"I'm personally convinced that [a female manager in the Premier League] will happen soon", he said. "He is focused. Of course when you have treatment on a medical bench, it's not easy".

Wenger eventually signed a new two-year contract extension at the end of the season, but the damage had been done with the Gunners missing out on top four for the first time in 20 years.

And he remains one of Arsenal's most important players, capable of turning a game on its head with a single moment of inspiration.

"That's what I've read in the papers and on my side I've had no contact with Paris Saint-Germain".

However, his absence from the Community Shield, coupled with Wenger's revelation that he will miss the game against Leicester, and possibly Stoke, has further fuelled rumours over his future.

The Premier League's longest-serving manager also touched upon his indecision regarding extending his Arsenal contract last season, suggesting it created an unease amongst his players.


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits that he is "not super optimistic" about Alexis Sanchez's contract situation.

Sanchez has been mentioned as a target for PSG and Manchester City should he leave the club this summer but Wenger has maintained that he won't sell the forward.

With the season set to start in two days, clubs are busy trying to get the players they want.

With Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey also serious doubts for the season opener against the Foxes, Arsenal will have to rely on the likes of Alexandre Lacazette, Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi to lead their attack. "I think he will not play at Stoke, yes".

Arsenal, without Sanchez, will host Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Friday night, to kick off the new season.

"I have players coming back who have not played, like [Shkodran] Mustafi".
