Football journalist Henry Winter has expressed his views on the unsettled future of Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.
The 28-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Emirates stadium after being reluctant to extend his contract.
Various reports have suggested that Sanchez is eying a transfer to either Manchester City or Paris Saint-Germain where his wages are likely to be significantly increased.
And according to Winter, the Chile international is bound to say goodbye to Arsenal before the summer transfer window closes.
“I think Arsenal will finish top six, but I’d be surprised if they get into the Champions League,” Winter said
“It was great entertainment at Arsenal the other night and I know they have centre-halves to come back in but they’ve got to sort out the Sanchez situation.
“I assume he’s gonna leave in this window. Unless he is going to be 100 per cent committed what is the point of holding on to him. Are they gonna offer £300,000 a week? I’m not sure they will.
“I think maybe he looks around and thinks ok Lacazette but there’s not enough players in here who are gonna match his work rate and match his ambition and I can completely understand why he wants to leave.”
