Alexis Sanchez has “clocked off” at Arsenal as a result of uncertainty surrounding his future at the club, says Ian Wright.

The Chilean’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season and it’s expected he won’t be renewing it at the close of the current campaign.

Sanchez was close to joining Manchester City in the summer and continues to be linked to the side this season.

Wright has criticised the player for a loss of form this season, arguing that his attitude has not been good enough.

“It does look to me like he’s clocked off," he said on BBC Radio 5Live.

“Sanchez’s attitude is saying a lot about him. If he left in January, the way he’s playing now, I can’t see how that’s going to hurt Arsenal. He’s not playing well enough.

“He’s not putting in a shift. Coutinho wanted to leave; he put in a transfer request but look at the way he’s playing. Look at the way Ozil is playing.

“You’ve got to still put it in. He’s not putting it in. It says a lot about him.

“People looking in who are potential buyers, what are they thinking about him and his attitude?

“I can’t see Ozil staying but what we’re seeing from him now is the kind of play that we want to see from him."
