Alexis Sanchez has been in talks with the North London outfit for some time regarding fresh terms, but it has been widely reported that negotiations have hit a snag over wages.

It is believed that Sanchez’s camp are refusing to budge on their demands of a significant hike in his current £130,000-a-week salary package.

According to The Mirror, Chelsea are keeping a close eye on the situation and will try to lure the Chile international to Stamford Bridge if it becomes clear that the 27-year-old will not commit his future to the Gunners.

Sanchez, who is the Premier League’s joint-top scorer alongside Chelsea’s Diego Costa on 11 goals, has 18 months left to run on his current deal.
