Arsenal have reportedly sent team doctors to Chile for the confirmation of want away forward, Alexis Sanchez’s illness.
The 28-year-old Chilean posted on his Instagram page last week, a photo of himself with the caption “sick”, prompting rumours that the forward is trying to avoid resuming training at Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger updated reporters about Sanchez yesterday, after Arsenal’s 5-2 victory over Benfica in the Emirates cup, saying “He has flu.”
“I had him on text (on Friday), he will come back as soon as possible. We were in touch with him and his doctor. No basic problem except he should come back tomorrow (Sunday) but now he comes back Tuesday.”

Sanchez, who has been reportedly linked with a move to Man City, has expressed his quest for Champions League football, something Arsenal won’t provide next season.
But, Arsene Wenger remains keen over Sanchez’s future, insisting the forward will see out his current contract at the Emirates, should he not sign a new deal.
