Alexis Sanchez training again

Alexis Sanchez returned to Arsenal training on Friday as manager Arsene Wenger maintains his stance that the forward will not be sold.

Alexis Sanchez training again

The Chile international has been linked with a move away from the club this summer with less than a year remaining on his current deal at the Emirates Stadium and could walk away for free at the end of the upcoming season.

Wenger has insisted several times that Sanchez will not be sold, although links with Manchester City continue.

Sanchez missed Arsenal’s scintillating start to the new Premier League season, an abdominal injury forcing him to sit out the 4-3 victory over Leicester. The 28-year-old watched from the stands as Olivier Giroud’s late header earned the Gunners three points.

Rumors persist that Sanchez will leave before the window closes, with Wenger suggesting he will also miss the trip to Stoke next weekend.

Asked if there was any update on Sanchez’s situation, Wenger replied: “No. He practiced well today, this morning, had a good session for the first time because he had a little muscular strain. He is focused and happy in the dressing room because we won the game.”

While Arsenal won just their second opening fixture in the last eight years, they were pushed all the way by the Foxes, who had led twice during a frenetic evening at the Emirates Stadium.
