Alexis Sanchez finally admits he wants Arsenal transfer exit

Arsenal

Sanchez is expected to answer questions from local media at the "Playing for a dream" tournament as speculation over his future continues, with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger revealing that he has had "positive" signs from the Chilean over recent text messages exchanged between the two.

"Of course (he will stay)", Wenger said as Arsenal began their pre-season tour with a win over Western Sydney Wanderers.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has claimed "positive" talks with star forward Alexis Sanchez over his future at the Emirates, despite reports the Chile global is set to leave this summer.

The 28-year-old is holding out for closer to £400,000-a-week but could be swayed to remain at Emirates Stadium after Arsenal showed intent to build a title-challenging squad with the signing of Alexandre Lacazette. "There's not a lot to resolve at the moment with the player".

Sanchez's future has been in the balance since the window opened for business, having been allowed to enter the final 12 months of his contract.

"Players like Alexis Sanchez played the whole season, finished the season really exhausted and went off to play in the Confederations Cup", Wenger added.

"It also depends on the shape they come back in".

Wenger also said he believes Jack Wilshere, who spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, will remain an Arsenal player next season, despite interest from Sampdoria among others, according to Sky in Italy.

Wilshere will be welcomed back into the fold provided he is ready to fight for his place in the starting XI.

Arsenal have had several offers rebuffed by Sanchez and his advisors but manager Arsene Wenger has spoken of his confidence that he can keep hold of his star man.
