Arsenal Want Mahrez to Replace Alexis

Thursday, 11 Jan, 2018

Due to his outstanding form with table-toppers Manchester City, Kevin De Bruyne is now the odds-on favourite to be named this season's Premier League player of the year. The two English clubs have opened talks over a deal in the ongoing mid-season transfer window.

Jesus suffered a leg injury in the goalless draw against Crystal Palace on Christmas Eve with City manager Pep Guardiola confirming that he will be out for several weeks.

There were suggestions in December that City, who have always been interested in Sanchez, would prefer to wait until the Chile worldwide comes out of contract in the summer.

That Sanchez will feature is by no means a guarantee he'll remain an Arsenal player come February, but the Gunners are at least hoping to get as much as they can from him before he departs.

The report added that Arsenal is seeking a transfer fee of approximately £35 million (AU$60 million). Yes he would. I can only see him being at Manchester City.

Arsene Wenger has refused to explain why he named Alexis Sanchez on the bench for tonight's League Cup semi-final with Chelsea.

The Premier League leaders have been heavily linked with a January move for the Arsenal forward. "I expect nothing. I'm focused on tomorrow's game (vs. Chelsea)". At the moment, it's very quiet.

I'm a huge fan of him, said Bellamy.

That's because he might have let slip that Sanchez is about to join City with the use of the word "when". Sanchez now has seven goals and three assists on the season for the Gunners, which put him at second and fifth for the team, respectively. He has helped Arsenal clinch two FA Cup titles since arriving at Emirates Stadium.
