Arsenal to make big Alexis Sanchez push

Arsenal to make big Alexis Sanchez push

The gunners this summer could gain for their country of about 50 million euros, but for the sake of returning to the Champions League refused to sell the player and risk losing him for free.

According to a report by The Sun, Arsenal are determined to retain Alexis Sanchez beyond the transfer window and have offered him a new £300,000-a-week contract to ward off the likes of Manchester City and PSG.

Mahrez has informed the Foxes of his desire to leave the club after they failed spectacularly to defend their Premier League crown last term, but Wenger insisted that rumours stating that he would acquire the 25-year-old's signature were always wide of the mark. "Maybe, yes he has the opposite problem [to Arsenal] but if you look at the number of players that are out on loan, they can call a few back".

Ozil and fellow midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also out of contract at the end of the season, and offers of more than £50m for either of them or Sanchez would test Wenger's resolve to keep hold of them.

Real Madrid and Manchester City have been informed that Kylian Mbappe wants to join Paris Saint-Germain this summer. But ex-Monaco defender Abidal told BBC World Service Sport's World Football programme: "It's not the time to move".

Arsene Wenger has ruled out a summer move for Leicester City midfielder Riyad Mahrez, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal since last summer.

"He's an Arsenal player in the short term".

Arsenal are on the verge of securing a bumper new deal for their star playmaker Mesut Ozil.

A poor start to the season has severely hampered Arsenal's ambitions over the past seven seasons, winning just once with three draws and as many defeats. The French coach is keen to strengthen the squad and confirmed that they are open to further additions, but it is likely to happen only after they trim the senior squad, which already consists of 33 players.
