Arsenal braced for Alexis exit but Wenger hopeful on Ozil extension

A host of top English clubs including league leaders Manchester City and their domestic rivals Manchester United have been linked with a move for the Chile global, though the Blues boss has now confirmed that the Londoners will not be part of this.

Sanchez was believed to be on his way to Manchester City either in the winter or the summer transfer window, with the club agreeing terms on a contract with the player's representatives. 'Sanchez is an Arsenal player, I don't know but probably this weekend he is going to defend Arsenal colours so I don't think it's correct to say things about Alexis Sanchez.

Manager Antonio Conte has confirmed that the Premier League champions will not be taking part in the transfer battle to sign Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez.

The player has been beset by injuries ever since joining our club but is looking good as he is overcoming his mental challenges that have held him back despite his fitness. We appreciate what a good player he is.

"Alexis is an exceptional football player, he's a world-class player and if that happens (and he leaves) we have to find a different balance in the team". "No, because if City want Sanchez, they buy Sanchez", said the Italian.

But reports this week suggested that Manchester United are attempting to trump their local rivals with a £25million bid and a wage offer of £400,000 a week.

Footage of the rescue showed parts of the Sanchi still aflame, its hull and superstructure completely stripped of paint. The first body had been found on Monday, which now leaves the number of the remaining crew members at 29.

The Armenia global has been linked with a potential exit at Old Trafford over the past couple of months or so following a hard 2017-18 season so far.

Diego Martinez, whose Twitter profile claims he has written for March and Mundo Deportivo, tweeted earlier this evening that Arsenal had reached an agreement with Sanchez's agent, Fernando Felicevic, and that the move was completed. They have told Sanchez to make up his mind over the proposed move this week.

Stoke City have offered Martin O'Neill the chance to return to the Premier League.

To lose a player of Sanchez's ability for nothing is obviously a blow for The Gunners, but their decision not to sell him in the summer to Manchester City has been somewhat justified.

City remain favourites to sign the Arsenal forward but Liverpool want him too and are armed with the £142m from Philippe Coutinho's sale to Barcelona.
