Sanchez saga won’t ruin Arsenal –Wenger

Arsene Wenger insists the Alexis Sanchez transfer saga won ’t be a distraction to Arsenal this season despite the Chile forward ’ s refusal to sign a new contract, AFP reports.

Sanchez is out of contract at the end of the forthcoming season and he has shown no signs of accepting Arsenal’s offer of a lucrative new deal as he tries to engineer a transfer to a club in the Champions League.

Man City , Chelsea, PSG, Bayern and Juventus have all been linked with Sanchez , but Wenger appears determined to hold onto the 28 - year -old for the last year of his deal in the hope he can persuade him to stay for the long - term .

Arsenal midfielders Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade- Chamberlain are also in the final years of their contracts, yet when Wenger was asked if he was concerned, he made it clear he expects his players to stay committed .

“When you are a player you perform until the last day of the contract . Do you really think you sit in the dressing room before a game and say ‘oh I’ ve only got a year to go on my contract so I won ’t play well’ ,” Wenger said.
