Former Gunner Alexander Hleb has urged Alexis Sanchez to stay at the Emirates.
Sanchez is expected to leave Arsenal at the end of the season, having refused to sign a new deal with the club.
Paris Saint Germain, Manchester City and AC Milan are all believed to be interested in the forward and each of these clubs are willing to splash the cash to sign the Chilean.
However, Hleb has urged Sanchez to stay at Arsenal and continue to play a key role for the team.
“Arsenal found themselves in a very difficult situation with Sanchez,” Hleb told the Independent, as quoted by Goal.
“On one side, if he doesn’t want to play for the team you could say it would have been better to sell him for good money.
“On the other hand, he’s such an important player for Arsenal and is a leader. I have seen him play this season and he still
fights, give his best and scores goals.
“He looked professional rather than angry that he didn’t get his move to Manchester City.
“I think he will wait until the winter, see how the team are playing and maybe sign a new contract.
“Why not stay at Arsenal? It’s a great club with huge tradition, great fans and Arsene Wenger as the manager. They can achieve things. Why leave?”
Sanchez is Arsenal’s main man but his quest for titles is pushing him towards the exit door. For personal reasons, he isn’t satisfied with the club’s ambition to challenge for titles and is set to leave the club for free when his contract expires at the end of the season.
