Thierry Henry delivers update on Alexis Sanchez’s future at Arsenal

Thierry Henry has his say on Alexis Sanchez's future at Arsenal beyond the summer of 2018

Thierry Henry has admitted that he is desperate to see Alexis Sanchez commit his future to Arsenal by signing a new contract.

The Chile international’s future at The Emirates has been a source of speculation in recent months after both he and Mesut Ozil entered into the final two years of their contracts with the club.

Sanchez has earned a reputation as one of the Premier League’s top attacking players since his arrival at Arsenal from Barcelona in the summer of 2014.

The forward has already scored 14 goals and made seven assists in the Premier League for the north London side this season.

And former Arsenal star Henry has given his take on where Sanchez’s future at Arsenal stands.

When asked if he thinks Sanchez will sign a new deal at Arsenal, Henry told Sky Sports: “I want him to sign, everybody wants him to sign.

“That’s a tricky one for the club. That’s why you have guys there to be able to deal with that.

“But, as an Arsenal fan, I want Alexis Sanchez to stay for life because he is the future of the club. Same with Mesut Ozil.”
