Manchester City confident of wrapping up £30m Alexis Sanchez transfer this week

Manchester City confident of wrapping up £30m Alexis Sanchez transfer this week

Sanchez has visibly not looked the part for most of the campaign following a failed deadline day move to Manchester City in the summer, but he still has eight 8 and 4 assists in 21 appearances - more than any other Arsenal player.

Everton and Newcastle are also interested in the England winger.

A host of Premier League teams, including Arsenal, Tottenham and Southampton are willing to pay Arnaiz's £20 million release clause should he move to England.

The Sun revealed how Etihad boss Pep Guardiola missed out on Virgil van Dijk after prioritising a move for the Chilean.

City would have landed their man in a £60million deal in the summer had Arsenal managed to land Thomas Lemar from Monaco, but the deal collapsed at the last moment as the French side refused to cash in.

The Gunners are resigned to losing Alexis in January and have informed City that they want around £35 million for the Chilean.

Indeed, Monaco have already insisted that the France worldwide, who is also thought to be a target for Arsenal, would not be leaving the club in January.

City are desperate to sign another striker after Gabriel Jesus was ruled out with knee ligament damage.

Reports have emerged this week suggesting that Aubameyang topped an Arsenal shortlist of possible replacements for Sanchez, but when asked on Friday, the manager said: "No, it is not a possibility".

On the topic of Alexis Sanchez, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola did say recently that his club would hold some internal meetings.

However, when asked about any interest in signing the Gabon worldwide this month, Wenger said: "No, that is not a possibility".
