Alexis Sanchez Out of Arsenal's EPL Opener Due to Abdominal Strain

Arsene Wenger brokered a fragile truce with Arsenal's dissenting fans by winning the FA Cup, but has little margin for error ahead of Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester City.

With Alexis Sanchez likely to leave either this or next summer, securing Ozil's signature would be a huge boost for Arsenal and their future plans.

According to a report by The Sun, Arsenal are determined to retain Alexis Sanchez beyond the transfer window and have offered him a new £300,000-a-week contract to ward off the likes of Manchester City and PSG. "He had a scan two days ago and he's out for a while - I don't know if it two weeks or one more week, but he will not be available".

Sanchez was one of the best attacking players in Europe last season, scoring 30 goals and contributing 13 assists to Arsenal's cause. He is now appealing against a two-month prison sentence for assaulting a police officer past year and, because of that conviction, was banned from entering the United Kingdom for PSG's Champions League fixture against Arsenal last season.

"But I think Ozil will get better and will take on centre stage for Arsenal this season".

"It's a long time I didn't speak to Nasser, because it's certainly very busy to complete the transfer of Neymar and it's a long time that I didn't speak to him", he said. When a player is in the final year (of their contract) we will always try to extend.

Wenger led Arsenal to Community Shield success against Chelsea on Sunday, but a return to Premier League action sees the Frenchman limited by familiar fitness concerns.

"Plenty of uncertainties about players who didn't play against Chelsea - Ramsey, Ozil, Mertesacker".

With Laurent Koscielny suspended, Gabriel still nursing a knee injury and Shkodran Mustafi not yet match fit following his late arrival to pre-season training it means Wenger has limited options at the back.

"I will focus more on the players who had the right number of competitive minutes in recent weeks".
