Malcom set to sign for Arsenal while Alexis heads to Old Trafford

Conte admits previous attempt to sign Sanchez

Sanchez, 29, did not even travel to the south coast for the lunchtime kick-off, with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger admitting he was left at home over his unresolved future.

The Chile global has been widely tipped to join Manchester City, either in the January window or when his contract runs out this summer, but United are reported to have entered the race.

Wenger has been linked with Bordeaux's Brazilian forward Malcom and Thomas Lemar of Monaco as replacements for Sanchez.

When asked if United were interested in signing the player, Wenger said "nothing is really concrete at the moment". We don't believe in signing a player just to sign a player.

And now Mourinho has admitted he would be keen on a player like Sanchez, saying: "What we believe is there are some players in the football world where if you have a chance to sign them then you have to try". Alexis wants to win. Incidentally he won trophies with us.

A reunion between Sanchez and his former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola at City has always been touted, with the Premier League leaders reported to have tabled a £20million for the Arsenal star, who is out of contract at the end of the season.

Sainz storms to Dakar Rally lead
Teammate Cyril Despres had stopped to help the stricken Peterhansel who was leading the stage at the time of the accident. According to his team, the damage was caused when he hit a stone as he tried to get past another competitor.

"So he wants to fight as well for the Premier League, that's normal, when you are at that level". The top four in the Premier League qualify for Champions League spots. It's a very, very big game.

City have appeared to be in the box seat for a long time in the pursuit of the player, although now the Red Devils look as though they're neck and neck with their local rivals. City are reportedly pulling out of the race given news of Gabriel Jesus' return from a knee injury earlier than expected which has given the others some hope in completing the transfer. He is confident of a 30% wage increase to keep him at The Emirates, and also wants the number 10 shirt now worn by Jack Wilshere.

And Wenger is growing increasingly confident of having Ozil at the club next season and beyond. But Jack Wilshere could play against the club he played for on loan last term after a quick recovery from an ankle problem.

"I am not going (to speak about it)", he said.

Jose Mourinho yesterday hinted a deal for the Arsenal star was in the works by labelling the chance to sign him as a 'fantastic opportunity'.
