Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes Alexis Sanchez is worth the £400,000-a-week new deal he is demanding.
The Chilean is reportedly angling for a move away from the Emirates and has informed club bosses he will only sign a new deal if he is made the highest paid player in the Premier League.
The club has shown it’s commitment to the player by offering him a new deal worth £300,000 per week, only to see it rejected.
And Wright has urged the club to pay Sanchez whatever he wants. The former Arsenal striker made this claim in a discussion with the Mirror’s John Cross on twitter.
He said, as quoted by The Daily Cannon:
“My friend if we go through all these years to get top players then lose one over money @johncrossmirror . He’s worth it”.
Sanchez was Arsenal’s best player last season and proved his importance to us time after time but his demands have made it difficult to reach an agreement.
Arsenal have already done enough to break it’s salary structure to offer the winger a £300,000 per week salary but he has so far refused to shift grounds.
It does seem to me that he is hell bent on leaving and even if we decide to offer him what he is demanding, he may not want to stay.
