Arsenal set to offer bumper contract deal to Sanchez

Arsenal set to offer bumper contract deal to Sanchez

"Alexis will not be available", the Frenchman said, as quoted by The Guardian.

"He is focused. When you have treatment on the medical bench it's not easy".

The Gunners famously failed to qualify for the Champions League last season, for the first time in 20 years under Arsene Wenger, and performed miserably against Bayern Munich during their own Champions League campaign too.

Arsenal have offered Alexis Sanchez a new contract worth £300,000 a week, according to reports in the British media. I don't know how long he will be out - two weeks, maybe one more week.

The article credits both Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain with an interest in signing the forward, but Arsene Wenger is said to be increasingly confident that Sanchez will stay at the club.

"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". "They are looking for Mbappe, that's what I read in the papers. In some games, we will play with four at the back and some with three, but at the start of the season we will certainly play with three".

Nemanja Matic is a "great loss" for Chelsea says Antonio Conte
I do think Alexandre Lacazette will be clinical but I can't guarantee he'll score in the big games, so I'd back him each-way. To satiate his quest, he recently expressed his desire for bringing a fourth player before the transfer window wraps up.

Wenger wouldn't say if any bids had come in for Sanchez.

"It is a relief and I believe as well a reminder to the players that they have hurdles on the way and that we can get round it, like tonight so that is quite positive".

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.

Arsenal have never lost a Premier League game contested on a Friday (W6 D1) while Leicester have never won one on this weekday (D1 L2).

"I'm convinced in 10 or 15 years it will not necessarily be a football specialist who is a manager of a club".
