Alexis Sanchez will miss the start of the Premier League season with an abdominal injury.

Arsenal could be taking a risk keeping Alexis Sanchez until the end of his contract as he might not give it his all at the risk of an injury wrecking his transfer chances, according to Danny Murphy.

"He had a little abdominal strain that he caught on Sunday morning in training and he had a scan two days ago", Wenger told a news conference.

Elsewhere, Wenger has ruled out a move for Leicester wide man Mahrez after insisting the Gunners were "never close" in their pursuit of the player, per Jon Paul of the Leicester Mercury: "We were never close".

The leader of "Arsenal" Alexis Sanchez could become the highest paid player in the English Premier League.

"Some you know about and that's very hard for a group of players to cope with that - and some other reasons we will talk about on another day". Now, will we manage to extend his contract?

Wenger also dismissed Chelsea's reported interest in Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, saying he is still firmly in his first-team plans. I personally think he's a hugely talented player and he's on the way up. "He is on the way up and he will continue to move up because that potential is there", Wenger said. He's today very conscious of his qualities as well, something he was not always.

Ozil is a doubt against Leicester, however, along with Aaron Ramsey, Per Mertesacker and Shkodran Mustafi, while Laurent Koscielny is suspended.

Now Sanchez is a hard choice - to sign the main contract of his life or go to another club who set themselves more ambitious goals.

Wenger said: "I personally am convinced that will happen soon", with reference to Corinne Diacre, who manages second-tier French team Clermont Foot.

'I can take a gamble on one, maybe maximum two, but I focus more on the players who had the right number of competitive minutes in recent weeks'.
