Sanchez trains with team amidst transfer rumors

Alexis Sanchez appeared fully focused on Arsenal and this weekend's visit to Bournemouth as he trained alongside Arsene Wenger on Saturday morning.

The Chilean's future at the Emirates is the subject of intense speculation after it emerged Manchester United are challenging fierce rivals City for his signature. Jose Mourinho had made an offer close to the Gunners' £35 million asking price for Sanchez, but he looked fit and ready for the trip to the south coast as he pictured being put through his paces at London Colney.  

The 29-year-old even appeared to take some advice from Wenger, who remains desperate to keep his star man, as he practiced his shooting at the club's base in St Albans on Saturday. Sanchez was caught on camera driving an effort towards goal, although his reaction suggested that his effort had not hit the back of the net.

The former Barcelona forward is a free agent this summer, but it is believed he remains keen on a move to league leaders City this month.
