Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger rested Sanchez in last Premier League game. The 28 year old is set to start for the Gunners in return leg. Sanchez scored the only goal scored in first leg against Bayern Munich.
Alexis Sanchez and his team player Mesut Ozil have refused to sign new contracts, and it appears Wenger is taking a hardline approach with both players. Some other top Premier League with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City are ready to break bank balance to sign the Chilean forward.
So far in this season Sanchez have scored 17 goals in 26 appearances and provided 9 assists. No doubt, he is one of the most prolific player at the Emirates stadium, but do he really need to leave Arsenal?
