It appears Wenger is adamant to keep Sanchez and according to John Cross of the Daily Mirror, the former Barcelona man has accepted he will not be going anywhere this summer.

Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be interested in bringing Sanchez to the French capital, with the Independent reporting they're poised to follow their world record-breaking move for Neymar with an £80m bid for the Arsenal number seven.

But Wenger says his striker remains concentrated on matters at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal have received a massive boost ahead of the new season.

Wenger revealed the 28-year-old will miss the first couple of weeks of the Premier League season, which includes matches against Leicester City and Stoke City, due to an abdominal problem.

The two worked together during their Barcelona days.


Asked if he expected Al-Khelaifi to get in touch, Wenger replied: "No, no".

"It is a long time I didn't speak to PSG, it is a long time since I spoke to them", Wenger told a press conference on Wednesday. The 23-year-old England global has struggled to secure a regular place since arriving at Arsenal six years ago, but Wenger believes the winger has the potential to become a great player.

"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".

"He will not play at Stoke". "I just think we are not open - what I said to you many times - to any offers, anyway".

"I read in the papers Mbappe is the player PSG want, and I expect no contact from PSG".

Wenger said: "It was not easy to convince Ospina to stay, but he will play games and fight with Petr Cech to start".
