Arsenal players keen on Alexis Sanchez stay, says defender Laurent Koscielny

Postado Mai 19, 2017

Wenger has come in for much criticism this season, as they look to be set to finish outside of the top 4 for the first time since the 1995/96 season and were knocked out of the Champions League at the Round of 16 stage at the hands of Bayern Munich.

But his form alone was not almost enough for Arsenal, who go into their last game of the season, in fifth place on the standings, one point adrift of Liverpool and three behind Manchester City.

Victory might not even be enough depending on events at Anfield, but Wenger will be keen for his charges to fulfil their side of the bargain should Liverpool slip up. Nevertheless, the fast-dwindling number of Wenger loyalists will insist that this season, which could yet see the Gunners win a third FA Cup in four years, is a rare exception to the rule that "Arsene knows best".

The former Gunners defender wrote in the Daily Mail: "The club have to work out whether they are willing to push the boat out and pay Sanchez and Ozil substantially more than anyone else".

Tottenham finished league runners-up this season but have won no silverware since the 2008 League Cup.

Manchester City beat West Bromwich Albion 3-1 to move a step closer to clinching the third place in the EPL and a guaranteed berth in the UEFA Champions League. "He is the creator of the stadium, the players and style of the club".

The 28-year-old, who scored both goals in the club's 2-0 win over Sunderland on Tuesday, to keep their top-four hopes alive, spoke of his frustrations ahead of facing Everton on Sunday.

Failure to qualify for the Champions League could see Alexis Sanchez and German worldwide Mesut Ozil leave.

On Arsenal signing big name players this summer, Sanchez added: "This is normal".

The Chilean will have only one year remaining on his current deal at the end of the season, meaning that Arsenal will need to decide whether to cash in this summer or face the prospect of losing him for free next year.
