Gary Neville has warned Arsenal against trying to cash in on Alexis Sanchez in the January transfer window.

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

The 29-year-old’s current deal is set to expire at the end of the season and it remains to be seen whether Arsenal will try and sell him in January or risk losing him for free next summer.

One thing is for sure, there is bound to be plenty of speculation linking Sanchez with a move away from Arsenal once the January transfer window opens.

However, former Manchester United defender Neville believes that it is crucial for Arsenal to keep hold of the Chilean if they want to secure a top-four finish this season.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Neville said: “Arsenal need Sanchez.

“They need a really good run from him in the top-four race. Arsenal need all there best players firings. It is so tight.”

Arsenal return to Premier League action on New Year’s Eve when they take on West Brom at The Hawthorns.

The Gunners, who won the FA Cup last season, are aiming to break back into the top four this season after they finished in fifth place in the Premier League last term.
