Arsenal won their opening game of the season vs Leicester but after that, they suffered a shocking defeat at the hands of Stoke City away from home.

The North Londoners are still looking to strengthen their squad but more importantly, they want star players to stay at the club as well.

Recently, we covered a report (via Mirror), claiming that Arsenal are prepared to sell Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea after the midfielder turned down a new contract.

Today, Daily Star have come up with an exclusive report that the 24-year-old England international is still interested in staying with the Gunners but he is only ready to agree a four year deal worth 40 million pounds ($51.5million).

The British source have also claimed that star playmaker Alexis Sanchez has also snubbed a contract offer from the Gunners and wants a mammoth fee of $20.8million-a-year to stay.

Sanchez was Arsenal’s best player last season but does he deserve to earn the above mentioned wages?

On the other hand, Arsenal already have more than a few quality midfielders in the squad and Alex has only broken into first team this season. In your opinion, should the Gunners sell him?
