Arsene Wenger opens up about Arsenal star's potential departure

The Premier League leaders had a £60m bid for the Chile global accepted in August, only for the proposed transfer to collapse as Arsenal failed in their attempt to sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco as a replacement.

LEROY SANE claims he is not anxious about his place in the Manchester City starting XI. even if they sign Alexis Sanchez.

When we just thought that it is a question of "when" rather than "will" Alexis Sanchez join Manchester City, Manchester United had to interfere.

Theo Walcott is another Arsenal player poised to leave this month, with Everton manager Sam Allardyce revealing on Friday that they are hopeful of sealing a permanent deal.

The Gunners, who maintain they have not yet received an approach for Sanchez, have been linked with Bordeaux's Brazilian forward Malcom. You conclude [that Manchester United are also interested] - but I don't want to give you the wrong information.

Conte was asked what he had said to the player when the two spoke in the Stamford Bridge tunnel ahead of Wednesday's League Cup tie between Chelsea and Arsenal.

"Apart from that, (he's an) Arsenal player, I feel I shouldn't say much more than this".

They are also willing to throw in Henrikh Mkhitaryan as part of the deal, which could tempt Arsenal, as they want a replacement before they allow Alexis to leave.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that he is optimistic that star man Mesut Özil will sign a contract extension, but stated that Chilean Alexis Sanchez is unlikely to put pen to paper on a new deal at the Emirates.

"They're both back for us on the training pitch so we're pleased with that but we'll have to make a late decision on whether they will play".

"I think it's a good investment because we are talking about a top player and I'm hearing that the amount is around £20m".

"Of course I want a quick resolution", he told reporters at Arsenal's north London training base.

"In relation to Sanchez all I can say, which everyone else says, is that he is a phenomenal player". Certainly not, but there's always a way to find a different balance.
