The Chilean’s contract expires next summer and he has recently insisted he is happy in London and wants to finish his contract his contract with the Gunners.
However, that has not prevented the rumour mill from going into overdrive with both Chelsea and PSG having reportedly opened talks with the 28-year-old over a summer move.
This latest report now claims that Sanchez has told he friends he loves life in England and does not want to leave the capital, despite so far being unable to agree a new deal.

Arsenal have already been linked with a host of new players this summer including Alexandre Lacazette, Kylian Mbappe, Marco Reus and Andrea Belotti although these have largely been viewed as potential replacements for Sanchez.
Arsene Wenger has admitted he is already planning for next season although his future is still not confirmed and where the club finishes this season may also have an effect on who the club is able to bring in.
The Gunners are currently fifth in the table, four points behind Manchester City albeit with a game in hand, but could miss out on some of their top transfer targets if they fail to secure Champions League football.
