Sanchez: "New contract depends on Arsenal"

Alexis Sanchez says he is happy at Arsenal and is not considering to leave them.

Alexis Sanchez joined Arsenal in 2014 from Barcelona and his current contract runs until summer 2018. One and a half years before the expiration, other clubs hope to make him join them.

He has been linked with European but also with Chinese clubs. Arsenal and the Chilean haven't agreed yet and it is not sure, if he wants to stay but now he has cleared the situation in an interview.

It really doesn't depend on me - if they want to show confidence in me. I'm very happy at the club. I love all the staff. I'm very grateful for everybody here.

"It depends on Arsenal," the Chilean told 'Sky Sports' about his situation. "I enjoy the relationship with the fans. I want to achieve more for them. I want to win the Premier League and the Champions League.

I've told my agent I don't want to speak about this too much when all the rumours are going around - it can distract a player from their main focus of concentration," he said.

"I'm playing well and scoring goals. I'm achieving my objectives. I'm just focused on playing football, Sunday is a very important match. I've got an agent who deals with all of this, so I just want to focus on making the fans happy.

"I'm very relaxed. I'm trying not to let it bother me - that's not what I want. We'll see when it's all resolved - I'm very calm. I've told my agent I don't want to speak about this sort of thing," he said.
