“Yes, of course. Chile are at an important part of their qualifiers, they are not through yet and he is available to travel to Chile.”

On the imminent departure of the attacker, Wenger said he is more focused on the team than an individual player.

“I had to deal many times in my life with big departures, big players. I always focused more on the team and to deal with all the rest.

“No matter what, Arsenal and the team is important. Of course you want to keep your best players but you always think if it happens you have to find a way to survive at the top level and to find a way to make the team efficient.

“You don’t focus too much on individual players, you focus more on how the team can be strong enough to deal with what can happen,” he said.

Transfer fees

Speaking on the recent transfer of Neymar to PSG, the Frenchman said it is difficult to predict how inflation in the market will be.

“That shows you how quickly things go up and down in life. At the moment it’s an abstraction. It’s just a number and very difficult to imagine nowadays.

“We saw £100m for the first time last year and just one year later, it’s over £200m. Will that go on? I don’t know, but it looks like it doubles in the transfer market every year now. It looks to me like it will reach a stage where it’s very difficult to predict where it will go. Nobody knows in our job.”
