Alexis Sanchez’s future at the club is in doubt due to his contract demands, according to a report.
The Daily Mirror has claimed that the 27-year-0ld’s position is less certain than teammate Mesut Ozil as the Gunners try and secure their two star players to extended deals.
It is said the Chile international not only wants a big wage increase but also buy-out clause included within any new agreement.
The Gunners have entered talks with the attacking midfield duo and it is stated that the addition of fellow Germany international Shkodran Mustafi has helped with trying to keep Ozil at the club.
But it is reportedly not as certain that Sanchez will sign an extension to his current £130,000-a-week deal, which expires in the summer of 2018.
Sanchez signed for Arsenal in the summer of 2014 in a £31.7million deal from La Liga giants Barcelona.
The versatile attacker, who has spearheaded the front line in four of Arsenal’s five matches this season, has established himself as a firm fan favourite, scoring 44 goals in 98 fixtures in all competitions during his two-year stay at the club.
He has under two years left on his current contract, but Arsene Wenger will be keen to keep a player who has been a key figure in the early stages of the new campaign.
The 101-time capped Chile international has featured in five matches in all competitions this season scoring two goals and providing two assists, with the Gunners looking to end a 12-year run without a Premier League win.
