Alexis Sanchez has admitted for the first time that he wants to leave Arsenal in this summer's transfer window as he wants to play in the Champions League.

Alexis Sanchez has not agreed to sign a new contract with Arsenal, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is definitely staying at the club, manager Arsene Wenger has revealed.

Recent reports suggested £80million could be enough to tempt them into letting Sanchez go, but it seems highly unlikely that clubs will pay that amount for him as he has just a year left on his contract and could move on a free next summer.

Manchester City are desperate to sign the 28-year-old, but Arsenal are unlikely to sanction a move to their Premier League rivals. "My thoughts are always positive".

But Sanchez will return to training at the end of the month. "There's not a lot to resolve at the moment with the player".

Reflecting on the rumours, though, Wenger said, as reported by the Gunners' official website: "Yes, 100% I expect him to stay".

"You can not tell them that they are not having a holiday and must come back and continue, it's impossible", Wenger added.

Meanwhile, fellow star Mesut Ozil has also implored the Chilean to stay at the Emirates.

One player whose future is less clear is Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere.

"But once he is ready, when he comes back, he will not be far from practising with the team".

He said: "Players like Alexis Sanchez played the whole season, finished the season really exhausted and went off to play in the Confederations Cup".
