Alexis Sanchez: Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger wants forward to stay

From BBC - January 10, 2018

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says his decision to name Alexis Sanchez on the bench against Chelsea on Wednesday had nothing to do with transfer speculation, and reiterated his desire for the forward to stay at the club.

The Chilean, out of contract in June, came on in the second half of the 0-0 Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg draw.

Sanchez has been linked with a January move to Manchester City.
