Sanchez returned to training at Arsenal last week and looks set to stay at the Emirates Stadium, although it is unclear if he will sign a new contract.
"I'm very happy because we won the trophy we wanted to win and because I believe the quality of the game was very good", Wenger said.
The report even claims he has been hinting to friends and team-mates that he will stay, and indeed was pictured kissing the badge during training last week.
"Or, more likely, Arsenal will let Sanchez head north, and they'll bring in a French teenager".
Arsene Wenger has been consistent with his stance, repeatedly stating that Alexis will be going nowhere this summer, and he appears to have the support of the Arsenal board on that. We'll see but he has a little chance of playing on Friday night.
Wenger will lead his side out against Antonio Conte's men on Sunday, as the season begins with the Community Shield.
"You can not go into the season and think that", Wenger said.
Arsenal will be competing in the UEFA Europa League but will surely be tempted to give their younger players that stage to prove their worth.
Asked which teams he think will miss out on the top four this season, Owen told the Premier League's official website: "Arsenal should be concerned that a bad start to the season will have a negative impact".
"I was always against it", he said.
"We were missing a lot of players but it's great to see that everybody is ready to compete for places in the squad for every game, " Cech told BT Sport 1. "I can understand that you want to kill me but, at the moment, I survive".
