Alexis Sanchez out for 'a while', confirms Wenger

Alexis Sanchez out for 'a while', confirms Wenger

"I can't tell you that at the moment", he said.

Wenger though stressed on the fact that Sanchez remained "focused" on playing for Arsenal this season.

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 reportedly offered Alexis Sanchez a new deal worth £300,000 a week, according to the Daily Mail. "He had an abdominal strain and could be out for one or two weeks".

Wenger said Sanchez would not have started against Leicester even if he wasn't injured. "I think if you read the French papers, they are on Mbappe's case to finish their transfer market".

"We need to transform the quality of the preparation into points and that is, of course, a pragmatic view, but what matters is we win the game and start in a strong way, which we didn't do past year".

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez was the only player to reach double figures for both goals (24) and assists (10) in the Premier League last season.

The manager is not hopeful of keeping the player, and has made it fairly clear that he thinks the player will go at the end of his current deal, which of course runs out at the end of the season.

The Frenchman also dismissed media reports linking Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain with rival Chelsea.

"He's very conscious of his qualities, he was not always".

"I have plenty of uncertainties about the players who didn't play against Chelsea", he said.

The aforementioned trio were pictured training with the rest of the first-team and are likely to be involved in the match day squad for the first league game of the season.

While Ozil and Ramsey missed the Community Shield, Mertesacker was taken off injured after sustaining a head injury.
