Arsenal manager speaks ahead of Leicester opener

Arsenal manager speaks ahead of Leicester opener

Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City both remain linked with Sanchez, although neither side appear to have made a bid just yet, despite the forward now being in the final year of his contract.

The Daily Mail's Sami Mokbel reported the Gunners submitted the new offer after Sanchez previously rejected terms worth £225,000 per week, a figure that could have increased to £275,000 per week including bonuses. "I think if you read the French papers, they are on Mbappe's case to finish their transfer market".

Speaking after Arsenal beat Chelsea on penalties at Wembley, Wenger revealed he was looking to trim his squad before the transfer window closes, but he said no departures were now imminent.

The Chile forward missed pre-season after being granted extra time off following the Confederations Cup and has been ruled out of Friday's game due to an abdominal strain.

Arsenal begin the Premier League campaign with a home fixture against Leicester at the Emirates on Friday and Wenger is happy with how pre-season has gone. "He had a little abdominal strain that he caught on Sunday morning in training". Personally I think he is a hugely talented player, he's on the way up and he will continue to move up because the potential is there.

"I have been hesitating because I am the most happy man when I play and I am on the pitch".

"He is out for a while, I don't know is it two weeks, one more week".

With Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey also serious doubts for the season opener against the Foxes, Arsenal will have to rely on the likes of Alexandre Lacazette, Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi to lead their attack. I have players coming back who have not played [Mustafi].

"Alexis is not available, for example".

"We didn't manage to do that last season so I'm not super optimistic in that regard, but we have the firm intention of not selling him".

"Yes, because look at what City have done", he said.
