Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits he's "not super optimistic" about keeping hold of Alexis Sanchez. "He had a scan two days ago and he's out for a while", the Guardian quoted Wenger as saying.

Wenger though stressed on the fact that Sanchez remained "focused" on playing for Arsenal this season.

Elsewhere, Wenger has ruled out a move for Leicester wide man Mahrez after insisting the Gunners were "never close" in their pursuit of the player, per Jon Paul of the Leicester Mercury: "We were never close".

Alexis Sanchez' future is still in doubt as Arsenal are in a diffcult situation.

For us Alexis Sanchez is a loss, of course. "We have all the other players prepared in preseason and they are all ready".

On Sanchez and Ozil's final year of contract, Wenger said: "When a player goes into the final year of their contract we will try to extend the contract because there is no reason we shouldn't do it, but we are not there yet".

Joe Mauer cleared the bases with a double to get the Twins on the board and Eddie Rosario crushed a game-tying homer. Reliever Daniel Stumpf gave up an RBI single to Jason Castro in the fifth, giving Minnesota an 8-6 lead.

Wenger would rather add players than lose them at this time due to activities from rivals.

Speaking after Arsenal beat Chelsea on penalties at Wembley, Wenger revealed he was looking to trim his squad before the transfer window closes, but he said no departures were now imminent. "He's very conscious of his qualities, he was not always".

Wenger hinted his team for Leicester clash could be similar to the one which won the Community Shield against Chelsea on penalties.

"After that, let's take it game by game - go to Stoke - then to Liverpool, who are as well one of the teams who want to win the Premier League". "I just think we are not open - what I said to you many times - to any offers, anyway".

Some may disagree with that sentiment and feel Arsenal could do with the addition of the 2015-16 PFA Players' Player of the Year, who has stood out as one of the Foxes' elite stars in recent years.
