Arsenal braced for edgy Premier League season as Leicester City target stability

Arsenal braced for edgy Premier League season as Leicester City target stability

As Paul Radley noted in his preview, Arsene Wenger has done much to dampen the disquiet of the more vocal Arsenal fans who were baying for his departure after a lacklustre 2016/17 campaign.

It's unknown whether the £300,000-per-week offer will match Sanchez's expectations, but Mokbel noted that was the figure at which he expected to begin negotiations, meaning Arsenal should now be on the same wavelength.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists the Chilean will not leave the Emirates before the end of the transfer window but interest in the 28-year-old refuses to go away. I think, if you read the French papers, Kylian Mbappé is how they will look to finish their transfer market. Even if that takes over £80m, PSG believe they can get him.

Sanchez, who has also been linked with Manchester City, has not played for Arsenal in pre-season after being granted extra time off after playing at the Confederations Cup with Chile.

Guide "Gunners" are ready to make a player the highest paid player in Arsenal but in the entire Premier League.

He is now appealing against a two-month prison sentence for assaulting a police officer past year and, because of that conviction, was banned from entering the United Kingdom for PSG's Champions League fixture against Arsenal last season.

"Sanchez will not be available", he said.

Wenger has revealed how uncertainty over his future last season created a "lack of clarity in the dressing room" and saw players asking him what was going on.

The current contract Sanchez with Arsenal expires in the summer of 2018.

Asked if any bids had been lodged for Sanchez, the Frenchman replied: "I can't tell you that at the moment. We are not open to any offers, anyway". All that will do is turn the focus to January and how he will be able to talk to clubs outside the Premier League come the turn of the year.

"You will have so many scientists around the team that who will bring out the team to play on Saturday will be more management specialists than football specialists".
