Alexis Sanchez has dropped a big hint that he is keen to leave Arsenal this summer by declaring that he wants to play in the Champions League next season.

The Chile international’s future has been a relentless source of speculation this summer after he entered into the final 12 months of his contract at The Emirates.

Sanchez has been linked with a move away from Arsenal after the Gunners missed out on qualification for next season’s Champions League following their fifth-placed finish last term.

Arsenal could decide to keep hold of Sanchez this summer but could then risk losing him on a free transfer this time next year.

Now, the 28-year-old attacker has been quoted as saying that he wants to play in the Champions League – something Arsenal cannot offer him next season.

Sanchez told Sport Radio Chile, as quoted by the Daily Star: “I want to play in the Champions League.

“I’ve made my decision, now I wait for Arsenal’s reply. The idea is to play and win the Champions League.

“I’ve dreamt about it since I was a kid.”

Arsenal ended last season on a high by beating Chelsea to win the FA Cup at Wembley and lift the trophy for the third time in four years.
