Liverpool Enter Race To Sign Alexis Sanchez

Manchester United are increasingly confident of winning the race to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, with sources telling ESPN FC that Jose Mourinho first raised the prospect of using Henrikh Mkhitaryan as leverage for a deal last summer.

A few days ago, it seemed as though Sanchez's long expected move to City was done and dusted, with several reports indicating that the Chilean forward had agreed personal terms with the Premier League leaders ahead of a £20 million move to the Etihad Stadium.

Prior to the match against Bournemouth, Sky Sports conducted an interview with Wenger and the Arsenal manager was asked if the Arsenal fans can accurately say that his decision to drop the Chilean is to finally get a resolution to the situation, one way or another - he leaves or stays.

Manchester City and Liverpool are also in the race for Sanchez but United have the upper hand because they're prepared to meet Arsenal's demands.

Wenger then said that he hopes the situation is quickly resolved.

Nothing, though, went the way of Everton manager Sam Allardyce , who ended up lambasting his side afterwards. As well as Son and Kane , Alli also proved a constant pain to the Everton midfield and defence.

However, according to the Independent, United could also move for Sanchez's Arsenal team mate, Mesut Ozil.

"They are top of the league, they are going to win the league this season, they are in the Champions League, they are looking like they will be in the final for the League cup, the FA Cup as well potentially".

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. Incidentally he's won trophies with us.

"It's a mess. You've got players; Wilshere, Ozil and Sanchez, three of the best players at your club and they're out of contract in the summer".
