Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said there is no update on the situation of Alexis Sanchez as the Chilean continues to be linked with a move away. The 23-year-old England worldwide has struggled to secure a regular place since arriving at Arsenal six years ago, but Wenger believes the winger has the potential to become a great player. But, according to the Mirror, Arsenal are anxious Sanchez, might revive his efforts to leave the club before the end of the month. He had a little abdominal strain that he caught on Sunday morning in training.

Wenger said the Chile worldwide would miss Arsenal's home fixture against Leicester City tomorrow as well as the trip to Stoke City on August 19. He had the scan two days ago. For us Alexis Sanchez is a loss, of course.

Furthermore, while the former Udinese and Barcelona striker has allegedly told his teammates that he is resigned to staying at the club this season before leaving for free next summer, City are still waiting in the wings ready to make a move.

The Arsenal boss, who signed a two-year contract extension at Emirates Stadium at the end of last season, told a Football Writers' Association event in London that he foresees changes in the way top-flight clubs are run.

However, Wenger was surprisingly upbeat over Sanchez's future.

"I felt that to lose tonight would have been bad for us because we had such good preparation and to sit there in the morning and think we had lost at home would have been awful", he said. I wouldn't have started him (on Friday) anyway.

"It's always possible when players are in final year of contract [to renew]", the Frenchman added.
