Alexis Sanchez has reiterated his desire to play in the Champions League as he made it clear he wants to leave the club this summer.

Chilean attacker was Arsenal’s best player last season where they finished fifth and failed to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in Arsene Wenger’s reign.

Sanchez contract with Gunners expires next season and is linked with the likes Manchester City, Bayern Munich and PSG. He is not willing to wait another year to return to European football’s premier club competition.

“I want to play in the Champions League,” he told reporters in his native Chile.

“The decision isn’t down to me, I need to wait for Arsenal.”

Reiterating claims he made in the wake of the Confederations Cup, where Chile lost the final to Germany, he added: “I’ve made my decision, now I wait for Arsenal’s reply.

“The idea is to play in and win the Champions League. It is something that I have dreamed about it since I was little.”

Arsenal are understood to have offered Alexis the biggest contract in their history to remain at the club but Sanchez is no mood to sign a new contract.
