The Chilean forward is almost in the final six months of his Gunners contract, but his manager maintains that he is not expecting to sanction a sale

Arsene Wenger insists he is "not fearful" of Alexis Sanchez leaving Arsenal in January.

The Chile international will enter the final six months of his Arsenal contract at the start of January and is not expected to remain with the club next term.

Sanchez, who continues to be linked with a move to Manchester City, provided another reminder of his importance to the Gunners with a match-winning brace in the 3-2 defeat of Crystal Palace on Thursday.

If Arsenal do not sell the former Barcelona forward in January there is a significant chance they will lose him on a free transfer, though Wenger is not worried about him leaving just yet.

"I am not fearful," Wenger told Sky Sports. "But as you said, that will be a subject that arises because of his contractual situation.

"I can only repeat what I've said until now and I've said it many times, so I won't repeat."
