Manchester City To Offer £50 Million For Alexis Sanchez In January

Arsene Wenger: What's different about Mesut Ozil at Arsenal over past month

“Transfer window is around the corner” – Ex Arsenal star aims accusation at Alexis Sanchez & Mesut Ozil

Sanchez came close to joining Man City over the summer while Ozil has been linked with a move to rivals Manchester United.

Alexis and Ozil playing for Arsenal exits? In my head they stay until the end of the season.

So desperate is Guardiola to sign his former Barcelonapupil, he is willing to pay more than double City's original offer of £20m.

Arsene Wenger has stressed that neither Sanchez or Mesut Ozil will be sold in January, however, the Frenchman has a reputation for going back on his word when it comes to transfer business.

The pair have been in impressive form for Arsenal in recent weeks.

The likes of Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Per Mertesacker attended Whittington Hospital, alongside Arsenal Women's stars Heather O'Reilly and Alex Scott. They have a part to play in that as well.

"Once people see that they are behind you, everybody knows in the stadium that he is a good football player and at the moment he shows that he can fight".

However, Arsenal boss Wenger believes Ozil's form is a by-product of his return to full fitness after an injury-hit start to the 2017-18 Premier League season.

Arsenal go into the European clash on the back of their 3-1 defeat by Manchester United and Wenger will be hoping his side bounce back quickly ahead of their Premier League encounter against Southampton at St Mary's on Sunday.

Both players received a yellow card in the final minutes, as two goals from Jesse Lingard and Antonio Valencia's opener gave Jose Mourinho's side a vital win following Raheem Sterling's late victor for City against West Ham.
