Alexis Sanchez could be on his way out of The Emirates.
The Daily Mirror are reporting that Juventus and Manchester City are grappling for his signature as his future remains in doubt.
Why would Arsenal let him go?
The Chilean international has undoubtedly been a superb signing: a match winner whose magic has lifted the Gunners out of many tough situations.
Indeed, Wenger would be reluctant to see his star-man don the blue of Manchester or the stripes of Juventus.
Yet, the forward is demanding a huge pay-rise, one that does not match the prevailing ethos at Arsenal.
He is seeking a rise on his current £130,000 a week deal that already sees him as one of the top-earners at the club.
With Wenger notoriously prude in his fiscal activities, Sanchez could have his demands rejected, and would thus look elsewhere.
Arsene Wenger is in his last year of his current deal as Arsenal manager and many see this season as his last chance to win the league: Sanchez leaving London in January would inevitably cripple any hopes they have of clinching a first title in 12 years.
