussed about that". "It's awful how Arsenal can let a player of that talent run the years down on his contract".
