Arsenal set to field Alexis Sanchez against Chelsea despite Man City bid
Alexis Sanchez the subject of a £20 million bid from Manchester City
January 10th, 2018
Arsenal head to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, with the Gunners looking to overcome Chelsea and reach the EFL Cup final, although there’s uncertainty over the future of some key players.
Mesut Ozil joins Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac, Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud on the sidelines, although Alexis Sanchez is available despite Manchester City wanting to sign the Chilean in the January transfer window.
City have lodged a £20 million bid for the forward, having failed to sign him last summer and Arsenal might have to accept a similar offer considering that the former Barcelona player is out of contract in the summer.
Manchester City came desperately close to landing Sanchez last summer after a £55 million deal had been agreed only for Arsenal’s attempt to sign Thomas Lemar fell through at the last minute.
