Paul Merson: Arsenal would let Alexis Sanchez join PSG tomorrow

PSG to test Arsenal's resolve with mega offer for Alexis Sanchez

Amid all the talk about new contracts and leaving Arsenal over the summer, Alexis Sanchez has been focusing on his private life.

Alexis Sanchez is now in the last years of his contract and fan dissent will quickly return if results go awry.

Wenger said yesterday 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".

Arsenal have refused to consider selling the forward, who hit 24 goals in 38 league games last term, a tally bettered only by Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku in the English top flight.

Ozil and fellow midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also out of contract at the end of the season, and offers of more than £50m for either of them or Sanchez would test Wenger's resolve to keep hold of them. They are on (Kylian) Mbappe's case, that's what I read in the papers.

"He had a little abdominal strain that he caught on Sunday morning in training. he had the scan two days ago".

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).

Wenger added: "For us Alexis Sanchez is a loss, of course".

"It is a relief and I believe as well a reminder to the players that they have hurdles on the way and that we can get round it, like tonight so that is quite positive". 'I have sympathy for him.

"Personally, I think he is a hugely talented player".

Wenger says Wilshere is not fully fit and that's why he wasn't included in their squad to face Leicester on Friday.

I was not bored, you cannot feel that in one of the prettiest stadiums there is.

'I have plenty of uncertainties about the players who didn't play against Chelsea (in the Community Shield),' said Wenger.
