Alexis Sanchez will not play for Arsenal's Premier League opener against Leicester

Alexis Sanchez will not play for Arsenal's Premier League opener against Leicester

Arsene Wenger is prepared to let Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain start the new season with less than a year remaining on their contracts, which means the Gunners risk losing the trio's services for nothing next summer, but Arsenal are confident a deal for the former is set to go ahead.

With Alexis Sanchez likely to leave either this or next summer, securing Ozil's signature would be a huge boost for Arsenal and their future plans.

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. "He had a little abdominal strain that he caught on Sunday morning in training".

'I don't know if it is two weeks or one more week, but he will not be available. But do I feel sorry for Chelsea because they don't have enough players? No'.

Wenger said the Chile worldwide would miss Arsenal's home fixture against Leicester City on Friday as well as the trip to Stoke City on August 19.

'But I don't think I would have included him on Friday night. I think if you read the French papers, they are on [Kylian] Mbappe's case to finish their transfer market'.

"Sanchez has been focused, but when you have treatment on medical bench it is not easy". Now, will we manage to extend his contract?

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

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.

Wenger led Arsenal to Community Shield success against Chelsea on Sunday, but a return to Premier League action sees the Frenchman limited by familiar fitness concerns. For example Ramsey, Ozil, (Per) Mertesacker, of course (Laurent) Koscielny is suspended. "I have players coming back who have not played like [Shkodran] Mustafi and Sanchez".
