Alexis Sanchez's Latest Stats Show Why Arsenal Have To Keep Him
Another Arsenal game, another 90 minute masterclass from Alexis Sanchez.
The owner of the Premier League's most impressive thighs was in inspired form once again today as he first laid on a goal for Mesut Ozil before adding one of his own, his 50th in the Premier League, as Arsenal cruised to a 4-1 away victory against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium, this evening.
As the weeks count down towards the end of the season, Gunners fans will become increasingly more anxious over the Chilean's lack of commitment to a new contract at the Emirates stadium, with Sanchez's current deal expiring next summer.

With Manchester City, Chelsea, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain all circling around the former Barcelona man, Arsenal are doing all they can to secure his long term future in North London.
It is believed that the Gunners' board are willing to shatter their current wage structure by offering Sanchez £300,000-per-week.
And when you take a look at his latest Premier League stats, it looks like it would be £300,000-per-week well spent.
