Sanchez omitted from Arsenal squad amid speculation of January transfer

Sanchez omitted from Arsenal squad amid speculation of January transfer

That might be more amenable to Arsenal, but the bigger challenge remains convincing Sanchez.

The Brazilian has been identified by Pep Guardiola as the long-term successor to Fernandinho in midfield, although he may face competition from rivals United.

"But in relation to Alexis Sanchez, I don't say a word".

But United's interest, if true, will probably leave Arsenal in no mood to reduce their asking price, even though Sanchez can walk away for free in the summer.

The Chilean, who trained on Saturday, has six months remaining on his contract and Wenger appears resigned to losing him before the window closes on January 31.

"The balance of the squad is made in the summer, unless you have a dramatic situation with a insane number of injuries and you are pushed for emergency deals".

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is in talks with Manchester City over the possible signing of Raheem Sterling, claims Don Balon .

It's been common knowledge for a while now that the Chilean superstar has had his heart set on a reunion with former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola at Manchester City and if Sanchez waits until the summer, it's nearly certain he'll get his wish.

Manchester United are also interested in the 24-year-old, and City have been informed that the £45m bid they are preparing will not be enough to secure his release.

Paper Round's view: If City were desperate for Sanchez, they could outbid perhaps any club in the world.

Wenger admitted on Friday that Sanchez would not be signing a new deal, paving the way for him to leave the club in the current transfer window, adding that a bidding war could help Arsenal.

De Laurentiis, however, instantly rebuffed the request, maintaining that the winger would prove too expensive.

Champions League football will also return next month, with United visiting Sevilla in the first leg of their last-16 tie on February 21.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Redknapp said: 'I'd say it is the worst Arsenal team I've seen.

Jose Mourinho's side entered the race late but have become serious contenders for Sanchez's signature, their prospects growing as City struggle to negotiate a fee with Arsenal, who are seeking upwards of £30 million for their star man.
