Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has dismissed transfer speculation linking him with an exit from the club as he remains focused on winning a Premier League title.
The 27-year-old joined the club from Barcelona in 2014, and has developed into a pivotal part of Arsene Wenger’s side as they continue to push for trophies.
Having already led the club to an FA Cup success in his first season, the Chilean international will hope to return from injury this weekend to give his side a welcome boost against Chelsea.
“I am very happy at Arsenal and I’m not thinking about leaving,” Sanchez said in the Sunday Mirror.
“The unity here between fans, club and players is enormous and the supporters have been fantastic. We suffer the defeats and enjoy the victories together.”
According to Wenger, the two parties will enter into renewal talks at the end of the season, but there is plenty to be focused on in the coming months as the Gunners look to compete on various fronts.
Having drawn their last two league games, they will be desperate to get back to winning ways against Chelsea, as the Blues continue to languish in the bottom half of the table after a disastrous start to the campaign.
Nevertheless, with both Leicester City and Manchester City leapfrogging Arsenal on Saturday, the pressure is on Wenger’s side to respond. With Sanchez and Mesut Ozil both likely to feature after the German international was also missing against Stoke City last time out, the hosts will certainly be confident in their ability to secure all three points.
