Manchester City are reportedly set to plot a final bid in the range of £70million for Arsenal ace, Alexis Sanchez.
The two-time Premier League champions have had numerous transfer links with a move for the Chilean international in recent times.
Despite that, though, the Gunners boss, Arsene Wenger has remained resolute on his decision that Sanchez will stay at Arsenal.
The 28-year-old’s future is still very much in doubt because of the fact that his deal runs out next summer.
And there are no indications as at this very point in time that Sanchez is ready to agree new terms.
According to a report from The Telegraph, City want to make a last-ditch effort to land the attacker for £60m.
The same report has even suggested that the Mancunians are ready to pay the former Barcelona player £400,000 a week.
But the North Londoners are refusing to sell and want to risk losing him on a free transfer next year.
Sanchez has made a decision to lower his wage demands to force through a move to the Etihad this summer.
The 28-year-old had made a huge demand of about £400,000 a week to remain at Arsenal, according to concrete reports.
This has now left Wenger with a difficult option to make should a huge offer come around.
However, Wenger is not ready to sell his star player to a direct Premier League rival.
Sanchez hit the back of the net 30 times in 51 games across all competitions for Arsenal during the 2016/17 season.
Gunners open to losing Sanchez on free transfer
Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger has revealed that the Gunners are ready to lose forward, Alexis Sanchez on a free transfer.
The French tactician has insisted he will make the Chilean international a “financial sacrifice” rather than sell him this summer.
Meanwhile, Sanchez particularly is actually very much eager to make a departure from the Gunners before the summer window ends.
And that is the case as the Chilean star is on his own part pining for a move away soon.
Sanchez also dropped a strong hint which gives a suggestion of his impending exit from the club last week Tuesday.
That is the latest development as the Chilean star has admitted that he wants to play in the Champions League.
Meanwhile, the Gunners will only feature in the Europa League after failing to qualify for this season’s elite club competition.
And that is as a result of their placing fifth on the English Premier League standings during the 2016/17 campaign.
