Arsenal omits Sanchez amid interest from Manchester clubs

Jose Mourinho leaves door open for Henrikh Mkhitaryan exit

Jose Mourinho leaves door open for Henrikh Mkhitaryan exit

Sanchez has been left out of Arsenal's squad for Sunday's Premier League encounter with Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium, prompting speculation that a £35m move away from the Emirates is now drawing closer.

But despite United's apparent eleventh-hour move for Sanchez, sources have told ESPN FC that the club has been quietly attempting to beat City to the player since last August.

Former Manchester United forward Andy Cole has urged Jose Mourinho to go all out to sign Alexis Sanchez over the January transfer window.

The Brazilian, who can play wide right or left, is an outstanding technical player though Arsenal recognise he will take time to adapt to the physicality of the Premier League. When at his best, the Chile worldwide is one of the most decisive players in the world, and his pace and skill can upset any defensive line.

"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".


"At the moment their need is perhaps less than Jose Mourinho's need and that probably shows you why Manchester United are so keen on bringing Alexis Sanchez to Old Trafford".

Wenger admitted on Friday that Sanchez would not be signing a new deal, paving the way for him to leave the club in the current transfer window, adding that a bidding war could help Arsenal.

"I look at Arsenal without Sanchez and Ozil and I'd ask what name would fans get on their shirts if those two go?"

"The only word I can say is he is a phenomenal player, apart from that Arsenal player and I feel I shouldn't say much more than this".
