Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger denied reports Alexis Sanchez had told him he wants to leave the Premier League giants.
Sanchez is heavily linked with a move in the off-season, with Manchester City and Bayern Munich reportedly interested in the Chile star.
Asked on Tuesday if the 28-year-old had informed him his desire was to leave Arsenal, Wenger replied: “No.”
Wenger was speaking at a news conference in Sydney as Arsenal prepare to begin their pre-season tour without Sanchez, who is on a break after the Confederations Cup.
Amid City’s reported interest, Wenger again said he was unwilling to sell to a Premier League rival.
“It’s a continuity of what I said at the end of the season,” the Frenchman said.
