Sanchez nearing Manchester City move

Sanchez nearing Manchester City move

Arsenal are reportedly prepared to part ways with Alexis Sanchez this month, provided any club are willing to match their £40m valuation for the attacker.

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.

Monaco's Thomas Lemar and Lyon's Nabil Fekir are on Arsenal's radar as potential replacements for Sanchez.

Arsenal are close to reaching an agreement with West Bromwich Albion for Jonny Evans, says The Sun .

Theo Walcott is another player who is set to leave Arsenal this month with a return to Southampton a real possibility.

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.

The signing has strengthened talk of Jonny Evans, Samuel Umtiti or Inigo Martinez singing as City go in search of another defender.

However, City will be encouraged by Sanchez's omission from Arsenal's embarrassing FA Cup third-round exit at Nottingham Forest yesterday as it means he will not be Cup-tied for the latter stages.

The Chile global is out of contract at the end of the season and is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with overseas clubs.

Pep Guardiola wants £50 million to reinforce Manchester City's squad in January, according to The Sun .

Bookmakers firmly believe that City will be grabbing Sanchez this month - Unibet list City at 1/5, which is a probability over 80%.

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