Arsene Wenger plans Alexis Sanchez exit in January

Arsene Wenger plans Alexis Sanchez exit in January

City are set to test Arsenal's resolve over keeping Alexis by making a concerted effort to sign the forward this month.

Meanwhile, Sanchez has reportedly fallen out with his Arsenal teammates, which could have hastened Arsene Wenger's decision to allow him to leave.

The Chile global has entered the final six month of his Gunners contract, and his representative is free to discuss a pre-contract agreement with a foreign side this month.

However, City are optimistic that they can agree a deal worth around £25m to complete the signing of their long-term transfer target in the January window.

Despite this, the north London giants are said to demand a minimum transfer fee of around £40m with Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool credited with an interest in the versatile attacker.

However, City will be encouraged by Sanchez's omission from Arsenal's embarrassing FA Cup third-round exit at Nottingham Forest yesterday as it means he will not be Cup-tied for the latter stages.

Goal understands City are keen on the Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder as Guardiola looks to add depth to his squad in the middle of the park.

City's hierarchy believe that a deal in the region of £30m could be struck, although reports suggest the two clubs are still afar off in the player's valuation.

The more likely scenario is that Man City will swoop for Alexis this month.

Sanchez has made clear his intention to join Pep Guardiola's side and discussions over a proposed January move are now underway. The Chilean worldwide has been linked with PSG, Bayern Munich and even Real Madrid over the past few months, but now the Gunners' top flight rivals Manchester City are set to make a significant bid.
