Arsenal want £35million for Alexis Sanchez as Man City prepare opening bid

Arsenal want £35million for Alexis Sanchez as Man City prepare opening bid

A failed deal for Thomas Lemar killed the chances of Alexis moving in the summer, and with Liverpool the front-runners for the Monaco man now, Arsene Wenger has turned his attention to the Leicester City star.

Manchester City are closing in on the belated signing of Arsenal superstar Alexis Sanchez, Chilean journalist Maks Cárdenas claimed this evening.

Earlier reports suggested City were only prepared to pay a nominal fee of around £15m but Guardiola's insistence that a deal happens in January is forcing their hand, something the north London club fully intends to exploit.

Arsenal's Shkodran Mustafi is reluctant to be drawn into a debate regarding the futures of "top class players" Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.

Manchester City are said to be confident of landing the Arsenal man for as little as £25 million.




The Arsenal forward continues to run down his contract, with Goal revealing that the Chilean is eager to push through a January switch to the Etihad .

Pep Guardiola's side are, for now, favourites to pursue the Chilean following a knee injury to Gabriel Jesus, but the club feel the valuation is too high for a player, who could be available for a Bosman in five months' time.

The Catalan reportedly hopes to see City secure the signing of Alexis Sanchez, as well as add another centre-back following Vincent Kompany's latest injury.

Sanchez moved to Arsenal in a £35m deal from La Liga giants Barcelona in the 2014 summer transfer window after he snubbed a move to Liverpool FC.

Former Liverpool FC and Manchester City striker Bellamy believes Sanchez is in desperate need of a fresh start to reboot his career.
