Sky Sports is reporting that Arsenal has shot down a near $65 million Manchester City bid for Alexis Sanchez'.

City want to complete a cash-only deal for Sanchez despite sources close to Raheem Sterling claiming the player was offered as part of a player-plus-cash deal to Arsenal.

England winger Sterling signed from Liverpool for £49million in 2015 and has made a strong start to the season with two goals in City's opening three Premier League games.

At least they still have the young-up-and-comer Theo Walcott to fill his boots if/when Sanchez leaves.

He singled out Alexis Sanchez for particular scorn, with the Chile striker being on the brink of a move to Manchester City.

Reports that City have upped their alleged interest in Alexis Sanchez by tabling a firm offer ahead of tomorrow night's transfer deadline are pretty much everywhere.

The exit rumours concerning Sanchez have grown multiple folds after Arsenal's 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool on Sunday, with reports of the Chilean handing in a transfer request soon after - a report that Arsenal have denied.

The Chilean worldwide team have since confirmed that Sanchez remains part of their squad ahead of upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

Sánchez, who has only one year remaining on his contract and has refused to sign an extension, has been a target for City all summer having indicated he would like to work for their manager, Pep Guardiola, once more.

However, after suffering back-to-back league defeats at Stoke (1-0) and Liverpool (4-0), Wenger's tenure is again in the spotlight and Wright believes it is time for the 67-year-old Frenchman to say enough is enough.

Wenger could also cash in on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain before Thursday - another player with no intention of extending his stay at the Emirates.

Sanchez has been linked with a move to a number of European giants, with Germans Bayern Munich and English rivals Manchester City topping the list of potential buyers.
