Alexis Sanchez has said his future at Arsenal is in the hands of his agent amid mounting speculation of a summer move away from the Emirates.

The Chilean, who has one year left on his current contract, has yet to sign an extension deal at Arsenal and has subsequently emerged as a top target for a number of clubs on the continent.

Bayern Munich have been heavily linked to Sanchez in recent weeks, as have Chelsea and Manchester City.

And in his latest revelation, the 28-year-old has said his agent is now dealing with the matter of his future as he turns his attention to the Confederations Cup with Chile.

"I'm looking at what my agent is doing,” he said. “For now, I'm focused on the Confederations Cup in Russia and trying to do well.

"The truth is that my agent will see to it. He knows and he will sit down with the club to look for the best option for me. I'd like a lot of things but I'm only thinking about the national team."

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has remained insistent that neither Sanchez nor Mesut Ozil will leave this summer as he attempts to hold on to the club’s prized possessions.

Speaking to beIN Sports last week, the Frenchman said: "This summer, first of all they will stay at the club and hopefully we can extend their contract."

Right-back Hector Bellerin has also been linked with a move to Barcelona in recent weeks but Arsenal are confident of keeping hold of the Spaniard, who signed a new deal last autumn and tweeted this week: “Don’t believe everything you read…”
