Arsene Wenger has insisted that Arsenal have no intention of selling Alexis Sanchez this summer.

The Chile international’s future has been a relentless source of speculation this summer after he entered into the final 12 months of his contract.

The 28-year-old is currently enjoying an extended summer holiday after his involvement in the Confederations Cup with Chile in Russia.

There has been plenty of speculation linking Sanchez with a move away from Arsenal in recent weeks but Wenger is adamant that the player will not be sold this summer.

Wenger said, as quoted by Sky Sports: “The decision has been made and we will stick to that. The decision is not to sell.”

Arsenal are set for a season without Champions League football next term after they finished fifth in the Premier League table.

However, Wenger’s men did end the last campaign on a high by beating Chelsea in the FA Cup final to win the trophy for the third time in four years.

Arsenal will be aiming to challenge for the Premier League title next season after not having lifted the trophy since 2004.
