Speculation has surrounded both Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alexis Sanchez this summer
Saturday, July 15, 2017
Arsene Wenger has made it clear Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will ‘100 per cent’ say at Arsenal this summer despite rumours linking the England winger with a move away from the Emirates.
Oxlade-Chamberlain is said to be frustrated by his contract situation in north London, with no progress made on talks concerning a new deal, with his current one expiring at the end of the 2017/18 campaign.
But despite rumours suggesting he could leave this summer, Arsenal head coach Wenger has emphatically denied such reports.
Asked whether Oxlade-Chamberlain will stay with the Gunners, Wenger said: “Yes, 100 per cent I expect him to stay.
“There is a lot of speculation, but no matter what happens he will stay.”
Wenger also spoke out about the future of star attacker Alexis Sanchez, who has been the centre of speculation since the final months of last season.
Sanchez is said to want a new contract to reward his good performances, and could seek a move elsewhere if he is not handed one.
Wenger made it clear no deal has yet been reached, despite reports suggesting otherwise.
“A lot that comes out about Sanchez isn’t completely right,” he continued. “No, that is not the case.”
