A report from Daily Star claims that Arsenal are reportedly ready to seal deal worth £275,000-a-week for Alexis Sanchez.
The 28-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to depart from the Emirates Stadium since the opening of the summer transfer window.
And the Chile international fueled the report when he visited his homeland over the weekend by claiming he want to play in the Champions League next season.
He said as quoted by the Sun, that:
“My idea is to play and win the Champions League, it is a dream I have had since I was little.
“The truth is that the decision doesn’t depend on me. I have made my decision, but now we wait for a response from Arsenal. It depends on them; I have to wait to know what they want.”
Manager Arsene Wenger are desperate to keep the former Barcelona star as they are closing in returning to England for next season campaign.
It thought that Arsenal are ready to pay Sanchez as much as £275,000-a-week to make sure he remains at the club.
Sanchez’s performance last season was nothing short brilliant last season as he managed to net 24-goals in 38 appearances and also scored one goal in Arsenal’s FA Cup final victory against Chelsea.
