Arsenal and attacking midfielder Alexis Sanchez will meet next year to discuss the possibility of extending the player's contract, manager Arsene Wenger has revealed.
The 26-year-old is expected to extend his stay at the Emirates according to recent reports but the Frenchman says the club is not in a hurry to assess the contract situation of the Chilean.
"We are in the same situation," Wenger explained.
"At the end of the year they have two-and-a-half years left on their contract so we still have some time. We are not in a hurry.
"Of course we want them to stay here at the club and we will start the negotiations at some stage. At the moment we have not started them.
"From the New Year to the summer we will certainly start it with all the players who have two years to go at the end of the season."
