Arsenal, Man City open talks about Alexis Sanchez deal

Arsenal transfer news Arsene Wenger not interested in bringing in Pierre Emerick Aubameyang

Arsenal have reportedly stated £40m as the asking price for winger Alexis Sanchez as Manchester City step up their efforts to sign the Chilean this month.

Arsene Wenger has hinted recently that the Gunners could let Sanchez go if they can identify a replacement and if they feel that there is no chance of tying him down in the long-term, saying: "We are open in any position for the exceptional player who can give us a plus".

Sanchez has made it clear that he wants to join up with Guardiola at City and ESPN FC has been told that Arsenal have chose to accept a transfer fee now rather than let him leave for free at the end of his contract.

Lee added that City are "unwilling" to part with that amount, although according to James Olley of the Evening Standard, Arsenal want even more than the sum quoted, with a valuation of £40 million said to have been placed on Sanchez.

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

Top-ranked Nadal, who lost last year's Australian final to Roger Federer and went on to win the French and U.S. A right elbow injury has kept him off the tour since July.

After that the Chilean can leave the Emirates Stadium for free. Clubs can register a maximum of one player who has previously played in the Europa League group stage ahead of the Champions League knock-out rounds.

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

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

Both Sanchez and Mahrez would welcome moves, with the former keen to join back up with former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola.

Manchester City were also linked with the defender and even made a bid for him in the summer, but it seems the Gunners are now leading the chase for his signature.
