Arsenal fans don't believe the latest news about Alexis Sanchez

Martin Keown

Wenger said the Chile global would miss Arsenal's home fixture against Leicester City on Friday as well as the trip to Stoke City on August 19.

Arsene Wenger, the Gunners manager, has insisted Chilean striker Sanchez will remain at the Emirates Stadium this season and see out the rest of his contract, which expires next summer.

"He [Sanchez] had a little abdominal strain that he caught on Sunday morning in training, before he came to Wembley".

The Chile worldwide suffered an abdominal injury in training and could miss two weeks, while defender Laurent Koscielny is suspended for the visit of the Foxes.

"Maybe I made a mistake", Wenger said after Arsenal beat Chelsea on penalties in last weekend's Community Shield. His initial return to training was delayed by three days, with Arsenal citing an illness, and now he is injured.

Arsene Wenger believes the uncertainty about his future had a negative effect on his team's league campaign last season.

"For us, Alexis Sanchez is a loss of course but we had all the other players prepared in pre-season already and it can happen in preparation any way".

Geopolitical concerns continue to weigh on Wall Street amid an ongoing escalation in tensions between the US and North Korea. Japan is the world's biggest creditor country and there is an assumption investors there will repatriate funds in a crisis.

While a move to City can guarantee Champions League football, Sanchez will have to fight tooth and nail to get regular starts.

Arsenal have signed two players so far this summer as they prepare to try and challenge for the Premier League title this season.

Chelsea have reportedly stepped up their interest in Chamberlain as the Blues are desperate for a new addition.

Guide "Gunners" are ready to make a player the highest paid player in Arsenal but in the entire Premier League.

"I have players coming back who have not played, like [Shkodran] Mustafi".

"I think he had in his career some bad moments because he had some small injuries", the manager added.
