Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger has defended Alexis Sanchez and insisted the Arsenal forward's omission from the starting line-up at Chelsea was "nothing to do with the transfer market".
Speaking after the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg stalemate at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, when Sanchez came off the substitutes' bench, Wenger said: "People don't know Alexis Sanchez.
"The performance of Alexis Sanchez and the commitment does not depend on the duration of his contract, just depends on the fact when he's on the football pitch he wants to play.
