The forward appears set to leave the Gunners after rejecting a new deal… here’s where he could end up
ALEXIS SANCHEZ’S remains unclear with the Chilean yet to agree a new deal with Arsenal.
Former Barcelona striker Sanchez has cut a frustrated figure on the pitch in recent months as the Gunners have stuttered.
The lack of a Premier League title challenge appears to be playing heavily on the star’s mind as he weighs up his next options.

And he is not short of admirers as the queue of clubs wanting to sign him grows bigger every week.
Here’s everything we know about his current situation.
Will Alexis Sanchez definitely leave Arsenal?
Alexis Sanchez is under contract at Arsenal until June 2018.
He has yet to agree terms on a new deal with the Gunners, which means he could leave for nothing next year.
That could force the north London side to cash in this summer.
Which clubs are favourites to sign him?
The Blues are the 2/1 favourites to be Alexis Sanchez’s next club, according to Ladbrokes.
Antonio Conte has been a keen admirer of the Arsenal striker throughout the season and owner Roman Abramovich may be tempted to make a cut price move if a new contract is not agreed.
Sanchez’s comments about playing in a winning team in London further indicate that he may consider Stamford Bridge a step up from the Emirates.
16 years after Sol Campbell crossed the North London divide, Tottenham would well and truly have revenge if Arsenal’s star man moved in the opposite direction.
And Spurs are now second favourites to sign the Chilean at just 3/1.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Sanchez wants a capital city club with a winning mentality and now that Spurs are back in the title race, the odds of a sensational switch across the North London divide are shortening by the minute.
“Should Spurs make up further ground on Chelsea while Arsenal flounder outside of the top four, they could soon become favourites for the Chilean’s signature.”
The French side will be looking to revamp their squad following their humiliating 6-1 Champions League exit against Barcelona.
With the Qatari royal family at the helm they are one of Europe’s richest clubs and have reportedly offered the Chilean £300,000-a-week.
PSG come in at 4/1 third favourites to secure Sanchez’s signature.
If Sanchez wants a genuine chance of winning titles, there could be few better places to do it than at a club who are set to win the league for the 6th consecutive time.
As 2015 Champions League finalists, Juventus would also give Sanchez a far better chance of European glory than most, if not all, English clubs.
The striker already knows his way around Serie A, having spent five seasons at Udinese.
He is 6/1 to be wearing black and white again at Juve.
No club in Europe can compete with the pay packet offered by the Chinese Super League.
Fellow Chilean Manuel Pellegrini reportedly offered Sanchez £500,000-a-week to join him at Hebei China Fortune.
Speculation was rife in January that the Arsenal man would move to the Far East, but it has since died down.
What has Alexis Sanchez said about his future?
Sanchez recently revealed his happiness at living in the capital, but sparked interest from Chelsea by saying he wants to play in a winning side.
He said during the recent international break: “I am happy in London and I hope to finish my contract at Arsenal.
“I want to stay in a winning team and keep playing in the same city. I want to play in a team that has aspirations.
“I’m 28 years old, I still have a lot ahead of me. I am a player who takes great care of himself.”
