The news for Arsenal over Alexis Sanchez just keeps getting worse

Chelsea appear to be attracting the attention of Alexis Sanchez, after the South American declared that he would love to remain in London, but with a team that is winning trophies.

Although Sanchez has stated his desire to finish his current contract at Arsenal, he has recently been linked with a move to Chelsea and his desire to play for a London team with a winning mentality seems to be an informal come-and-get-me plea to Chelsea.

Chelsea fits the description of a team with a winning mentality, they are 19 points clear of Arsenal, and are still competing in the FA Cup.

The Colombian stated that he desires to finish his current contract with the Gunners, which runs out in 2018. However, his is unlikely to sign an extension to that deal.

His representatives and the club have seen contract negotiations stalled after the player demand for £250,000 per week to stay at the London club.

Arsenal would prefer to sell Sanchez to a team outside the Premier League, however, if the South American is offered his desired wage, he might just move to Chelsea.
