Sanchez to miss Arsenal's EPL opener against Leicester

Sanchez to miss Arsenal's EPL opener against Leicester”

Wenger said Wednesday that Sanchez sustained an abdominal strain on Sunday - hours before Arsenal's win over Chelsea in the Community Shield at Wembley Stadium - and will be out for "two weeks or one more week".

Abdominal strain will keep star Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez out of their first English Premier League (EPL) football game against Leicester City on Friday, head coach Arsene Wenger has said.

On Sanchez and Ozil's final year of contract, Wenger said: "When a player goes into the final year of their contract we will try to extend the contract because there is no reason we shouldn't do it, but we are not there yet".

Sanchez's last game was the Confederations Cup final for Chile on July 2 and he was given an extended summer break. Personally I think he is a hugely talented player, he's on the way up and he will continue to move up because the potential is there.

"Alexis Sanchez is always a loss for us, of course".

Wenger admitted entering the new campaign without Sanchez is a blow for the Gunners but said he would not have featured against Leicester even if he had not suffered a set-back. "I don't think I would have included him certainly on Friday night - I don't think I would have started him".

"It doesn't surprise me that Arsene has reached out to him, they're not dissimilar in terms of outlook and Wenger may have seen something of himself in Jens". His initial return to training was delayed by three days, with Arsenal citing an illness, and now he is injured.

When asked if Arsenal have received any bids from PSG for the 28-year-old, Wenger replied: "I can not tell you that".

"I think he had in his career some bad moments because he had some small injuries", the Frenchman added.

"(PSG) are looking for (Kylian) Mbappe, that's what I read in the papers.

But he is no closer to shifting those deemed surplus to requirements as he believes many Premier League clubs are in the same position.

"Yesterday I had the managers' meeting and was talking with the other managers in the other clubs".
