Sanchez will become a free agent when his contract expires in the summer and it has been suggested that Wenger may decide to sell him in January, rather than lose the Chile international for nothing in the summer.

However, when asked on Friday if Aubameyang was a possible Arsenal target, Wenger said: "No, it is not a possibility."

One player Wenger would like to see at the club come the end of the transfer window is forward Theo Walcott.
