Three Players who could replace Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal this summer

Arsenal could end their association with Alexis Sanchez this summer

Premier League giants Arsenal are expected to bring in a top-class striker this summer with Alexis Sanchez in particular, pushing for a move away from the Emirates. You could use the best sports betting apps around to place a bet on his next destination.

The Chile international is approaching the final year of his Gunners contract, and talks over an extension seemed to have stalled.

Sanchez is said to demand a wage package of around £250,000-a-week, and this is something the Gunners' hierarchy are unwilling to match, as of now.

Here are three suitable players who could take the place of the Chilean, should he depart for a rival European club:

Alexandre Lacazette:

The 25-year-old is regarded as one of the finest talents in the French Ligue 1, and his performances have captured the attention of several English clubs including West Ham United and Liverpool.

With more than 20 goals to his name in each of his last three seasons, Lacazette has made his mark in his home nation, and he looks set to pursue a fresh challenge abroad.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has admitted that he won't come in the way of the marksman, should any club match his £60m valuation in the summer.

Kylian Mbappe:

The teenage sensation has hit the heights with AS Monaco this season having netted 14 goals across all competitions.

Dubbed 'the next Thierry Henry', the 18-year-old has received praise from Arsene Wenger, who admitted that the Gunners failed with an approach for his services last summer.

Mbappe is likely to receive further interest from Europe's elite with Real Madrid the latest club to be thrown into the hat.

The Principality outfit currently value their asset at around £52m, but this price could jump further up, should there be a transfer tussle for his signature.

Mbappe has all the traits to match former Gunners great Henry, but the early career hype may still have an effect on his progress.

Andrea Belotti:

23-year-old Andre Belotti is the other being constantly linked with the Gunners. The Italy international has been scouted by the north London club on several occasions this season, but his current £86m release clause could hinder the deal.

The former Palermo man has had a stellar campaign this term with 24 goals in all competitions, and this may well justify his hefty price tag.

Toro chairman Urbano Cairo has insisted that the club will not sell the striker below his escape clause, and this could put the Gunners out of the chase with Chelsea and Barcelona showing keen interest in the player.

Nevertheless, Arsene Wenger's side could maintain their pursuit of Belotti this summer having previously deemed to have failed with a £56m approach for his services in January.
