Sanchez To Stay At Arsenal & Leave For Free Next Summer

Chelsea players celebrate a goal

GETTYMichael Owen has tipped Chelsea to win the title this season

French champions Monaco are preparing a £45m bid for Arsenal want-away striker Alexis Sanchez.

I believe City's hierarchy would ideally rather keep him, but should Sanchez arrive and with Gabriel Jesus already highlighted as the number one striker - they realise Aguero could be left very unhappy on the bench.

"He is focused. My decision is clear, he will stay and he will respect that and that's as simple as that", Wenger said of the Chile forward. He will accept that...

The Exploding Heads can not wait for the Premier League season and from the looks of it, so do the players. "Ramsey has a chance to play, but I think he could be short as well with a little calf problem".

The Chile global has one year remaining on his current deal in north London and has yet to sign any extension, leading to claims he is keen on departing the Emirates Stadium. The Monaco side are certainly not short of cash having made almost £150m in transfer fees this summer through the sales of Bernardo Silva, Benjamin Mendy and Tiemoue Bakayoko. But with that now resolved, Wenger was confident that the team could move on and progress this season.

And the Gunners boss is not budging from his stance that last season's top scorer will be at the club this season, even if there is no progress on an extension to his deal.

Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil missed Arsenal's Community Shield victory over Chelsea due to a lack of preparation and injury, Arsene Wenger revealed.

Alexis Sanchez has been linked with a move back to Barcelona after the Catalan giants sold Neymar to PSG on Thursday for a world record fee. Likewise City would have no qualms about meeting Sanchez's demands - understood to be around £400,000-a-week.

Arsenal will face Leicester City on August 11, and the Gunners are unlikely to part with their main attacking threat after that, with few potential replacements still available.
