Sanchez hints at Gunners exit

16 July 2017 04:28:03 EST

Chile international Alexis Sanchez looks set to leave Arsenal after revealing that he wants to play in the Champions League.

The Gunners will only be involved in the Europa League in 2017/18 after finishing fifth in the Premier League last term.

It will be the first time in 20 years that Arsene Wenger's side will not be involved in the Champions League, which Barcelona are 6/1 to win.

Sanchez scored 24 Premier League goals for Arsenal last term before helping Chile reach the Confederations Cup final.

The 28-year-old, who still has a year remaining on his Emirates Stadium contract, said: "I want to play in the Champions League. The decision does not depend on me, I have to wait for Arsenal."

However, Wenger is refusing to accept that Sanchez will be leaving the club, saying after Arsenal's pre-season win over Western Sydney Wanderers that he was "positive" about new contract talks with the player.

Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain have all been linked with Sanchez this summer.

Arsenal can be backed at 66/1 to win the Premier League title in 2017/18 while they are 6/1 to lift the Europa League.
