According to making the round, Arsenal are close to losing Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City as reports claim he close to finalising his transfer to Manchester in a stunning reunion with his old manager Pep Guardiola.
The Chile international’s future at the Emirates Stadium has been in serious doubt for much of the season just gone, with his Arsenal current contract due to expire in 12 months time.
Sanchez is more of an all-rounder and just had one of the seasons of his career with 30 goals and 13 assists in all competitions for Arsenal.
‘This summer, first of all, they will stay at the club and hopefully we can extend their contract,’ Wenger said.
‘You know, you cannot weaken the club and weaken the team. We want to strengthen the team…unless you find a player of the same calibre and they absolutely want to leave. I believe that at the moment we are not on that front. We are just focused on keeping the team together and see how to strengthen the team.
