Arsenal manager revealed that Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez are expected to make their return when the Gunners pre-season schedule continues in Scandinavia.
The 66-year-old manager takes his squad to Norway and Sweden to face Viking and Manchester City and the US tour party will be replenished by some familiar faces, reports the Arsenal website.
Wenger insists that Ramsey and Sanchez will participate in the Gunners pre-season tour, however, a number of first team players will not take part in the tour.
‘Not all of [the international players will be back],’ Wenger, ‘But Ramsey will be involved, Sanchez will be involved.
‘The latest players coming back will not be involved, that’s Ozil, Giroud, and Koscielny, they are the last ones and I don’t think they will be involved on the tour on Thursday, but all the others will.’
The French manager has hailed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain pre-season performance but he remains optimistic about the 22-year-old after he scored two goals in three pre-season appearances.
‘This is a very important season for Alex,’ he added.
‘He was out for a very long time, I’m cautious with him at the moment but he’s getting better in every game and that’s good to see.’
