Alexis Sanchez's future as an Arsenal player still remains in doubt, as reports emerge of both PSG's Neymar and Dani Alves speaking to the Chilean star in encouraging terms regarding a move to Paris.

According to Don Balon, reported via the Daily Star, the Brazilian duo have attempted to persuade Sanchez to follow their lead and make a mega-money move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Arsene Wenger has so far been steadfast in his approach of not letting his star-forward depart the Emirates, but is also running the risk of seeing Sanchez leave for nothing next summer - as the 28-year-old is in the final year of his contract with the Gunners.

Despite his firm stance regarding a potential move away from the north London club, the Arsenal boss has made no cast-iron guarantees that Sanchez will still be a Gunners player come the end of the transfer window, and the added words from both Neymar and Alves will only contribute to more speculation.

When asked if he could give a 100 per cent assurance that Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mesut Ozil would still be at the Emirates beyond August 31, Wenger replied: “One hundred per cent never exists in our job.”

Sanchez has been offered £300,000-a-week to sign a new deal but is unwilling to put pen to paper at present.

It has been well-reported that the club are struggling to convince him to sign and, yesterday, Wenger said: “We have not progressed on that front.

“I want Sanchez to stay, I want Sanchez to extend his contract. But as well you have to be capable to afford to pay him.”
