Sanchez set to quit Arsenal

ALEXIS SANCHEZ plans to quit Arsenal after a furious dressing-room row.

The fuming frontman let rip at team-mates after the humiliating  5-1 Champions League thrashing by Bayern Munich.

Angry  Gunners  No 2 Steve Bould hurled a water bottle against a wall as players blamed each other for their shambolic defeat.

And fans fought among themselves in the stands over manager Arsene Wenger’s future.

Sanchez flew out of Heathrow yesterday and is looking at his options — despite Arsenal’s offer of a new deal.

Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are interested.

Fans called for  Wenger’s  head and Jens Lehmann, a member of their 2003-04 Invincibles side, demanded the 67-year-old decide on his future NOW.

Wenger has a two-year contract extension offer on the table.

He admitted he will make a decision “in March or April”, with the board fearing he will quit in the summer.

But title-winning keeper Lehmann told  talkSPORT: “If he wants to extend his contract, he should do it now so everybody is clear what is going on.

“If not, he also has to make his decision now.”
