The Gunners are capitalising upon Sanchez’s weak spot – his dogs – hoping that they will able to convince the former Barcelona star to sign a new contract at Arsenal.

Arsenal have included the Chilean’s dogs Atom and Humber on the club’s Christmas list this year and it is understood that this is a possible trick to win Sanchez’s heart.

The dogs featured on Sanchez’s Instagram story wearing their Christmas jumpers along with the caption – “Gunners”.

The Gunners fans are keeping their fingers crossed, hoping that this could be a hint that the Chilean has changed his mind, and will now sign a new deal to stay at the North London club for the long-term.

Arsenal have started selling their Christmas jumpers and 20 per cent of the revenue generated from this will go to charity Save the Children UK.

Majority of the Christmas jumpers have been made for the players and for fans, who can buy them. But they have also made two extra festive garments for Sanchez’s dogs.

The Chilean has entered the final ten months of his contract with the Gunners and it is understood that the former Barcelona player will not put pen to paper on a new deal at Arsenal.

Sources close to the player revealed that Sanchez has made up his mind and will not stay at Arsenal. The Chilean is desperate to move to Man City either in January or as free agent next summer.

Sanchez is keen to join Man City

Man City are confident of roping in Sanchez despite having failing to land him on a mega £60m bid on deadline day as Arsenal refused to sell their key player after transfer target Thomas Lemar turned down a £90m move to the Emirates.

Man City are not willing to spend anything more than £20m on the Chilean, who will be out of contract next summer.

Guardiola wants Sanchez

Wenger is not willing to allow the Chilean to join a league rival, and is now planning his next move to keep the former Barca man at the Emirates.

FootTheBall understands that Arsenal need to shift their focus from Sanchez’s dogs and instead plan out something good if they really want to convince the Copa America winner to stay.
