Ian Wright has appeared to suggest that Alexis Sanchez’s agent is spearheading the striker’s gigantic contract demands in negotiations with Arsenal.

The Chile international’s future still hasn’t been resolved despite the Sanchez sage rumbling on over the past six months or so.

The 28-year-old has less than a year remaining on his current Arsenal deal which throws up the possibility of Sanchez leaving the north London club for nothing next summer.

Arsenal’s Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester City have been linked with Sanchez in the current transfer window, while Bayern Munich and Juventus are thought to be leading interest on the continent.

Last week, the Daily Mirror reported that Sanchez was demanding £400,000 a week to match the contract that was thought to be on offer from China earlier this year.

And Arsenal legend Wright was under no illusion as to who was responsible for masterminding Sanchez’s excessive contract demands.

Wright wrote on Twitter: “Agents always greedy . Wasn’t 400k what the Chinese offered . Make no mistake lex knows ”

Arsenal signed Alexandre Lacazette in a club-record £52m deal from Ligue 1 side Lyon last week.

The Gunners have also brought in Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac from Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 on a free transfer.
