Manchester City to lodge £60m offer to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal

"We have not progressed on that front", Wenger said in a news conference before Arsenal head to Stoke City on Saturday.

Gunners are still unaware of Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's future and are planning to bring in at least 2 new players before the end of this summer's transfer window.

"At the moment, he is a player who goes into the final year of his contract and prepares for the season".

Arsenal began their campaign with a 4-3 home victory over Leicester City last weekend.

Wenger does not feel that any player who is in the past year of his contract gives less on the pitch - the Frenchman feels the opposite is true. "You have still that possibility and we work on that as well".

Sanchez made no secret of his desire to leave the Emirates as he seeks to win Europe's biggest prize.

"But in this case, I think I prioritise the fact that he will be useful on the sporting side".

"We have not made any progress on the other front".

KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists are 'criminals and thugs'
This is a time to lay blame - to lay blame on bigotry , to lay blame on white supremacists, on white nationalism and on hatred. Mr Trump initially denounced what he called "this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides".


"Yes, I am very happy about that", said Wenger.

"I think both players are heading for the exit door and they'll do it when Wenger decides not when they decide".

"It's important you have a serene atmosphere inside and clarity about your commitment", he said.

According to reports from Daily Star, Gunners are ready to let Alexis leave the club but will not sell him to their league rivals Manchester City, who reportedly will make a £60million move later this summer.

Arsenal have already signed a top center forward this summer by luring Lacazette and they do not really need another striker.

The former England worldwide doesn't think either player will sign a contract extension with the Gunners.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has started Arsenal's opening two fixtures of the season and Wenger is adamant he too is not about to say his goodbyes.

Meanwhile, German defender Shkodran Mustafi and Frenchman Francis Coquelin are in contention for a place in the side to play Stoke.
