Arsenal are preparing to offer Alexis Sanchez a new deal, according to Inside Futbol.
The winger is one of the team’s best players and has won the hearts of the fans with his superb performances since moving to the club in 2014.
He was recently a subject of interest from Serie A Champions Juventus but Arsenal knocked back the Italian Champions advances, insisting the winger is not for sale.
According to Italian media outlet Gazetta Dello Sport, Arsenal are ready to offer the winger a new contract which will see him remain at the club until 2020. His current deal expires in 2018 but Wenger is keen for him to stay beyond that time, it is believed the club would tempt him into signing a new deal by increasing his salary to about €12m a year.
The striker is currently on holiday after his participation in this summer’s Copa America where he helped the Chile national team to the title. It is believed the club would offer him the new contract once he returns from holiday.
Arsene Wenger is not prepared to lose any of his star player ahead of a crucial season and Alexis is expected to play an important part in the club’s title race next term.
The winger who joined from Barcelona for £32m has scored 42 goals in 93 appearances since becoming a Gunner.
