Arsenal set to offer bumper contract deal to Sanchez

Arsenal set to offer bumper contract deal to Sanchez

Speaking to Sky Sports, Merson admits he would be happier if the 28-year-old moved overseas instead of - just like van Persie - joining and therefore bolstering a Premier League rival. In the interim, the Gunners have finished enthusiasm for Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez.

Mail Online reports that the improved offer will see Sanchez earn £300,000-a-week at the Emirates if he puts pen to paper.

The Gunners will potentially lose Sanchez on a free in a year's time, along with other key players like Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but Wenger believes that it is an ideal situation to be in as the players will seek to prove their worth in the final year of their contracts.

Arsenal would be willing to let Alexis Sanchez leave the club but would rather he joined Paris Saint-Germain than Manchester City, says Paul Merson.

It's little wonder some of Europe's elite might look to poach the Chile global after Arsenal finished fifth in the Premier League last season.

In fact, Weapons store have declined to consider offering the forward, who hit 24 objectives in 38 group recreations last term, a count bettered just by Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku in the English best flight.Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain might want to sign the Chile forward, however Arsene Wenger is developing progressively sure he will remain. Now, will we manage to extend his contract?

"Whether we manage to get him to sign an extension or not - we have so far not been able to". It's not like they are going to sell him for £50m and take £200 of everybody's season tickets because we've sold our best player.
