Arsenal boss Wenger attempts to convince star to stay via text

Alexis Sanchez has admitted for the first time that he wants to leave Arsenal in this summer's transfer window as he wants to play in the Champions League.

"Of course (he will stay)", Wenger said.

The Arsenal manager is not entertaining any talk of a summer move and insisted that he expects the player to honour his contract with the hope that he will sign an extension either before the start of the season or during the campaign.

The 28-year-old is back in his hometown of Tocopilla where he's visiting family and friends while also overseeing a youth football tournament which will take place over the weekend. "There's not a lot to resolve at the moment with the player".

"Players like Alexis Sanchez played the whole season, finished the season really exhausted and went off to play in the Confederations Cup", Wenger added.

She returned home and saw Roberts while still taking the medication Moxylong, which contained probenecid. Roberts is claiming that intense kissing led to his positive test back in March, according to Deadspin .

"I have spoken through text and it was very positive", Wenger told reporters in Sydney, Australia, on Saturday.

Sanchez will team up with the Arsenal squad later this month ahead of the Community Shield against Chelsea in August.

Wenger also said he believes Jack Wilshere, who spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, will remain an Arsenal player next season, despite interest from Sampdoria among others, according to Sky in Italy.

"In England you also have to consider players like Alexis Sanchez played the whole season, finished the season really exhausted and went off to play in the Confederations Cup".

"But once he is ready, when he comes back, he will not be far from with the team".
