Last season was by far the most hard of Wenger's 21-year tenure as manager, with Arsenal's on-pitch travails exposing him to furious protests from sections of the club's support.

"That's what I've read in the papers and on my side I've had no contact with Paris Saint-Germain".

"A lot (of the trouble) was created by my own situation".

Alexis [Sanchez] will not be available for example, so I can not go into the game with too many uncertainties. "I have players coming back who have not played like [Shkodran] Mustafi and Sanchez".

The Mail Online understands that Arsenal are readying a contract offer that would make Alexis Sanchez the highest paid player in the Premier League.

Arsenal have offered Alexis Sanchez a new contract worth £300,000 a week, according to reports in the British media.

In comments to SFR Sport this week, Wenger admitted he was feeling "not super optimistic" about the Chilean superstar, scorer of 30 goals last season, signing a new deal.

They defeated Chelsea again when the teams renewed acquaintances at Wembley in last Sunday's Community Shield, winning a penalty shootout 4-1 after a 1-1 draw.

The Gunners themselves have invested strangely well too, bringing in Bosnian specimen Sead Kolasinac in from Schalke on a free, and more remarkably, breaking their own transfer record, and splashing out £52m on French goalscoring predator Alexandre Lacazette.

"Plenty of uncertainties about players who didn't play against Chelsea", Wenger added. Gabriel and Santi Cazorla are definitely out.

Sanchez returned late to pre-season training with the Gunners due to his commitments at the Confederations Cup with Chile and will now have his start to the new Premier League campaign delayed. We're committed to mounting a sustained league challenge and that will be our focus.
