According to reports, Manchester City are ready to test Arsenal’s resolve by making one final bid of £70million for unsettled Alexis Sanchez over a possible move this summer transfer window.
The Chilean international has been heavily linked with a move away from the Emirate Stadium.
City have been heavily linked with a swoop for the Gunners star all summer, but have been unable to strike a deal as Arsene Wenger has insisted he is not for sale, despite having just 12 months remaining on his current deal.
Wenger has always insisted he will not sell to a Premier League rival and is prepared to risk Sanchez leaving on a free transfer this time next year, and City now looks set to test that stance by making a lucrative bid.
Reports claim that City will now offer £70million in the hope that Arsenal will find it too good to turn down, while they will also offer the player a huge £400,000 a week to lure him away.
