Arsenal offer top attacker contract worth £300000 a week

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez won't play Arsenal's opening match against Leicester City on Friday when the English Premier League begins.

The Chilean has been ruled out of the Gunners' big kick-off against Leicester City this Friday at the Emirates Stadium, and the trip to Stoke next Saturday. But Wenger said he had not heard from PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and referred to French media reports suggesting PSG are more interested in signing Monaco's Kylian Mbappe.

"He had the scan two days ago and is out for a while, maybe two weeks or one more week but he's not available".

It would therefore appear that one more season with Arsenal and a free transfer next summer to the club of his choosing is now the most likely outcome for Sanchez.

Speaking about Sanchez's injury, Arsene Wenger explained why his star man will be missing.

Paris Saint-Germain are set to offer £80m for Alexis Sanchez despite Manchester City being Sanchez's first preference, according to Miguel Delaney of the Independent.

Alexandre Lacazette is in line to make his first Premier League start and all eyes will be on the Frenchman as he looks to justify the club-record fee Arsenal spent bringing him from Lyon.

"Plenty of uncertainties about players who didn't play against Chelsea", Wenger added.

"Always when I have faced opposition or unhappiness, I try to focus on what I think is important in the game, work harder and question myself, what can I improve?"

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits that he is "not super optimistic" about Alexis Sanchez's contract situation.

While Ozil and Ramsey missed the Community Shield, Mertesacker was taken off injured after sustaining a head injury. "I believe he will be a very great player".

Wenger insists he will not relent on Sanchez's future though, claiming nothing has changed from last season and that he will not be sold.
