Wenger on Alexis, Mbappe and the Ox

Arsene Wenger was asked about Alexis, Kyllian Mbappe and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain when he faced the media shortly after our 3-1 win over Western Sydney Wanderers.

Here’s how he responded:

on reports that Alexis has agreed a new deal…
No, a lot that comes out [about] Alexis doesn’t look completely right! No, that’s not the case.

on reports of a £123m offer for Mbappe…
That’s not true as well. People have a big imagination. What we know now about Mbappe is that it’s over £100m. After that it’s free to imagine what you want. But we have not made an offer. It looks like he will stay at Monaco [for one season]. Too much choice maybe, so in the end people don’t move!

on whether he expects the Ox to stay…
Yes, 100 per cent I expect him to stay. There is no speculation - no matter what happens he will stay.
