Alexis Sanchez has already agreed personal terms with Manchester City as the Chilean continues to force through his move away from Arsenal, according to reports.

City's willingness to allow Sterling to leave shows their eagerness to sign Sanchez, who managed 24 goals and 10 assists in 38 Premier League appearances last season.

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

Sanchez's future at Arsenal has been the subject of intense speculation with the player in the final year of his contract at the Emirates and yet to agree a new deal.

There is expected to be plenty of movement in the Gunners' rank before Thursday's transfer deadline with Kieran Gibbs, Lucas Perez, Mathieu Debuchy, Shkodran Mustafi all on the edge of leaving the club.

Another player who could potentially be involved in any deal, this is what one source is telling us, is Sergio Aguero.

Sky Sports News understands he is a transfer target for Manchester City, but Arsene Wenger wants to keep Sanchez and says he hopes the Chile global will extend his contract.

Wenger has said he would be prepared to let Sanchez run down his contract and leave for free next summer, but pressure is growing on him after his side lost two of their three opening games of the season. With Liverpool set to be cash rich after the potential sale of Coutinho, a bid of above £60 million could tempt the board to cash in on the 28-year-old forward.

"Arsenal may only be tempted by around £70m but City have not offered that in straight cash".
