Arsenal omits Sanchez amid interest from Manchester clubs

Alexis Sanchez left out of Arsenal squad for Bournemouth clash as Manchester United prepare record £350000-a

The Chile worldwide has refused to sign a new Arsenal contract with his current deal expiring in the summer, and United and City are reportedly both keen on recruiting him this month. The in-demand Chilean will not play for the Gunners on Sunday and the latest reports suggest that United have an edge over City in securing his services.

Mkhitaryan has since returned to the fold, but United are aware of Wenger's admiration of the attacking midfielder and his involvement in the Sanchez pursuit could hold the key to United beating City to the forward. Arsenal are reportedly happy with the addition of Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the deal, and the £20 million fee seems enough for a player who would end up leaving for free in the summer.

Although contrary to what has been said during the past few months, the Chilean winger is not likely to join City and instead could seal a move to United.

Former Manchester United forward Andy Cole has urged Jose Mourinho to go all out to sign Alexis Sanchez over the January transfer window.

"His situation is not completely decided one way or the other, so I left him at home".

He left the court but opened the second half and scored 10 points in the third quarter, including an emphatic driving dunk. By contrast, the Warriors lead the league in scoring (115.7 points per game) and three-point shooting (39 per cent).

And Cole believes that Mourinho needs to take advantage of this window of opportunity to sign Sanchez this month.

When asked whether news was imminent, Wenger told Sky Sports: "Yes, [but] don't read too much into it because I don't know what way it'll go".

So, when it emerged Sanchez has been left out of the squad, United supporters were quick to express their excitement on Twitter...

It is hard to envisage Sanchez staying beyond January, but Arsenal will not sell him unless they can bring in a replacement, with a £35m bid for 20-year-old Malcom expected this week.
