Wright urges Sanchez to leave Arsenal

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has suggested that it would be better for Alexis Sanchez to leave Arsenal following the Gunners' failure to challenge for trophies, BBC reports.

Wright, who is currently Arsenal’s second top goal-scorer of all time, has been a long-time supporter of Wenger but has changed his tune in the last couple of years.

“It’s not looking good for Arsenal and him.” he said. “I believe his agent is probably on the phone to people now.

“These things happen. It’s when you are united as a team that it doesn’t come out.”

Sanchez is Arsenal’s top performer this season with 26 goals in 26 matches, proving it yet again upon his involvement into the game against Liverpool, assisting Danny Welbeck for Arsenal’s sole goal.

“It’s a shame simply because he is Arsenal’s best player. He is a player that Arsenal need desperately to be there. I’m not sure if money is going to keep him there at the moment because if he’s storming out of training and not playing in games…

“It doesn’t seem to be a problem for him when he does come on because he still performs to the best of his ability. If I was him, I’d probably want to leave as well because what’s happening with Arsenal right now is not what he came to Arsenal for, especially not being in the top four.

“Everything points towards that he’s unsettled, he’s unhappy, and it seems to me like he wants to go.”

Arsenal are facing Bayern Munich on an impossible mission to neutralise a 5-1 deficit at the Emirates tomorrow, and rumours suggest that Wenger might leave Sanchez on the bench.
