Alexis Sanchez and Eden Hazard are two of the most in demand players in the Premier League. Numerous reports link the players to high-profile transfers. Both recently confirmed they do not intend to leave Arsenal and Chelsea, respectively.
Alexis Sanchez joined Arsenal from Barcelona in the Summer of 2014 for a fee of £31.7 million. Sanchez is held in high regard, as one of the most talented players in the Premier League at the moment. Arsenal’s recent bad form which has seen them eliminated from the Champions League and struggle domestically, increased rumors that the player might be on his way out.
Arsene Wenger recently revealed Sanchez’s and Mesut Ozil’s contract negotiations have broken down. The club will start new negotiations at the end of the season. However, Sanchez revealed he is fact happy at the London side and wants to continue playing for the club.
“I am happy in London and I hope to finish my contract at Arsenal,” Sanchez told reporters in his native Chile.
“I want to stay in a winning team and keep playing in the same city. I want to play in a team that has aspirations. I’m 28 years old, I still have a lot ahead of me. I am a player who takes great care of himself.”

Elsewhere, Chelsea star Eden Hazard has enjoyed a great season at Chelsea. Reports linked the talented winger to a move to Real Madrid. Rumors even suggested Real had made an offer of £100million. Hazard insists he is also happy in London and that family life may be another factor helping him stay put at his current club.
“Maybe I will live in Belgium, to be close to the family, or else I could go somewhere with nice weather. My kids are very settled in London so it could be here – that’s a long way off yet, so we will see,” Hazard told Chelsea’s official web-site.

Chelsea are in first place in the Premier League with a comfortable 10 point lead. Hazard has scored 11 times in 26 appearances this season. Along with Kante and Costa, he has been vital for his team’s success. Manager Antonio Conte has opted to use the player either as a left winger or as an attacking midfielder behind striker Diego Costa. Hazard is likely to add a second title at Chelsea, after the triumph in the 2014-15 season.
