No change to Alexis Sanchez situation says Arsene Wenger

No change to Alexis Sanchez situation says Arsene Wenger

Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be interested in bringing Sanchez to the French capital, with the Independent reporting they're poised to follow their world record-breaking move for Neymar with an £80m bid for the Arsenal number seven.

Sanchez will miss Arsenal's Premier League opener with Leicester City on Friday night due to an abdominal strain, with Wenger having said this week he is "out for a while".

Arsenal have refused to consider selling the forward, who hit 24 goals in 38 league games last term, a tally bettered only by Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku in the English top flight.

"He had a scan two days ago and he's out for a while - I don't know; two weeks or one more week?"

Asked to sum up Sanchez's state, Wenger replied: "Focused".

"I felt that to lose tonight would have been awful for us because we had such good preparation and to sit there in the morning and think we had lost at home would have been bad", he said.

But Wenger says his striker remains concentrated on matters at the Emirates Stadium.

"For us, Alexis Sanchez is a loss of course but we had all the other players prepared in pre-season already and it can happen in preparation any way".

Wenger led Arsenal to Community Shield success against Chelsea on Sunday, but a return to Premier League action sees the Frenchman limited by familiar fitness concerns.

Undermining Wenger's quest for harmony is the uncertainty surrounding several first-team players.

As you might have heard, maybe once or twice, Alexis Sanchez has less than a year left on his current contract, so of course the topic came up once again.
