Champions League has lost some of its sparkle - Wenger

Despite allowing him to leave for £5million, Wenger says Gibbs can be proud of his Arsenal career.

There is some pressure on Arsenal as they wrap up the Premier League weekend after all of their title rivals picked up three points with varying degrees of alacrity.

For many years Wenger has been mocked for becoming a parody of himself by signing youngsters from Europe, usually France, when they were totally unknown.

"Many times he was a regular player here, but he had some fitness worries as well".

Wenger noted that Germany's chancellor, Angela Merkel, had recently urged Uefa and Federation Internationale de Football Association to introduce new rules to control the spending on transfer fees.

"I've said many times, it's down to whether he can remain fit", the Frenchman said.

The Gunners man - who's started every game in the Premier League so far this season - suffered a groin injury during the stalemate with Chelsea last week. "You choose only one or two games". You know where to be at the right moment to anticipate. It is only to the advantage of some clubs who can deal with the [financial fair play] rules in a legal way.

Arsenal look set to lose Alexis Sanchez in such circumstances in 2018, with Mesut Ozil also in a similar position.

The 28-year-old missed the start of the season through injury and has been used sparingly since his deadline day move to Manchester City collapsed after Arsenal failed to convince Thomas Lemar to join from Monaco.

"Not at all, that's going to very quick conclusions", Wenger told a news conference when asked if there is concern regarding the player's focus.

"So what happens? The club can not sell and doesn't extend the contract, so more and more players are going into the final year".

The Gunners boss believes that more of the world's top players will leave clubs for free in the next few years as clubs are unable to afford the transfer fees and the selling clubs also can not cater to the players' demands to increase their salaries.
