Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that he is uncertain whether the club can convince Alexis Sanchez to sign a new contract.

According to the information portal of the British "Daily Mail" in the "Arsenal" strongly trying to make with Sanchez new long-term contract.

The Chile forward missed pre-season after being granted extra time off following the Confederations Cup and has been ruled out of Friday's game due to an abdominal strain.

Arsene Wenger continues to insist Sanchez will not be sold this summer, and speculation has claimed he is now willing to remain at the club for one more season.

"Sanchez will not be available", said the Arsenal manager.

Ozil missed the Community Shield win over Chelsea on Sunday after taking a kick to the ankle in training, but hinted on Twitter that he should be fit to face Leicester.

"We didn't manage to do that last season so I'm not super optimistic in that regard, but we have the firm intention of not selling him".

When asked if Arsenal have received any bids from PSG for the 28-year-old, Wenger replied: "I can not tell you that". We think he will not play at Stoke.

However, reports in the Sun on Friday stated Arsenal will offer Alexis £300,000-a-week to try and keep him at the club and away from any potential suitors.
