Antonio Conte Talks Up Alexis Sanchez

Antonio Conte Talks Up Alexis Sanchez

With an asking price of around £35 million for the Chilean, it looks like Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, and even Real Madrid are interested in the 28-year-old. Instead, the Italian made it clear the onus in on the clubs who have already declared their interest, per Boswell: "I have great admiration for great players, I think Alexis Sanchez is one of these players".

"I don't rule it out - at the back, in midfield or upfront", he said. However, during his pre-match presentation before the match against Bournemouth, Arsene Wenger went on to say, "Look, honestly, I can not tell you much more at the moment about this situation".

Guardiola said: "I'm focused on Liverpool, believe me. And you will have more and more players going to the end of their contract".

Manchester United are frontrunners in the race to sign Ozil from Arsenal, with the player's contract at the Emirates expiring in the summer. After all, they were determined not to pay over the odds for Kyle Walker last summer but, when it came to the crunch, they stumped up to sign the defender from Tottenham.

Arsene Wenger has spoken out about the various transfer rumors surrounding Arsenal star, including a move to Manchester United. Conversations had taken place between the two men and Ferguson was confident he could go on holiday to the south of France with a deal for the attacking midfielder in the bag.
