Insider delivers latest news on Alexis Sanchez's Arsenal future

20 Juillet 2017

Wenger is under pressure after the Premier League side failed to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in 20 years, and he is also dealing with persistent doubts about several of his star players.

Sanchez is understood to prefer City, but a move to PSG would also been considered by his camp, and Arsenal do their best to push him to the French capital, if they did sell.

However, Arsenal do not want to sell to a direct Premier League rival and Arsene Wenger recently reiterated that the decision to keep the Chilean had already been made.

"I think we finished our trip to Australia in a good way, now let's focus on China".

"We'll see about my future, but for the moment I'm still an Arsenal player".

On Monday, Wenger became the longest serving manager in Premier League history and he's celebrated by snatching himself some Arsenal trainers.

Granted, I understand why they wouldn't want to sell him to another English club, such as Manchester City or Chelsea, but there's undoubtedly interest in him from overseas.

The future of the England worldwide remains uncertain but he impressed in the unfamiliar wing-back role last season. This year's team is unlikely to intersect in the competitions, but without the classic meeting still has not done.

Arsenal did not qualify for the competition following their fifth-placed league finish last season and Wenger believes that Sanchez's quotes were mistranslated when he spoke to Chilean radio station Radio Sport.

"I was captain for the day, no one else was going to come out and I felt like I had to say something, ".

While players like Mahrez and Lemar have continuously been linked, the arrival of Benzema will provide the Gunners with a player who has the experience of winning at the very top level.

Wenger, however, has once again stressed in his latest update on the transfer saga that Sanchez will be 100% staying where he is.

"I hope, apart from that, that the players don't put so much attention, (and) concentrate on what they have to do for the season".

"That's 17 years before Sanchez arrived and three years with him, so he can get us back in there".
