Arsenal Offer Sanchez New £300000 A Week Deal

Arsene Wenger has conceded Arsenal are not "super optimistic" of star man Alexis Sanchez signing a new contract.

Sanchez, who will miss Arsenal's opening Premier League match of the season against Leicester on Friday after suffering an abdominal strain in training, has been reportedly linked with a move away from the Emirates during the summer transfer window, with PSG and Manchester City potential suitors.

With the 2017-2018 season kicking off tomorrow at the Emirates against Leicester City and with the German yet to sign a contract as he enters the previous year on his contract, he (Ozil) does have a big decision to make and the events of this season could prove vital in his decision making.

Now, Wenger's latest comments have done little to ease the minds of fans over his long-term future by only confirming he will remain in the short-term. Last season, he was the best star at the club.

Arsenal has not given up on agreeing a new deal with Sanchez, but according to SFR Sport, Wenger has said he is not confident that the 28-year-old will extend his contract.

Alexis [Sanchez] will not be available for example, so I can not go into the game with too many uncertainties.

Then, Ozil would go on and become the third most expensive signing in British football history, behind Fernando Torres, who joined Chelsea from Liverpool for £50m in 2011, and Carlos Tevez, who cost Manchester City £45m. "We have respect for Arsenal. excellent relations".

And Merson thinks the Arsenal fans are firmly behind the Arsenal manager's firm stance.

That gives Arsenal very little negotiating power and his exit is now nearly inevitable.
