"I wish he is in the England squad", Wenger said before Arsenal's Europa League last-16 second leg against Milan at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night; his team are 2-0 up on aggregate.

All-in-all, Lacazette has scored nine times in 31 games for Arsenal in all competitions, including both in the 2-0 win over West Brom in September.

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette remains on course to return from injury following the global break, Arsene Wenger has said.

Such has been the reordering of things in recent years by Uefa, however, that an English team missing out might not actually be too badly out of pocket if they actually win the Europa League.

"I can not say anything more because there is nothing to say about it and I do not want to offend Arsene, whom I adore and for whom I have a lot of respect".

"I do think at close to even money it is a great price on Arsenal to win given the quality of players who should play and it is another opportunity to build momentum, and get the fans that are there on side". There are plenty of potential Arsenal vs AC Milan tips outcomes which could make an evening of Europa League action very interesting indeed. Look at Milan, [Borussia] Dortmund and Atletico Madrid, there are many good French teams.

"We can't take our foot off the gas, we need to treat it as if it's 0-0, that's the right mentality to have".

"It had been a tough run, we try in every game. Sometimes when you have a negative spell it is hard to get out, that's why it was important to get out of it".

Wenger chatted with players on a one-to-one basis throughout the training session.

Arsene Wenger has said that discussions about Wilshere's contract would start in early December, but there has still been no conclusion, as he has only offered Wilshere £90,000 per week, a £20,000 pay cut.

Jack Wilshere is set to walk away from Arsenal on a free transfer this summer.

"That is my desire and I hope he will do it".
