Alexis Sanchez may yet try and force through a move this summer as Manchester City get set to test Arsenal’s resolve with a £60m bid, according to the Telegraph.

Sanchez is in the final year of his contract at the Emirates and is yet to show any intent to sign an extension leading to intense speculation surrounding his future this summer.

The Chilean international has been linked with a whole host of top European clubs in recent months but Man City have emerged as front-runners for his signature.

Arsenal insist that Sanchez won’t be sold, particularly to a Premier League rival, even if he doesn’t sign a new deal and they are prepared to run the risk of losing him for nothing in 12 months time.

The Telegraph claim that while Sanchez would ideally like to leave this month, he’s coming around to the idea of staying for another season and running down his contract at the Emirates.

However, the newspaper says the 28-year-old could yet force through his exit over the coming weeks once Man City formalise their interest with Pep Guardiola set to give the green light to a swoop before the close of the window.

The Telegraph claim that City are ready to test Arsenal’s resolve with a £60m offer and plan to tempt Sanchez with a lucrative deal worth £400,000-a-week, including bonuses and image rights.

That sort of money could prove too good to turn down, for both Arsenal and Sanchez, but City could yet face some stiff competition as the report indicates that Chelsea have also been showing a strong interest in Sanchez.

Antonio Conte has made no secret of his desire to further strengthen before the end of the month as his squad isn’t big enough to cope with the demands of competing on all fronts this season.

Conte was forced to put several youth players on the bench during Saturday’s defeat at home to Burnley so Chelsea could yet step-up their interest in Sanchez over the coming weeks.

It’s going to be interesting to see how this particular transfer saga plays out but while £60m is a tempting amount of money for Arsenal, the backlash they’d receive from the fans if they sold Sanchez to a rival would be severe, so I personally don’t think they’ll sell this summer.

    GOOD NEW…..

    Sanchez to man city
    Oziel to barcelona

    and then get
    Mbappe, Nzonzi

    According to me, Arsenal’s weakness are on DM n AM area. Combination of CB area all ready strong enough. If there is counter attack usually arsenal unable to handle because less of holding midfielder. So i think better if arsenal get more player on
    DM (Nzonzi) and AM (Mbappe)

    MBAPPE. Giroud. LACAZETTE.
    KOLASINAC. Xhaka. NZONZI. Bellerinl
    Koscielny. Mustafi. Holding.
    Cech.

    Good team.
    I HOPE ARSENE….
