Arsenal have been handed a major boost in their quest to keep Chilean international Alexis Sanchez, after the players admits he’s comfortable with Arsenal and wants to win new trophies for the fans.
Sanchez’s current contract at the Emirates expires in 2018 and the playmaker is believed to want a bumper pay rise to pen a new deal.
Arsenal fans were left worrying about the forward’s future after he was seen throwing a tantrum during Arsenal’s 4-0 win over Swansea City.
Sanchez, though, has said he is comfortable in north London and hopes to deliver Arsenal fans a title at the end of the season.
The 28-year-old told Arsenal Player: ‘I definitely feel like an important player and my team-mates let me know every day.
‘I try to prove I am an important player every day and game after game. I believe we have the players and the quality to win many things.
‘I feel really happy and comfortable at the club. I want to give the fans a new title.’
Sanchez, who has scored 43 goals in 86 league games since joining Arsenal in 2014, added: ‘We always get our fans support in the thick and thin.
‘We must win the Premier League or Champions League for them.’
