Arsenal waiting on ‘huge offer’ for Alexis Sanchez after rejecting Manchester City bid
Chelsea aren’t the only ones looking to make impactful moves in the final two days of the transfer window, with title rivals Manchester City, Liverpool, and even Spurs staying very busy as the window slowly winds shut.
City’s main target appears to be yet another attacker, Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez, who’s been linked with Pep Guardiola’s new team for the better part of a year, which is almost as long as Chelsea have supposedly been interested as well. But while Chelsea appear to be sitting this one out — grumble, grumble, grumble — City are still having just as many issues as anyone else these days in trying to get a signing over the finishing line.
Basically, Alexis is still on the market. City offered £50m, Arsenal rejected it and countered with a cash, plus Raheem Sterling request, which City in turn laughed off. They have promised to come back with an improved cash-only offer, though it’s unclear just how much Arsenal are demanding.
