Arsenal want £35million for Alexis Sanchez as Man City prepare opening bid

Alexis Sanchez

Alexis was left out of Arsenal's squad for the trip to the City ground.

Sanchez was not included in Arsenal's embarrassing FA Cup loss to Nottingham Forest.

Arsene Wenger rotated his squad significantly as they lost to the Championship side.

Joey Barton has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 8th January, that he highly doubts that Alexis Sanchez would join Liverpool.

Arsenal now realise that this could be their last chance to cash in on Sanchez, which could make a move in January possible for the attacker. The Cityzens will now test the waters with a bid, according to the Evening Standard, but Arsenal are keen to get £40m for their star winger.

The more likely scenario is that Man City will swoop for Alexis this month.

The Catalan reportedly hopes to see City secure the signing of Alexis Sanchez, as well as add another centre-back following Vincent Kompany's latest injury.

Jesus is now set to be sidelined for the best part of six weeks.

Cárdenas says the main sticking point is a fee, with City offering £20million for a player out of contract in June and Arsenal requesting £35million.

However, precious few Arsenal fans have ever believed that the former Barcelona man was going to sign a new deal at the club and it's just a matter of time before he is reunited with former boss Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

I understand that Sanchez has again reiterated his desire to leave to Arsenal - and they are now ready to listen, and the player is hopeful that City can strike a deal this month, rather than waiting until the summer, when he can move on a free transfer.
