The Times say Arsène Wenger has again told Alexis Sánchez that Arsenal will not sell him to another English club this summer.

It comes after more reports that the Chilean forward, whose contract at the Emirates Stadium expires next year, could be on his way to Manchester City and is keen play under Pep Guardiola.

Gunners boss Wenger has repeatedly insisted that Sanchez will not leave the club for a Premier League rival.

The Times say Wenger has not ruled out a move to a foreign club if a big offer for Sanchez comes in, but that a sale to City or Chelsea, who have also been linked with the player, will not be sanctioned.

Sanchez returned to training on Tuesday and the Daily Mail claim his team-mates were left in no doubt that he wants to leave Arsenal.

Meanwhile, The Daily Mirror say Chelsea’s hopes of signing Italy international winger Antonio Candreva have been boosted because Inter Milan have lined up Lazio’s Keita Balde as a replacement for him.

The Daily Telegraph say Chelsea are considering creating a fitness regime for Diego Costa to keep his fitness high and increase the chances of the striker being sold.

And The Daily Express say AC Milan are only interested in a permanent deal despite being linked with a loan move for Costa.
