Arsenal have reportedly received two bids for Alexis Sanchez and this could force Manchester City into action.
City were close to signing Sanchez last summer, after they had a £60m bid accepted on deadline day, only for Arsenal to pull out of negotiations after failing to secure a replacement.
This left the Etihad club furious but they kept their interest in the striker, with the hope of signing him for free in the summer.
However, they may now have to bring their plans forward, after learning that Arsenal have received two bids for the Chilean.
According to Manchester Evening News via the Daily Cannon, two unnamed clubs have indicated their interest to sign Sanchez in January.
This could now force City into action, so they don’t end up losing out on the Chilean.
While we are left to guess who the other two clubs are, I wouldn’t be surprised if one of them was PSG.
The French club has been the most consistently linked with Sanchez all these months behind Manchester City. They tried to sign him in the summer but dropped their interest after they signed Neymar.
The French club reportedly remain interested and are exploring all options to sign him.
Arsene Wenger recently stated that Sanchez will not be leaving Arsenal in January but that could change if we receive a substantial offer for him.
It’d be a shame if we sell him in January but there’s nothing we can do considering his contractual situation. If it then comes to a situation where we have to sell the forward, I’ll prefer we sell abroad.
