AS Monaco have reportedly set to enter the race to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal this summer.
The Chile international has just one year left on his current contract at the north London but, despite being keen to leave the Emirates Stadium, manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that the player is going nowhere.
Arsenal are understood to be willing to lose the 28-year-old forward on a free transfer next summer, but the French champions are reportedly planning to test their resolve with a huge £45m bid for the Chilean.

The Ligue 1 outfit are desperate to make a marquee signing this summer having already lost the couple of star players such as Bernardo Silva, Benjamin Mendy and Tiemoue Bakayoko following their stunning performances last season.
The French striker Kylian Mbappe is also expected to leave Stade Louis II in the coming weeks, with Real Madrid interested to sign a player ahead of new season.
