Bournemouth, Uk: Alexis Sanchez was omitted from Arsenal’s squad to face Bournemouth on Sunday as speculation mounts over a January transfer to Manchester United or Manchester City. Sanchez, 29, did not even travel to the south coast for the lunchtime kick-off, with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger admitting he was left at home over his unresolved future. The Chile international has refused to sign a new Arsenal contract with his current deal expiring in the summer, and United and City are reportedly both keen on recruiting him this month.


Wenger, whose side are sixth in the Premier League table, confirmed before kick-off at Dean Court that he remained unsure on Sanchez’s future. “He’s being vague, we have left him at home because of the situation,” Wenger told Sky Sports. “I still don’t know what is going to happen.” Wenger admitted on Friday that Sanchez would not be signing a new deal, paving the way for him to leave the club in the current transfer window, adding that a bidding war could help Arsenal. Jose Mourinho labelled him a “phenomenal player” at his press conference later that day but both were tight lipped about a potential move for the forward. — AFP
