“Overall he (Sanchez) looks in good shape,” Arsenal boss told Sky Sports.
“He has always been focused on his job. I don’t think he’s too much disturbed by all the noise – players at that level are used to it. Some deal better with it than others.
“He’s very focused, very happy. Doesn’t mean there’s no chance to extend his contract, though we haven’t managed to do it. We just want to focus as a team and not look too much at individual contracts.
“Alexis works very hard, gives so much and he looks ready. I’ll have to decide what I do but he’s ready to play.”
