Arsenal boss Wenger confident of Alexis stay: We're always texting

Wenger 'positive&apos Sanchez will remain at Arsenal

Arsene Wenger – in Australia for Arsenal's pre-season tour which continues on Saturday – is positive about Alexis Sanchez's

Wenger however remains confident that Sanchez will stay, and clarified earlier this week that the striker had not asked to leave Arsenal.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is said to be frustrated by his contract situation in north London, with no progress made on talks concerning a new deal, with his current one expiring at the end of the 2017/18 campaign.

Sanchez is set to enter the final year of his contract with the Gunners, and has so far resisted signing a new long-term deal reportedly worth in excess of £250,000 a week.

Manchester City are desperate to sign the 28-year-old, but Arsenal are unlikely to sanction a move to their Premier League rivals. "There is not a lot to resolve with the player".

Sanchez has not travelled with the Arsenal squad on their pre-season tour of Sydney and is now away on holiday having competed in the Confederations Cup with Chile earlier in the summer.

Berenguer-Napoli, sono due i nodi che frenano la chiusura della trattativa
Come riporta l'edizione odierna di Tuttosport , De Laurentiis sta rinforzando il Napoli trattenendo i migliori e mettendo a disposizione di Sarri pochi rinforzi, mirati.

And Wenger expects him to be ready for the start of the season less than a fortnight later.

Sanchez will team up with the Arsenal squad later this month ahead of the Community Shield against Chelsea in August. "My thoughts are always positive".

The midfielder was a regular starter for Bournemouth where he played on loan last season but broke his leg midway through.

"You can't tell them they are not having a holiday and must come back and continue, it's impossible".

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been texting Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez in an attempt to try and keep the highly-rated winger at the club, according to the Sun.
