Arsenal vs Leicester City

Arsene Wenger Arsenal Leicester City Premier League

Sanchez has one year left on his current contract but Arsene Wenger has said that last season's top scorer will be at the club this season, even if there is no progress on an extension to his deal.

Leicester City have had a busy transfer window so far, with Kelechi Iheanacho their biggest signing.

Wenger said the forward had sustained an abdominal injury and was likely to miss both tomorrow's Premier League opener at home to Leicester City and the trip to Stoke City on August 19.

"He is an intelligent player who can integrate our game well as we have a game backed on mobility, technique.

You've got to be patient sometimes with this formation we're playing, you play a different style of football, that's what we're learning still and we're getting better".

The French striker, for whom Arsenal paid £52m, finished with 28 goals from 30 games as Lyon finished fourth in Ligue 1 last season.

"I think he had in his career some bad moments because he had some small injuries", Wenger said.

Club record signing Alexandre Lacazette is set to make his competitive debut at the Emirates as he should lead the line up front with Olivier Giroud named among the substitutes. "I can take a gamble on one, maybe maximum two", Wenger said.

Arsenal have of course been dogged in their determination to keep Alexis, and have seen the likes of PSG and Barcelona linked with the player, along with the more remote possibilities of Chelsea and Manchester United. "Watching them in training and talking to them I think we have the balance right as well, but we all know it is a results business and we must be ready for Friday".

"They don't like to move away usually, but he was different".

Riyad Mahrez looks on during the UEFA Champions League Quarter Final first leg match between Club Atletico de Madrid and Leicester City at Vicente Calderon Stadium on April 12, 2017 in Madrid, Spain.

They're top-level players, they want to go to the World Cup, but he'll get a number of games here, and he'll fight with Petr Cech.
