Alexis Sanchez has agreed personal terms with Manchester City as his proposed moves to the Etihad edges closer.
The Chilean has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League leaders since the end of last season, with a move thought to have been close to happening on the final day of last summer’s transfer window. However the £60m deal was halted thanks to Arsenal’s inability to sign a replacement, namely Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar.
The transfer rumour mill has gone up a notch this week, with speculation suggesting a deal could be getting closer, and today, those claims include the Guardian‘s report that Man City have made a £20m offer to the Gunners for the Chilean’s services.
They also claim that Sanchez has agreed a four-and-a-half year deal that will see him earn £250,000-a-week, £13m-a-year.
Thomas Lemar is still a target for the Gunners to replace Sanchez, as is Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez and Boca Juniors youngster Christian Pavon, with the latter being available for £27m.
