It's little wonder some of Europe's elite might look to poach the Chile global after Arsenal finished fifth in the Premier League last season.
The 28-year-old will miss Friday night's Premier League opener against Leicester and next weekend's match at Stoke with an abdominal injury.
Sanchez, the Frenchman says, is suffering with an abdominal issue. They are on (Kylian) Mbappe's case, that's what I read in the papers.
"He practised well, had a good session for the first time because he had a little muscular strain".
Pushed on whether the club had received any offers for Sanchez, specifically from Paris Saint-Germain, Wenger said: 'No, I didn't speak to Nasser (Al-Khelaifi, PSG chairman).

The same report also claims that Chelsea were keen on signing Drinkwater last summer, with the Blues having landed his former Leicester team-mate N'Golo Kante.
Here's the thing, Alexis Sanchez is the original front-man for Arsenal, and the club has no one else good enough on the team to replace him should he fail to perform.
"I don't know if it is two weeks or one more week, but he will not be available". But we have all the other players prepared in pre-season and they are all ready.
Wenger also dismissed Chelsea's reported interest in Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, saying he is still firmly in his first-team plans.
This new "injury" has seen him watch Arsenal's opener from the stands and he is also forecast to miss Arsenal's next game at Stoke, which is also very odd as we have previously seen Sanchez take to the field when practically wearing crutches as he hates missing any chance to play. They said: Pep Guardiola is desperate to add the Chilean to his squad - but has come up against stubborn resistance from Arsenal.
"He is today very conscious of his qualities as well, which he was not always, and I personally believe he will be a very great player".
