Manchester City still confident of signing Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez

Conte anticipates the most hard season of his career and wants Chelsea to make additions to his small squad before the transfer window closes at the end of this month.

"It is as simple as that".

"You can not go into the season and think that (you will get into the Champions League by winning the Europa League)".

Sanchez is out of contract at the end of the 2017-18 campaign and the Chile worldwide has been heavily linked with Premier League rivals Manchester City.

"At Arsenal we're very much driven by our values, like giving young people a chance", he said.

Arsenal need reinforcements out wide, especially with contract rebel Alexis Sanchez all but set to bid adieu to Emirates.

"We know we have a duty to inform people but to talk about some things is not information anymore, it's suicide".

Conte led Chelsea with an impeccable defence and few teams could compete with the consistency of the London side.

Full-back Kieran Gibbs and midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are similarly out of contract at the conclusion of 2017-18 and Wenger also had no movement to report on the duo.

But he did say that he expects Spanish striker Lucas Perez to leave after a frustrating debut season. Fellow striker Robin van Persie spent eight years with Arsenal, scoring 96 goals in 194 outings and becoming the club captain in his final season before arriving at United in 2012.

"I will always play a team that has a good chance to win the next game", Wenger added. At some stage, too much competition is not competition any more.

"If he finds a satisfactory solution, at least for the short-term, we will do it".

Sanchez, Wilshere and Shkodran Mustafi are all short of fitness, having only just returned to training.

Wenger has been Gunners boss for 20 years and signed a two-year contract extension after winning the FA Cup for a record seventh time with May's 2-1 defeat of Chelsea.

After a commemoration of that sad event, the royalty, pomp and circumstance before and after the match make this more special than the normal Premier League match.
