Arsenal to make big Alexis Sanchez push


There is a sense at PSG that Aurier needs a fresh start to revive his career.

That Wenger is not going into the new campaign with the fans still at his throat owes much to Arsenal's strong finish to last season.

Arsene Wenger spent a club-record £52m fee on Alexandre Lacazette to sign the France global from Ligue 1 side Lyon.

'Alexis Sanchez is turning into a lose-lose situation for Arsenal. I personally think he's a hugely talented player and he's on the way up.

"Alexis Sanchez is out for a while", Wenger said during a press conference on Wednesday.

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.

"I'd love to keep him and add more to it", Wright told Sky Sports. "He is focused. Of course when you have treatment on a medical bench, it's not easy". Now, will we manage to extend his contract?

The Chilean is in the final 12 months of his deal and has been linked with a move to the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.

'It's a long time I didn't speak to Nasser because [he's] certainly very busy to complete the transfer of Neymar'.

They defeated Chelsea again when the teams renewed acquaintances at Wembley in last Sunday's Community Shield, winning a penalty shootout 4-1 after a 1-1 draw.

Wenger revealed a fresh blow after confirming that Alexis Sanchez has picked up an abdominal strain and the attacker is expected to be out for at least two weeks.

The Gunners could be without Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and captain Per Mertesacker against Leicester, with the defence set to be a makeshit affair as Laurent Koscielny is suspended.

Previously, Sanchez was reported to have demanded the same amount in weekly wages and now that the Gunners have come through with the amount, it remains to be seen if he stays back at the Emirates.
