Sanchez "half in, half out" of Arsenal, says Wenger


This prompted City to drop their interest in a January move for the Arsenal forward with the intention on gambling on Sanchez turning United down and waiting until the summer to make the switch to Eastlands for free at the end of his Arsenal contract.

"If he has an option now to go from Arsenal to Manchester City or Manchester United, as a footballer who wanted to win trophies and be judged on trophies, Manchester City looks like the place to go".

But with the player's future still unresolved, Wenger has opted to leave the player back in London for his side's trip to Bournemouth. "His situation is not completely decided one way or the other, so I left him at home".

City are willing to pay Sanchez £285,000-a-week while United are happy to go over £300,000-a-week in order to usurp their Manchester rivals.

When asked whether news was imminent, Wenger told Sky Sports: "Yes, [but] don't read too much into it because I don't know what way it'll go".

"It could happen today, tomorrow or not at all".

Arsene Wenger admits he may need a replacement for Alexis Sanchez. "It was hard for him because he was on standby a little bit".

After a quiet start, the second half burst into life when Arsenal took the lead after 52 minutes, Hector Bellerin on target after Iwobi had put him through one-on-one with Begovic, who got a hand to the strike but could not stop it.

"We haven't created enough with the possession we had".

"Overall it was a tough game for us". Not sharp enough to create chances. It's very frustrating and very disappointing, a very disappointing result for us, especially when you're 1-0 up. Overall we have to look at it in a very objective and harsh way we made mistakes we should not have made. Bournemouth, meanwhile, climb to 13th but remain just four points above the bottom three.

"It's a great sign for us, it has built confidence".

"We had to win the game".
