Arsene Wenger: 'Alexis Sanchez decision imminent'

Guillem Balague says Man Utd have not contacted Arsenal over Alexis Sanchez

With the player set on leaving, and ideally wanting to join his former manager Pep Guardiola at Manchester City though he is also considering Manchester United's bid, Arsenal have been moving to ensure a replacement comes this month.

In a move reminiscent of Robin van Persie's betrayal back in 2012, the Chilean has reportedly agreed personal terms ahead of a £30 million move.

It's clear that his departure could come sooner rather than later, but with Man City and Man Utd interested, Wenger was asked about his wantaway attacker.

"I think there is confidence on the red side of Manchester that they have the fee that Arsenal are looking for and they maybe have a player in Henrikh Mkhitaryan that might certainly catch Arsene Wenger's eye".

"He's being vague at the moment, the situation is not completely decided one way or the other".

Michael Olunga , who is on loan from Chinese club Guizhou Hengfeng, also became the first Kenyan to score in the Spanish La Liga. Cristhian Stuani - from the penalty spot - Borja Garcia and Cristian Portu were the other goal scorers on the night.

Sanchez was thought to be heading to either Manchester City or United, but now Liverpool have registered an interest in Arsenal's Chilean forward. But in relation to Alexis Sanchez I don't say a word.

Wenger then said that he hopes the situation is quickly resolved.

Discussions are believed to be underway between Klopp and Liverpool's owners, Fenway Sports Group about lodging a potential bid for Sanchez, although it will be hard for the Merseyside club to persuade the Chilean to move to Anfield due to both City and United being able to offer significantly higher wages than the Reds. "You want to focus on the players that are on the pitch and can do well for the club". "So he has got more opportunities to win trophies there".

"If Arsenal could get him playing like he was at Borussia Dortmund they would have one of the best players in the league".
