It has been claimed that there is the growing feeling around the club that Sanchez could hand in a transfer request and make life hard for the Gunners in the final weeks of the transfer window after failing so far to get his desired move to Manchester City or Paris Saint-Germain.

Speaking at his post-match news conference, Wenger said of Sanchez's situation: "There's no development, it's always the same".

The wantaway Chilean forward is ready to make his demand official by slapping in a transfer request if Wenger refuses his plea to leave the Emirates on good terms.

Sanchez is expected back in training on Sunday after being given extended holiday following Chile's Confederations Cup campaign, although an Instagram post on Thursday in which he stated he was "sick" has cast some doubt over his return to the first team .

Monaco have spent all summer fielding interest in their top stars from the biggest clubs in Europe following their Ligue 1 triumph last season.

"He has flu. He texted me to say he will come back as soon as possible". We're in touch with him and his doctor. That's why I prefer my side, ' he said. There's no basic problem. "He is flying back as soon as he is in a position to".

The striker's future remains far from certain, despite Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insisting that he will not be sold either to a Premier League rival or another major European club.

"If he decides to go, we'll wait for him with open arms at City", Bravo told 24 Horas .

However, with Cuadrado having only signed for Juventus in May for £17.3m, Arsenal may have to pay over the odds for a player who's past his prime, being 29-years-old. "We come out once it's done or not done", he said.
