The Mirror, via John Cross, report that Alexis Sanchez has agreed a new deal with the club which will keep him in London until 2020.
The Chilean forward has been a huge success since joining the club last summer from Barcelona, with 25 goals in his debut season including a cracker in the 4-0 FA Cup final win over Aston Villa. The 26 year old is now in the peak years of his career, and it seems as if the club are making sure he spends them with the Gunners.
The news comes on the back of other reports about Mesut Ozil’s future with Arsene Wenger similarly keen to ensure the German international remains at the Emirates for his best years.
Sanchez has scored 7 Arsenal goals so far this season, but has looked a little fatigued in recent weeks, a situation that won’t be helped by playing two internationals in the last week.
However, perhaps the boost of a new deal will see him come back to life having not netted since opening the scoring against Watford a month ago.
