Arsenal have reportedly denied claims that star forward Alexis Sanchez has placed a transfer request on the table.
The Chile international produced mixed reactions over the weekend as the Gunners were thrashed by Liverpool by a 4-0 scoreline.
Sanchez started his competitive game of the game at Anfield on Sunday, and he was visibly disappointing until he was substituted in the second period.
Watching his side struggle, the Chilean was caught smirking on the bench – a site similar to the 5-1 loss at the hands of Bayern Munich earlier this year.
A recent report from The Mirror cited that the Chilean has handed in a transfer request following the weekend defeat as he is not comfortable with the situation of the players and the manager himself.
However, this has been quickly dismissed by the north London giants, who have no intention to sell the Chilean, who is in the final year of his Gunners deal, Sky Sports News reports.
Arsenal are set to part ways with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who is due to have a medical with Chelsea later on Tuesday, and the next few days could be testing for the club with Sanchez unsettled over his current situation.
Arsene Wenger has signed just two players in Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette in the summer transfer window, and the next few days could be tedious with a string of first-team players associated with potential exits.
Kieran Gibbs and Lucas Perez are among the leading candidates who could leave the club, but the likes of Sanchez and Shkodran Mustafi continue to be linked with Manchester City and Inter Milan respectively prior to Thursday’s transfer deadline.
