The Bundesliga outfit are not having any of it as illustrated by the statements made by the club’s CEO Watzke yesterday and Sporting Director Michael Zorc today. The club has also disciplined Aubameyang by removing him from the team’s set-up but still the rumors persist as Arsenal continue to work on trying to sign a player to replace Sanchez with.
Arsene Wenger does not however want to risk both losing Sanchez as well as not finding a suitable replacement and has come up with a plan b according to British tabloid The Daily Express.

However, the Rossoneri have ruled out a departure for the player on several occasions which means that Arsenal will have to fight another reluctant club the difference being that given AC Milan’s financial situation, the club could be forced to sell.
