Sanchez injury scare for Chile after suffering blow to ankle on verge of Confederations Cup opener

Date Posted,June 15, 2017

Alexis Sanchez has given Chile an injury scare ahead of their Confederations Cup opener against Cameroon on Sunday night.

The 28-year-old Arsenal marksman received a blow to the left ankle in training on Thursday.

Sanchez has been expected to spearhead Chile’s Confederations Cup challenge in Group B, where they will face Germany and Australia.

With a year left on his Gunners contract, his future is set to be decided once the tournament is over.

Meanwhile, Arsenal and Tottenham target Thomas Lemar is considering his Monaco future.

The £26million-rated midfielder, 21, has three years left on his current deal but has yet to enter into talks over an extension.

Lemar is believed to be open to a move to the Emirates where he would work with Arsene Wenger. A switch to Spurs, however, would give Lemar a return to the Champions League.

He would also be reunited with France team-mate Hugo Lloris. Lloris jokingly hinted last week that he has already tried persuading Lemar to choose Tottenham over Arsenal.

He said: “You are right to ask the question, but I cannot reply.”
