Arsene Wenger on Alexis Sanchez signing Arsenal deal

Arsene Wenger on Alexis Sanchez signing Arsenal deal”

We round up the latest Arsenal transfers rumours from around the British and European press on Friday, August 11.

Mail Online reports that the improved offer will see Sanchez earn £300,000-a-week at the Emirates if he puts pen to paper.

The Chilean global received extended leave, missing their pre-season tour of Australia and China due to worldwide duty for Chile which the South American side finish as runners-up to World Cup holders Germany.

Arsenal have been unable to reach an agreement with Sanchez over an extension to his current deal at Arsenal.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, though, has told SFR Sport that he is not "super optimistic" that Sanchez will sign a new contact.

Wenger, though, says that the 26-year-old has never figured in his recruitment plans as he already has several players on his books of a similar mould.

It is reported that Ozil, who has a year left to run on his current deal, looks as though he will accept the £225,000-a-week offer.

Arsene Wenger insists Arsenal were "never close" to doing a deal for Leicester's Riyad Mahrez, but has hinted at further movement. 'I rate him as a player but we have similar types with Alex Iwobi, Mesut Ozil and now Jack Wilshere back.

Newcastle are fearing they might miss out on signing Lucas Perez, according to the Daily Express.

But does Wenger have any sympathy?

Sanchez has an abdominal problem and won't play.

'I am fiercely ambitious and feel now is the time to move on to a new experience, ' he said in a statement issued at the end of May.

'We have not made a bid for him but personally I like the player, ' the Gunners manager said of the 2015/16 PFA Player of the Year.
