Arsenal Lengend Sol Campbell has made a bold statement saying he is confident of Alexis Sanchez signing a contract extension with the Gunners.
Campbell hopes that the Arsenal board can get a deal done with their star player as the team can’t afford to let go of some of their key stars if truly they want to push for a major title race this season.
The Chilean international has only 18 months left on his current deal and is yet to sign a new deal with Arsenal with reports claiming he wants an improve weekly wage to the 140k per week he current earns.
Campbell told Premier League Daily, asquoted by Sky Sports:
“I think there are a lot of things behind the scenes and it’s all about cutting a deal, getting the deal done and sometimes compromising,” Campbell toldPremier League Daily.
“Depending on how far the compromises go, it could be him compromising, it could be the club compromising, who knows? But I think everyone is out there to get the deal done.
“That fantastic penalty reminds me of Thierry Henry, he used to score a lot of those type of penalties.
“But he [Sanchez] has comes in, his attitude is tremendous, he is one of the players that I have seen in the last five to 10 years that has come into Arsenal and bang, straight away he is working, he’s scoring goals and he’s into it.
“He’s not taken six months to get going or one year to get going at the club, so that should keep him in good stead. Hopefully the board come and get the deal done.”
