Arsenal's Sanchez out of opener with abdominal strain

Alexis Sanchez now has less than 12 months to run on his Arsenal contract

PSG to test Arsenal's resolve with mega offer for Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez has been linked to these clubs and more in a never-ending transfer saga of the summer, with the Chilean tipped to leave Arsenal after the club left him with under a year remaining on his current contract.

"After that, let's take it game by game - go to Stoke - then to Liverpool, who are as well one of the teams who want to win the Premier League".

But, according to The Independent, Paris Saint-Germain will once again test the resolve of Arsenal and Sanchez by making the significant offer ahead of the new season.

With Sanchez having less than 12 months on his contract and no new deal signed, the skeptics out there (definitely not myself included...) could suggest that this injury is rather timely given that Sanchez may not return to action before the summer transfer window shuts on August 31.

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

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez will miss at least two weeks with an abdominal strain picked up before last weekend's Community Shield victory over Chelsea.

"He will not play at Stoke".


Arsenal, without Sanchez, will host Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Friday night, to kick off the new season.

"We didn't manage to do that last season so I'm not super optimistic in that regard, but we have the firm intention of not selling him".

But the Gunners boss has also publicly stated he remains confident both Ozil and Sanchez will remain at Arsenal for the upcoming season.

But he is no closer to shifting those deemed surplus to requirements as he believes many Premier League clubs are in the same position.

Wenger is said to be willing to risk losing Sanchez on a free transfer next summer, rather than sell him to a rival team for his estimated value of £50m.

When asked if Arsenal have received bids for Sanchez, Wenger replied: "I can not tell you that". I just think we are not open - what I said to you many times - to any offers, anyway. We bring you the best of the lot.
