The 67-year-old Frenchman said: "I had an impact on the season, because at some stage the players came to see me and said: 'What's going on boss? Of course when you have treatment on medical bench it's not easy".

Wenger eventually signed a new two-year contract extension at the end of the season, but the damage had been done with the Gunners missing out on top four for the first time in 20 years.

According to a report by The Sun, Arsenal are determined to retain Alexis Sanchez beyond the transfer window and have offered him a new £300,000-a-week contract to ward off the likes of Manchester City and PSG.

The Chile global suffered an abdominal injury in training and could miss two weeks, while defender Laurent Koscielny is suspended for the visit of the Foxes.

"I love this club and I'm looking forward to the future with optimism and excitement".

"We need to transform the quality of the preparation into points and that is, of course, a pragmatic view, but what matters is we win the game and start in a strong way, which we didn't do past year". "I think he will not play at Stoke, yes". "In some games, we will play with four at the back and some with three, but at the start of the season we will certainly play with three".

When asked if Arsenal have received any bids from PSG for the 28-year-old, Wenger replied: "I can not tell you that".

Chelsea have reportedly stepped up their interest in Chamberlain as the Blues are desperate for a new addition.

"He's very conscious of his qualities, he was not always".

"Plenty of uncertainties about players who didn't play against Chelsea", Wenger added.

Arsenal are slated to take on reigning Premier League champions Leicester at the Emirates Stadium on August 12. "I believe he will be a very great player".
