Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez is allegedly set to pay a £25m signing-on fee to make sure he completes his move to Manchester City this window.
The Chile international forward is coming to the end of his Arsenal contract, but look eager to wait no longer to leave as he hopes a winter deal can be sealed.
