Arsenal name their price as Premier League rivals prepare January transfer bid for Gunners star

Posted by

Arsenal are ready to sell Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City in the January transfer window if they receive an offer of £50million or more, according to latest reports.

The Chile international came close to leaving the Gunners on deadline day in the summer, though BBC Sport report that the move broke down late on as Arsene Wenger’s side could not land a replacement.

According to the Independent, Arsenal’s stance has not significantly changed, with Wenger willing to do business if the right offer comes along – and £50m should be enough.

The report claims City to plan to try again for Sanchez, who has been one of the top attacking players in Europe down the years even if he’s yet to hit top form this term.

Sanchez would fit in nicely in this City attack, with Pep Guardiola already enjoying the likes of Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Kevin De Bruyne in tremendous form this year.

The Sky Blues look well on their way to winning the Premier League title – something Sanchez has never really come close to doing in his three years at the Emirates Stadium.

The 28-year-old has won two FA Cups with the north Londoners, but will want to be aiming higher as the club are now not even competing in the Champions League after finishing 5th in the league last season.

Sanchez worked under Guardiola at Barcelona earlier in his career, and linking up with the Spanish tactician seems a more or less guaranteed way to get major honours under your belt.
