Bayern Munich are reportedly ready to offer Alexis Sanchez a huge deal worth £350,000-a-week to leave Arsenal, according to Standard Sport.
Recent reports have claimed Arsenal have offered the Chilean £280,000-per-week to extend his deal, which would make him the highest paid player in the club’s history.
However, the Gunners may have to consider upping their offer with the German giants apparently ready to spend big to land their man.
Sanchez has spoken out about his future this week, insisting all contract talks will be left to his agent as he concentrates on the Confederations Cup with Chile.
The Chilean was speaking after huge speculation that Manchester City were closing in on a deal for the 28-year-old which would see him reunite with Pep Guardiola.
While Arsenal would surely loathe to let their best player move to a Premier League rival, speculation has claimed Wenger could sanction the deal if Sanchez pushes for a move and the club can sign a quality replacement.

Arsenal are rumoured to be interested in Riyad Mahrez, Kylian Mbappe and Alexandre Lacazette as they seek to strengthen their squad and mount a title challenge next season.
The future of Sanchez, meanwhile, looks set to dominate the headlines for some time to come with Manchester City and Bayern now seemingly the most likely destinations for the Chilean if he does indeed decide to depart.
