Manchester City will tempt Arsenal with a £50million bid for Alexis Sanchez in January, according to the Independent.
Sanchez came close to joining City on deadline day, but Arsenal’s failure to sign Thomas Lemar as his replacement ultimately ended the deal.
Pep Guardiola is looking to solidify his attack heading into the second half of the season.
So desperate is Guardiola to sign his former Barcelona pupil, he is willing to pay more than double City’s original offer of £20m.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has publicly stated Alexis, as well as fellow contract renegade Mesut Ozil, will not be leaving the club in January.
“Yes of course [they will stay beyond January],” said Wenger.
“[Beyond this season] I am not the only one who will decide that but if it’s my decision yes. ‘That’s what we’ve said many times. I rule it out [them leaving in January].”
