Arsene Wenger has voiced his dismay with the ongoing debate over Alexis Sanchez’s future at Arsenal amid speculation linking the Chile international with a move to Chelsea.
Sanchez’s contract with Arsenal expires in June 2018 and Wenger recently revealed that talks over a new deal have been put on hold until the end of the season.
Wenger sees no reason for concern, though, and has stressed the attacker still has well over a year left on his existing deal.
“Sanchez still has one and a half years left on his contract. I do not understand that debate,” said Wenger.
“Our job is to perform as long as we are there. I do not understand this kind of anxiety.
“It is absolutely denying what a professional guy is about.”
Sanchez has been a key figure for Arsenal this season, scoring 18 goals in 28 Premier League outings.
