Mesut Ozil, who also has six months left on his deal and Arsene Wenger has frequently insisted he is hopeful they can tempt the German into renewing his contract by offering him a £275,000-a-week ($367,000) deal.
Arsenal legend Ian Wright recently slammed his former club for allowing their two best players to run down their contracts.
“It is terrible business for Arsenal, for a club that is accused of being a business to allow two players like that to run their contracts down,” Wright said.
“Sanchez on top form is easily a £100m player. Ozil on top form is worth £70m to £80m. Arsenal are letting that go. It is disgusting business on the management side for Arsenal.
“How are you going to sell players like that in January for £25m? It is like people are laughing at you. Manchester City could find £25m in the car seat or something. And you’re going to get Sanchez for that kind of money? For it to get to this point where they can be offered that kind of money. And why would you offer £60m when they are free in a few months?”
