The Chilean is in the final year of his contract and has expressed his desire to leave London for quite some time now. He almost joined Manchester City on deadline day back in August but for Arsenal failing to land a replacement in time. The Citizens are still looking to sign the forward in 2018 while Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) remain interested from France.
Now, the situation is such that the 29-year old could be sold in January itself. Sanchez was confronted by his team-mates in the dressing room following the Gunners’ away win at Burnley last month as per The Guardian. The bust-up reportedly occurred on 26th November, with Arsenal players accusing their star forward of having a”poor attitude” and calling out his “on-field histrionics”, especially when things do not go his way.
Recently, club legend Thierry Henry pointed out the mixed reaction from the players when Sanchez’s double against Crystal Palace secured maximum points for Arsene Wenger’s side. Unrest in the dressing room is bad for a club’s success and Wenger is now reportedly looking to cut his losses in the New Year, as per Goal.
Recently, team-mate Mohamed Elneny took a dig at Sanchez’s Chile failing to qualify for the World Cup on Twitter.

While it does look to be in a friendly vein, things are looking likely that Sanchez’s time at the Emirates will come to an end in January.
