Arsene Wenger has confirmed a swap deal involving Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan is “likely to happen”.
Wenger said at his press conference to preview Saturday’s clash with Crystal Palace: “It is a story that is well documented. I am not to add to that.
“It can happen, it can as well not happen – it is at that stage. If it doesn’t happen he will play on Saturday.
“I work on transfers for 30 years, it is likely to happen but at any moment things can breakdown.”
