Wenger: Alexis has flu, 'staying' at Arsenal

Boss Arsene Wenger will let the Chilean return to training late and once again insisted that he will not be leaving the Emirates this summer.

Wenger signed a new deal himself at the end of last season after months of speculation, but he believes the future of his players will not affect on-pitch performances.

"The players who have one year of contract have to respect their contract and play out their contract". You want to play and do well.

Asked whether Sanchez has told him he wants to leave, Wenger added: 'I cannot reveal what he says, I can't reveal secret conversations'.

NAIJ.com gathered that Arsenal will offer the player a one-year contract at £300,000 a week and a promise to review the situation next summer.

Alexis was not involved in this weekend's Emirates Cup as his return to training following global duty Confederations Cup was delayed due to illness, as speculation of an exit from the Gunners continues to surround the exciting forward.

"When you're a football player you want to go out and play and do as well as you can". What has that to do with the length of your contract? It's normal. Nobody knows if Sanchez will not extend his contract with us as well here.

"One day he will go".

But Gibbs, who was ill, Francis Coquelin, who needs a scan on an ankle ligament injury, and Shkodran Mustafi, who is only just back in training after the Confederations Cup, are all unlikely to face Chelsea in the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday. "Not an issue. I think it's an ideal situation".

Lacazette and Kolasinac remain the only two new arrivals so far this summer but Wenger said the Gunners are still looking to add more recruits, even though he would not be drawn on a move for Monaco forward Lemar.
