Arsenal will not sell Alexis Sanchez unless they have a replacement lined up. The position is the same as it was during the summer when Arsenal declined to sell Sanchez to Manchester City when they couldn't finalize a £92 million deal with Monaco for Thomas Lemar.

Arsenal is attempting to sign Malcom of Bordeaux.

“He’s a good player but at the moment nothing is happening there,” Wenger said of Malcom. “We are not on that case at the moment.”

Wenger was asked about signing a replacement.

“Look, it’s the case now,” Wenger replied. “You sum it up very well.” Wenger added that he wanted a quick resolution to the saga. “Yes, of course,” he said.
