The Chile global has been increasingly linked with Bayern Munich in the past few days as he enters the final 12 months of his own deal at the Emirates, but Wenger added that he didn't believe that the 28-year-old's situation was similar to his, given that he has one year left on his contract.

"Alexis is all right". "He needs to go for some tests and we will see how well he comes out of that".
