Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
Chelsea could make a move for Alexis Sanchez at the end of the season, according to reports.
Sanchez is in talks with Arsenal over a contract extension but reports are claiming negotiations between the club and the Chilean have stalled because the player is demanding a salary package worth about £300,000 a week.
Arsenal are only willing to pay around £200,000 a week but the player is reluctant to reduce his demands.
The forward will have just one year left in his contract at the end of the season and there are fears among Arsenal fans that he could be tempted to leave when another top club comes calling.
And according to the Daily Star Chelsea are one of those clubs that could make a move for the Chilean.
The Blues are reportedly willing to sell Diego Costa next summer and they see Sanchez as a perfect replacement for the Spaniard.
Chelsea are not the only Premier League club being linked with the Chilean as Manchester City are also said to be interested but it remains to be seen if a move to the table toppers will appeal to the Chilean.
Arsenal remain confident that Sanchez will sign a new deal but should that not happen, a move to Chelsea will break the hearts of many Gooners.
I’m sure Wenger would resist selling sanchez to Chelsea or any rival club and could even decide to sell him to a club abroad for a cheaper fee if he doesn’t sign a new deal.
