Arsene Wenger in a heart felt interview to Arsenal’s official website spoke about the many things that have seemingly been bothering a lot of fans in the past couple of months.

Why are so many players into the final years of their contract, including Ozil and Sanchez?

Wenger clearly thinks that this is the way the transfer market is going to work in the coming times. The Gooners boss feels that the transfer fees for players have been rising like crazy with each passing year and in the future, it is going to be a trend where a player runs out his contract willingly in order to move to a different club.

What is the current status on Alexis Sanchez?

Arsenal FC’s official website also asked Wenger about the whole Sanchez scenario and how good is his health doing, to which the manager said that the Chilean will be back in the country on Monday and his involvement in the first week of the Premier League season will only be decided after assessing his physical state.

Whether Alexis Sanchez will stay at the Emirates in the coming season?

Wenger replied that he has made it clear that Sanchez is not going anywhere and will remain an Arsenal player in the upcoming season.
