And with the risk of losing him for free next season Arsene Wenger ready to offer him a new bumper deal, according to the Daily Mail.

Sanchez ready to leave the Arsenal in search of major silverware, however, doubling his salary could see him remain at Emirates Stadium for the next season.

The 28-year-old forward has been linked with moves to Man City and PSG this summer, but manager Arsene Wenger is confident that Chilean forward will stay at Emirates Stadium.
