Alexis Sanchez is more isolated than ever at Arsenal after alienating the dressing room at the Emirates through his form, behaviour and demands according to the latest reports on the Chilean's status.

Following the breakdown of his deadline day move to Manchester City in the summer the forward has been spotted in Paris amid rumours of a January switch to French league leaders Paris Saint-Germain as rumours linger of renewed interest from City and Bayern Munich.

Yet it is his on-field demeanour that has lead to criticism of the former beer777 Udinese and Barcelona attacker and it appears that his mood has been no different behind the scenes.

According to the Mail, Jack Wilshere has already confronted the 29-year-old about his attitude and the team are no longer prepared to celebrate goals with him during games, as was apparently evidenced by his colleagues' reluctance to approach him after finding the net in the 3-2 win over Crystal Palace in midweek.

Even Arsene Wenger is concerned about the situation at the club. The Mirror report that the Frenchman is aware of problems within the squad but also disputed the claims about the lack of celebrations at Selhurst Park by suggesting that the players ran to Wilshere to hail the quality of his assist, not to snub Sanchez.

However, both stories describe a negative atmosphere in the changing room with the Chilean accused of being arrogant, lazy, disrespectful and selfish.

Supporters have begun to criticise the forward for trying to take too much on himself in games and ultimately losing the ball or taking too many touches to the detriment of the team and their performance.
The eagerness to throw down his shoulders and berate team mates despite his own tendency to make errors at present has also not gone down well among the Arsenal playing staff.

Bust ups are said to have taken place in training between Sanchez and his team mates too according to these reports and there is a worry that the toxicity of his relationships, and the effect on the morale of the squad, could derail their season if he is not sold on in January.
Mesut Ozil is in a similar position to the ex-Barcelona forward with regards their contract situations. Both could leave on free transfers in the summer if they are not sold in the new year and do not sign extensions.

While Sanchez's departure has taken on an air of inevitability beer777 after his failure to secure a move to City back in August there is still hope that the German will stay at the Emirates.
