Following an extended break over the summer, and a bout of flu leading to a bit more time off, Alexis Sanchez returned to training with Arsenal on Tuesday as planned.

Having been given additional time off, the Chilean international was originally set for a return to pre season training on Sunday following his involvement in the Confederations Cup, but having taken to social media to announce an illness, the club gave him the extra couple of days to get himself clear.

Of course with ongoing transfer speculation about his future that simply fuelled that, but whatever may happen before the closure of the transfer window, he was back out on the pitch and putting the hard work in on Tuesday.

Whether or not he comes into Arsene Wenger’s plans for Sunday’s Community Shield against Chelsea remains to be seen.
