With Alexis sanchez future in doubt , here is  what wenger told in  an interview with sfr sports

that Arsenal have the “firm intention” of not selling Alexis Sanchez this summer but he is “not super optimistic” of keeping him beyond this season.

Sanchez, 28, has been strongly linked with Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City and has less than a year remaining on his contract.

Arsenal have refused to consider selling the forward, who hit 24 goals in 38 league games last term, a tally bettered only by Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku in the English top flight.

However, Wenger said: “He’s an Arsenal player in the short term. Now, will we manage to extend his contract?

“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.”

Sanchez will miss Arsenal’s Premier League opener with Leicester City on Friday night due to an abdominal strain, with Wenger having said this week he is “out for a while.”

Foxes captain is eager to get things started after seven pre-season matches.

“It’s been a long pre-season and it’s always tough,” Morgan told lcfc.com. “Everyone’s raring to go.”

After a back injury limited Morgan’s end of 2016/17 he feels he has benefited from the time off recovering.

“To have that rest was important and I’ve come back into pre-season feeling good,” he said. “I’ve gotten stronger and stronger each week.”

But Sanchez is set to miss the opener, and potentially the trip to Stoke City next weekend.

“He had a scan two days ago and he’s out for a while,” manager Arsene Wenger toldarsenal.com. “We don’t know if it is two weeks or one more week but he will not be available.

“We think he will not play at Stoke. Alexis Sanchez is a loss but we have all the other players prepared in pre-season and they are all ready.”
