Guide "Gunners" are ready to make a player the highest paid player in Arsenal but in the entire Premier League.

Arsenal have received a triple injury boost ahead of their Premier League season opener against Leicester City after Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Per Mertesacker returned to first-team training on Thursday (10 August).

Spaniard Iborra has been ruled out of the trip to the Emirates Stadium with a groin strain and joins centre-back Robert Huth and midfielder Danny Drinkwater on the sidelines.

Kelechi Iheanacho has come to Leicester for a lot of money and, having predominantly come off the bench at Manchester City, it will be interesting to see if he can have an impact from the start for the Foxes.

"Maybe I made a mistake", Wenger said after Arsenal beat Chelsea on penalties in last weekend's Community Shield. He had the scan two days ago. "I can take a gamble on one, maybe maximum two", Wenger said.

Arsenal is set to receive an £80 million (about $104 million) bid from Paris Saint-Germain for Alexis Sanchez, according to reports.

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.

Sanchez's last game was the Confederations Cup final for Chile on July 2 and he was given an extended summer break.

"I think he had in his career some bad moments because he had some small injuries", the manager added.

"I don't look at Arsenal and feel they're Premier League contenders", Redknapp told Sky Sports News on Tuesday.

"I have plenty of uncertainties about the players who didn't play against Chelsea", he said.

"Overall I believe that it's down to us".

"To win like we did will only strengthen it and overall we have good ingredients in the squad and it is a good opportunity again to show it away from home".
