Jamie Redknapp has warned Arsenal that Alexis Sanchez will prove a problem when the forward returns from his summer break.

The Chile international’s future has been a source of relentless speculation in the summer transfer window so far.

Arsenal failed to agree a contract extension with the north London club during the 2016-17 Premier League campaign.

Sanchez has less than 12 months remaining on his current contract to open up the possibility of the Arsenal star leaving next summer for nothing.

Premier League champions Chelsea and Manchester City have both been linked with the South American in the summer transfer window.

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich and Serie A giants Juventus are thought to be heading up interest from the continent.

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Redknapp has warned Arsenal that the Sanchez problem isn’t going away any time soon.

“Will Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez stay at the club? I think they are still going to have a problem with Sanchez when he returns from his break,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“There’s still a contractual situation to deal with still so it’s an interesting time at Arsenal.”

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

Wenger has also added Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac to his Arsenal squad in a free transfer from German club Schalke 04.
