Alexis Sanchez has been left out of Arsenal's squad for the Premier League match against Bournemouth on Sunday, amid interest in the forward from Manchester City and Manchester United.

The Chile international’s contract at Arsenal expires at the end of the season, and manager Arsene Wenger has accepted Sanchez could leave in January.

“He’s being vague. We have left him at home because of the situation,” Wenger told broadcaster Sky Sports at Bournemouth. “I still don’t know what is going to happen.”

Sanchez was only a substitute in Arsenal's League Cup semifinal match against Chelsea on Wednesday.He has been at Arsenal since 2014.
