Alexis Sanchez not in Arsenal squad for trip to Bournemouth

Alexis Sanchez not in Arsenal squad for trip to Bournemouth

After months of speculation claiming Sanchez could be on his way to Manchester City, reports on Sunday morning claim Jose Mourinho's United are suddenly in pole position to land the Chile forward.

Ozil, Sanchez and Jack Wilshere are all out of contract in the summer, meaning Arsenal could have faced a massive rebuilding project, though Wenger now thinks he can keep two of the three.

"A bidding war is always beneficial to the club who can take advantage of it but we are not in that".

"You might think his behaviour this season has been petulant, selfish, arrogant; but to me that suggests he's a frustrated victor who is desperate for trophies", Parker said.

"It will nearly be a relief once it is out of the way and he can concentrate on those players that he knows are going to be here for the foreseeable future".

Reports emerged on Friday that City had baulked at Arsenal's alleged demands of £35m (Dh176.5m) for the Chile worldwide in January, while agents are likely to receive another £5m on top, totaling a £40m deal, before the player's potential wages are taken into account. "I'm focused on Liverpool".

"At the general level, I can tell you that myself and the Manchester United owners, we do not believe a lot in the January market".

"Everyone knows the quality of Alexis - but it's Liverpool".

"Sanchez is an Arsenal player", he added. That is what I want to speak about. The important thing is what happens for 90 minutes on the pitch.

'He is a phenomenal player, but...'

Instead, the biggest test of any recruitment department is trying to find a quality forward who is going to be a regular source of goals - at a reasonable price - and that is precisely the task facing Arsenal if Sanchez does depart.

"I don't know if ethical or correct", he is quoted by MEN.

Guardiola said: "When we play Basel in the Champions League, he could be ready".

City also feel the player is determined to leave Arsenal come what may this month, so their stance could lead to him joining a rival club.

When asked by reporters if Sanchez will stay at Arsenal if a replacement is not brought in, Wenger said: "You sum it up very well". He's a great talent but whether he deserves a long contract having missed so much football is debatable, so I understand why Arsenal would be nervous about that.
