Sanchez wants to leave Arsenal for Champions League football

Arsenal's star forward Alexis Sanchez has revealed his desire to play in the Champions League, indirectly hinting that he might move out of the London-based football club this season.

"I want to play in the Champions League", Sanchez told Canal 13. I have now made up my mind, I am now waiting on Arsenal to give me their decision.

"I do [think they'll struggle], Arsenal need to be in the top four", the ex-England worldwide, 49, added.

However Arsene Wenger is determined to hold the club's top scorer during last season to his contract. "Alexis tells the club he wants to leave". "Of course (he will stay).There is not a lot to resolve at the moment with the player", Wenger said.

World Cup victor Mertesacker said: "He needs a break now".

"For now I'm at Arsenal, my contract ends next year". "I've dreamt about it since I was a kid".

The former Barcelona star is due to link up with his team-mates on July 30 after his post-Confederations Cup break draws to a close. You can not find those everywhere.

Mertesacker said Sanchez needs to be left alone, to make a decision on his future.

Mertesacker is entering the final season of his playing career at Arsenal as he prepares to become the club's academy manager next year and the German is eager to finish on a high.

"He has shown them and we have embraced him". The Chilean global had a hand in double the amount of goals for his side, and is by far and away the team's most valuable player.

"What we know now is that Mbappe is over £100m and after that it's free to imagine what you want".

With Arsenal in the Europa League, this looks like a good way for Alexis Sanchez to push for an exit from the Emirates.
