Arsenal fans aren't buying Arsene Wenger's latest Alexis Sanchez update

"He has a little abdominal strain that he caught on Sunday morning in training, before he came to Wembley", Wenger told his weekly news conference. He had a scan two days ago and he's out for a while I don't know is it two weeks or one more week but he will not be available.

Wenger said: "I think if you read the French papers they are on Mbappe's case to finish their transfer market".

"It is a relief and I believe as well a reminder to the players that they have hurdles on the way and that we can get round it, like tonight so that is quite positive. I don't think I would have included him certainly on Friday night - I don't think I would have started him".

However, the report adds, the Ligue 1 outfit will no longer look to sign the Sanchez, as sources within the club categorically dismissed reports coming from the Chilean press, which suggested PSG were ready to table an £80m offer.

However, Wenger said: "He's an Arsenal player in the short term".

Rohit and Bumrah, on the other hand, played in the Champions Trophy and were rested for the series against West Indies. Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant, who were also part of the squad in that tour, have been left out as well.

The article credits both Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain with an interest in signing the forward, but Arsene Wenger is said to be increasingly confident that Sanchez will stay at the club.

Wenger led Arsenal to Community Shield success against Chelsea on Sunday, but a return to Premier League action sees the Frenchman limited by familiar fitness concerns. Mesut Ozil , Aaron Ramsey and Shkodran Mustafi are all doubts for the league curtain raiser as well.

Undermining Wenger's quest for harmony is the uncertainty surrounding several first-team players.

Arsenal have offered Alexis Sanchez a new contract worth £300,000 a week, according to reports in the British media.
