Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez insists he is happy in London but fuelled speculation linking him with Chelsea by warning he wants to play for a successful team with a “winning mentality.”
Sanchez has been heavily linked with a move away from the Emirates in the summer and was recently demoted to the bench by the Gunners for their 3-1 defeat to Liverpool.
The Chile international has 15 months remaining on his current contract and Arsene Wenger’s side are unwilling to let him leave the Emirates for less than £50m, according to the London Evening Standard.
However, during a brief promotional event in his homeland, Sanchez suggested he is happy to stay in London, but left it open to interpretation as to which club that will be with.
Sanchez, who is currently on international duty and scored during Chile’s 3-0 World Cup qualifying win over Venezuelaon Tuesday, told the Publimetro: “I am happy in London and hope to finish my contract there.
“I’d like to stay in the city but with a team that is winning things, that has a winning mentality.
“I’m 28 years old, I still have a lot of years ahead of me. I am a player who looks after himself.”
Sanchez is reportedly on the Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich’s radar. The uncertainty over his Arsenal future runs in tandem with the confusion over manager Wenger, who is yet to announce whether he will agree to the new two-year deal, which is reportedly currently on the table.
