Arsene Wenger has insisted that he is completely calm about Alexis Sanchez’s situation at Arsenal beyond the summer transfer window.
The Chile international’s future at The Emirates has been a relentless source of speculation in recent months as both he and Mesut Ozil approach the final year of their contracts at the club.
The fact that Sanchez is yet to sign a new deal with the Gunners has led to suggestions that he could be sold by Arsenal this summer, with the club reluctant to face the prospect of letting him leave for free next year.
However, Wenger has once again insisted that he is completely calm about Sanchez’s situation at The Emirates and is still hopeful that he will stay at the club.
Speaking at a news conference before Arsenal’s clash with Chelsea in the FA Cup final, Wenger said: “We have nobody at the end of their contract so that will be completely our decision.
“Therefore, I just believe that we, the club, have a big job to do during the summer because you want to keep players like Alexis and end all the speculation that could happen.
“Alexis is not at the end of his contract. I would just like to remind you that the end of his contract is 2018. So that’s a completely different situation.”
