Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez should be left alone to decide his future, captain Per Mertesacker has said.

The 28-year-old's future with the Gunners has been in doubt, with Manchester City and Bayern Munich keen to sign him this summer while discussions over a new deal at the club have made little progress.

Manager Arsene Wenger believes Sanchez will stay and said on Saturday he had held "positive" talks with the player, who is currently in his hometown of Tocopilla in Chile on his post-season holiday, via text message.

Sanchez was quoted by Chile's Radio Sport that his dream is to win the Champions League - a competition Arsenal will not be in next season after they finished fifth in the Premier League.

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez needs time and space to decide his future, according to captain Per Mertesacker. Sanchez , 28, is into the final year of his contract and is linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium.

Mertesacker, who will retire at the end of the season and take up a coaching role at the Emirates Stadium, says Sanchez needs to be given time to make his decision.

"He needs a break now," the German defender said. "He needs to relax. He has done a lot for us. He played almost every game last season and then the Confederations Cup.

"You need to leave him alone to make up his mind what he wants to do. It's his decision. If he feels good, comfortable, he can play with freedom."

Mertesacker is entering the final season of his playing career at Arsenal as he prepares to become the club's academy manager next year and the German is eager to finish on a high.

"I want to make the most of it," he told the Arsenal website. "I want to stay injury free, be an option for the manager to get picked every weekend. That's the target. To make it as enjoyable as I can.

"As long as I am there I want to play and contribute."

Alexis Sanchez believes Arsenal will sell him to Man City .
Alexis Sanchez is keen to join Manchester City this summer and the Chilean believes that Arsenal will give in and sell him to their Premier League rivals, the Daily Mail reports. Arsenal are reluctant to sell their star player to another Premier League team and will reportedly not listen to any offers from Manchester City. Sanchez has just one year left on his contract at the Emirates and with the forward stalling over a new deal, Arsenal could be set to lose him for free next summer if they do not sell him this summer. Pep Guardiola and Alexis Sanchez worked together at Barcelona and both are keen to reunite with each other at Manchester City ahead of the new season, with Sanchez having already expressed his desire to play Champions League football next term. Sanchez’s representatives are said to be confident that the Gunners will sell the forward this summer to avoid losing him for free at the end of next season, despite Arsenal remaining adamant that they won’t. Manchester City are willing to pay over £50 million for Sanchez, but as of January 1st, Sanchez can begin negotiations with any overseas club over a free transfer. Sanchez has already rejected a new contract offer from Arsenal that would see him earn £275,000 a week, with the forward holding out for a contract that would see him earn £300,000 a week.
