No progress on Sanchez talks, says Wenger

Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain have previously been linked to the Chile global, while Manchester City are said to be considering a £60m swoop before the transfer window shuts in just over two weeks' time.

Sanchez has not played for the Gunners this season, returning late to training following his Confederations Cup exertions before missing the 4-3 win over Leicester with an abdominal strain.

Arsenal have been consistent throughout the summer in saying they will not sell Alexis to a local rival, despite the 28-year-old entering the final 12 months of his contract and ready to walk for nothing next summer.

Sanchez has less than a year remaining on his contract with the Gunners and, although manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that the Chile global will stay at the club, City are still eager to see whether they can finalise a deal. "You have still that possibility and we work on that as well".

He wrote: "Some Arsenal supporters seem happy to say, "Alexis Sanchez is a great guy, he's a model pro" but I am sorry, he is not".

"But first of all it doesn't mean the players who are in the final year of their contract will not extend their contract".

He said the declaration will also allow access to needed funding for tools such as prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs). Price said the administration has the resources it needs to combat the epidemic without formally invoking the emergency powers.

"But in this case, I think I prioritise the fact that he will be useful on the sporting side". "We have not progressed on that front".

"I think both players are heading for the exit door and they'll do it when Wenger decides not when they decide".

And Wenger again rejected comparisons with the situation Diego Costa is experiencing with Chelsea.

"It is better for the season and for our psychological comfort as managers", he said. However, Keown does believe the pair will remain as Arsenal players until the end of the season.

The Gunners' next outing will see them travel to Stoke on Saturday, with Wenger facing a selection poser regarding whether or not to draft Sanchez into his plans for the trip to the bet365 Stadium - a notoriously tricky hunting ground for his side.
