Manchester City 'Confident' of Move for Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez

Paris Saint-Germain full-back Dani Alves has also suggested it is possible Sanchez could join him in the French capital. Reports have followed suggesting Pep Guardiola's side will return with a £20m offer for the Chile global in the new year in an effort to test the north Londoner's resolve.

As Burt noted, though, much will depend on Arsenal's situation come January and their ability to replace Sanchez, as cashing in on him will hardly be worth it if they miss out on a UEFA Champions League place as a result.

The Gunners face Watford in their first game after the worldwide break on Saturday lunchtime, but they are dealing with something of an injury crisis. The Germany global has attracted enquiries from Inter Milan and Besiktas, but interest has cooled in recent months.

Today Wenger admitted that it's "possible" both players could be sold in January.

According to the Sky Sports website, Wenger told a press conference: "Once you are in our kind of situation, we have envisaged every solution. It is possible [they could go in January]".

"I have concerns. I will decide tomorrow what I will do", said the Frenchman on Thursday.

"When you don't have the World Cup, you focus on your club".

The Arsenal attacker suffered World Cup heartbreak as a defeat to Brazil, combined with a Lionel Messi-inspired win for Argentina and a 1-1 draw between Colombia and Peru, saw Chile fail to qualify for Russian Federation 2018.

"He doesn't have to leave Arsenal to get to the World Cup". I will always appreciate him.

"First of all I wasn't sure he would play and Germany were already through so I didn't think the game would be as competitive".

One deal Arsenal have concluded this week saw Calum Chambers sign a two-year contract extension, keeping him at the club until 2021.

"I believe it's important we keep our young centre-backs, they blossom at 24 so it's important to keep them in that period".
