Arsenal offer Alexis Sanchez new £300000-a-week contract

Arsenal offer Alexis Sanchez new £300000-a-week contract

Ozil and fellow midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also out of contract at the end of the season, and offers of more than £50m for either of them or Sanchez would test Wenger's resolve to keep hold of them.

Wage demands had reportedly been a huge sticking point for Sanchez, and Arsenal have now upped their offer from a previous one of £275,000 a week.

Arsenal are desperate to open the Premier League season strongly to put last season's negativity firmly behind them and justify the decision to hand Arsene Wenger a new two-year contract.

Arsene Wenger has refused to divulge whether Arsenal have received any offers for Alexis Sanchez this summer. "When you are not completely in or the players feel you are not completely in, it is hard to tell them we go (out to win)". Even if that takes over £80m, PSG believe they can get him.

"It's true that in recent years we have [often lost the opener], down to some special circumstances, sometimes because it's after the World Cup or after the European Championship when we have many players who were not ready to start the season", Wenger said this week.

The current contract Sanchez with Arsenal expires in the summer of 2018.

He did, however, provide another update: that Sanchez had suffered an abdominal strain which would see him miss their Premier League opener at home to Leicester on Friday evening.

Wagner Bowman Management Corp increased its position in shares of Hewlett Packard Enterprise by 12.5% in the first quarter. The sale was disclosed in a filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available through the SEC website .

In the case of Sanchez it's safe to say most Arsenal fans wouldn't have expected to see him playing in their season opener anyway, but probably because he would've been sold after returning from global action late in preseason.

When asked if Arsenal have received bids for Sanchez, Wenger replied: "I can not tell you that".

Sanchez's initial return to training was delayed by three days as he had an illness but his extended absence from the team will only flame the fires of speculation over his future.

"(PSG) are looking for (Kylian) Mbappe, that's what I read in the papers.

The final player who could miss out on Friday is Mesut Ozil as Wenger has confirmed the German playmaker is still feeling the effects of an ankle injury that kept him out of the Chelsea game at the weekend.

It's little wonder some of Europe's elite might look to poach the Chile global after Arsenal finished fifth in the Premier League last season.
