Thousands of Alexis Sanchez's countrymen are planning a protest in Chile to get the striker out of Arsenal.
Chile fans have organised a march in the nation's capital, Santiago, in an attempt to persuade Alexis Sanchez to leave Arsenal.
Following the Gunners' 5-1 Champions League loss to Bayern Munich, the Chilean was granted leave and headed to Italy with a friend, ramping up speculation that he could join Juventus in the transfer window.
"As Chileans we are exhausted of watching one of our biggest stars play on his own so his team can go forward", reads a statement on the event page.
Alexis Sanchez, the only Arsenal player to score in the nightmarish 1-5 defeat against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, could be on his way out of the club pretty soon, if the latest reports are to be believed.
"The truth is we do not care what team he plays for, we just want to see him fight with ten other players to get results, no longer on his own".
Jens Lehmann has told Arsene Wenger he must decide on his Arsenal future NOW for the good of the club.
Arsenal travel to Sutton for the FA Cup fifth round next, in what can reasonably be described as their last remaining chance of a trophy this season.
Rumours that he could depart Arsenal have been widespread for some time as he has still to pen a new deal with the club-his contract expires in 2017-18-per John Cross in the Mirror.
According to John Cross of the Daily Mirror, the club are fearful that Sanchez, who has yet to sign a new contract, will leave the club this summer.
Sanchez has been allowed to leave the United Kingdom and fly to the Barcelona for a court case over tax fraud.
