Per Mertesacker has told Alexis Sanchez to stay at Arsenal and use his “X-factor” to help the team.
Sanchez, who is in the last year of his contract at the Emirates, is wanted by Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.
The Chilean was supposed to return to pre-season training on Sunday but is now expected to be back on Tuesday after taking to Instagram to say he is sick.
But Mertesacker said: “I think everyone wants him to stay because he’s a player with the X-factor and in the last season he has played some incredible games and he was our dominant goalscorer.”
