Arsenal set to make Premier League record with fresh contract deal

Alexis Sanchez & Julio Cesar

Arsenal are willing to make Alexis Sanchez the highest-paid player in the Premier League in a bid to break his contract stalemate, according to the Evening Standard.

The Chile international's future has been a talking point throughout the season due to the ongoing negotiations regarding a new contract.

'I think he has an incredible winning mentality, ' Sanchez said about the five-time Ballon d'Or victor. The excellent Sam Lee of Goal.com reports that City are increasingly confident that the Chilean will be joining the club this summer, and Pep Guardiola has already made contact with his former player to convince him to leave Arsenal and move to the Etihad.

"At this stage I'm not important, what's important is the club", he said.

"So we'll talk in the summer and we'll clear things then but for the moment, all that's important is Arsenal and not me and not any other player - it's just the club".

Mesut Ozil is set for an embarrassing U-turn on the £250,000-a-week deal he's refusing to sign with Arsenal due to a lack of interest from other clubs, reports claim.

"You can not decide who manages the club, I always said he was the most important factor in me coming here". He scored and provided an assist in a rare positive for the club in last week's 3-0 win over West Ham.

Wenger is delighted with the 28-year-old's contribution this term despite admitting he's often using him out of his preferred position.

He added: "We always criticise Ozil, and I'm not his biggest fan, but I think Sanchez has been bad the last couple of months". I always give 100 per cent, I always fight for everything. I am a player who looks after himself'. "They have more chances to go wrong if you play with a little bit of restriction in your game".
