Arsenal anxious Alexis Sanchez could revive attempts to leave this month

Arsene Wenger's 21-year tenure as Arsenal manager has exposed him to furious protests from sections of the club's support adn last season was by far the most difficult

Wenger said the Chile global would miss Arsenal's home fixture against Leicester City on Friday as well as the trip to Stoke City on August 19.

After sitting out of Arsenal's Premier League opener against Leicester City with a dubious "abdominal strain", Alexis Sanchez has caused yet another ripple of consternation among concerned Gooners by Tweeting from Paris.

Tweeting from Paris, France - the location of Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain who have been linked with a move for the forward - hasn't gone down too well with the Arsenal faithful as they fear last season's top scorer could be on the move. "But we have all the other players prepared in pre-season and they are all ready".

The Chile global is in the a year ago of his contract at the Emirates Stadium and is rumoured to be interested in a move away.

Arsenal, meanwhile, will begin the season without Sanchez but new signing Alexandre Lacazette is set to make his Premier League debut.

'If you look at the number of players that are out on loan, they can call a few back, ' he said.

"I felt that to lose would have been bad for us because we had such good preparation and to sit there in the morning and think we had lost at home would have been awful", he said.

Neymar's £198m move to PSG appeared to have ended their interest in Sanchez, but the French side's relentless spending shows no signs of slowing.

"All is possible you know", he replied when asked whether the Chilean could commit to a new deal at the Emirates.

"He's going to be good enough this season to get a contract elsewhere".

He also dismissed media reports linking Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain with Chelsea. I think he will not play at Stoke, yes.
