Arsenal could be in danger of losing both Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to two of its closest rivals this summer, according to reports.

Sanchez, the former Barcelona forward, has cut a frustrated figure at Arsenal this season as the team’s form dipped dramatically and resulted in it dropping out of the Champions League positions.

The 28-year-old has shown his dissatisfaction with the situation at Arsenal this season and speculation suggests he will look for a move away from the club this summer.

Chelsea and Juventus are among the clubs believed to be interested in signing Sanchez, but according to the Daily Mail, the forward is keen on a reunion with his former manager Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

Sanchez spent a year with Guardiola at Barcelona but they could be back working together at the Etihad Stadium.

Liverpool is also keeping a keen eye on Arsenal’s disgruntled players, as Jurgen Klopp’s team aims to bring Oxlade-Chamberlain to Anfield in the summer, according to The Daily Telegraph.

Klopp, the report says, is looking to seize upon the uncertainty at the Emirates Stadium this season, with Arsenal’s Champions League hopes for next year dimming and Arsene Wenger’s future still unclear.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, 23, is heading into the final 12 months of his contract at Arsenal and the club is said to value him at £35 million ($44 million), a figure Liverpool is willing to meet.

The summer transfer window will reopen on July 1.
