Arsenal are in for a battle to convince Alexis Sanchez to stay at Arsenal as he is reportedly frustrated with life at the Emirates. The 27-year-old had stormed out of the field after being substituted against Norwich last weekend without acknowledging Arsene Wenger and the manager is believed to be miffed.
The Telegraph reports that Sanchez had actually left the stadium in haste after the confrontation, and is frustrated at not being able to perform well. The Chilean still has two years left in his current contract but the Gunners have a battle on their hands to convince him to stay in north London, especially with a lot of clubs interested in his signature.
Bayern Munich could be potential suitors for the Chilean while there have been suggestions that Manchester City could also move for the player with the impending arrival of Pep Gaurdiola. Sanchez has previously played with Gaurdiola in Barcelona and could look to renew that relationship when he takes over in the Premier League.
Sanchez is unlikely to be left out against City on Sunday, 8 May but there could be a long discussion with the player over his priorities once the season comes to a close. Wenger is already looking to make a few major changes in the summer and the recent spat with Sanchez could force him to look at other options.
Wenger has reportedly made N'Golo Kante his top target for the summer and could also choose to invest in the market to sign a defender and a forward. The Gunners have been disappointed at their lack of goals this season, especially with both Olivier Giroud and Sanchez hitting a bad patch. Meanwhile, Theo Walcott's situation at the club is also under scrutiny after the England international lost his place in the starting XI.
