The Chilean superstar is locked in talks with club officials over a new contract, with the North London club desperate to keep the 27-year-old long term.
Over the summer there had been reports that Sanchez, is still unsure where his long term future lies, and whilst the forward is open to signing a new deal at the Emirates, he wants the option of making a move elsewhere in the near future, should a top club come in for him.
The report goes on to claim that Sanchez will only commit to the Gunners if there is a realistic buy-out clause inserted into his contract.
