Alexis missing for Arsenal New York tour

Alexis Sanchez will miss Arsenal's tour of New York.

The London Evening Standard says he has been left out of Arsenal's squad for their pre?season trip to New York.

Sanchez, who arrived from Barcelona for £30million, has been awarded extended leave by boss Arsene Wenger after helping Chile to the knock-out rounds of this summer's World Cup.

The same applies for Costa Rican striker Joel Campbell, who helped his country to the quarter-finals, before being eliminated by host's Brazil.

Arsenal face Thierry Henry's New York Red Bulls in a friendly on Saturday.
