Manchester City still very keen on Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez

Manchester City remain very keen to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal before Deadline Day ends, according to Sky sources.

So far, City have still only made the one bid for Sanchez – a £50m offer which was rejected by Arsenal- contrary to reports of a second offer.

Man City will improve that initial offer, though, and club officials are in Chile to help co-ordinate any medical or personal negotiations if a deal is agreed between the two clubs.

Sanchez has less than 11 months remaining on his current contract and is yet to sign terms on a fresh deal at the Emirates.

Arsenal denied claims Sanchez had handed in a transfer request on Monday night, but Chilean media T13 reported on Tuesday that the 28-year-old had asked to leave the Chile training camp to “conduct personal business”.

Arsene Wenger has reiterated his desire to keep Sanchez throughout the summer and said earlier this month that he hoped the former Barcelona man would extend his contract.

Raheem Sterling had been wanted by Arsenal as a part of a potential deal to take Sanchez to Man City, according to Sky sources
