It is a major boost for Arsenal fans, who will be delighted to hear that the Chilean has returned to training and will be hoping that his return means he will remain at the Emirates for the rest of the season.
Pushed on whether the club had received any offers for Sanchez, specifically from Paris Saint-Germain, Wenger said: 'No, I didn't speak to Nasser (Al-Khelaifi, PSG chairman).
"He had a little abdominal strain that he caught on Sunday morning in training. he had the scan two days ago". Let's not forget that Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Antonio Conte's Chelsea are all interested in him as his future remains a mystery (Arsenal are also trying to retain him).
For us Alexis Sanchez is a loss, of course. "I think if you read the French papers, they are on Mbappe's case to finish their transfer market". But we have all the other players prepared in pre-season and they are all ready.
Arsenal rejected a £25m bid from Chelsea for Oxlade-Chamberlain this week, but Stamford Bridge boss Antonio Conte is determined to strengthen his squad before the transfer deadline.
The Sun say the injury plagued star thinks his time at Arsenal is coming to an end. "I rate him as a player, but we have similar types with Alex Iwobi, Jack Wilshere back, Mesut Ozil. we have plenty of the same type of players". "He is on the way up and he will continue to move up because that potential is there", Wenger said. "He's very conscious of his qualities, he was not always".
I was not bored, you cannot feel that in one of the prettiest stadiums there is.
"I will focus more on the players who had the right number of competitive minutes in recent weeks".
