Clearly, Arsenal would prefer to sell Alexis to PSG, who have the money and have been looking for a "Galactico" type player since Zlatan Ibrahimovic joined Manchester United.

Beleaguered Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said on Tuesday a top four finish and a place in the Champions League is a realistic target for his stuttering team. The pair have each refused to sign long-term contract extensions, with Wenger saying two weeks ago that discussions are on hold until the summer.

Arsenal could be dealt a big blow as their main star, Alexis Sanchez is reportedly favouring a move to their fierce rivals, Chelsea in the summer.

"You could watch a game between Rochdale and Bury and come away thinking, 'That guy could play in the Premier League.' But he'll do that twice a season and that's why he is playing at Rochdale".

He has been at the heart of most of the good the Gunners have put on display, but also the bad.

It's the news every Arsenal fan has been dreading.

51 - Arsenal have won the identical variety of points after 28 matches this season as they did in 2015/16, with the same record (W15 D6 L7).

"There's about eight of the players with contracts running down and I think it is incredible they are in this scenario". He wants to win the championship and that is what everybody wants.

"For example, [on Saturday] there is a derby against Crystal Palace".

"It is respect for the (other) club and for my players".

"If you listen to (Manchester City manager) Pep Guardiola, he said the other day that to achieve the top four in England is a trophy because it's so hard", said the Frenchman.

"We have to check the situation in the right way".

"That will be very important, but I don't see any problems about this".
