Liverpool face serious complication in £25m pursuit of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Paul Merson in action for Arsenal

Alexis Sanchez has edged closer to leaving Arsenal after he agreed personal terms with Manchester City, according to reports in Portugal.

WHICH Arsenal players are most likely to still be at the club by the end of the summer transfer window? However, Pep Guardiola and Manchester City look to have got another one over on Arsene Wenger's team by luring another highly valued player away from the Emirates.

It is added that the overall cost of the deal would rise to £50m with Sanchez desperate to link up with Guardiola's side ahead of the 2017/18 season.

Arsenal should pay Alexis Sanchez what he is demanding as they will not be able to find a better player to take his place, according to former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy.

The Leicester manager, however, does admit he was disappointed that Mahrez went public with his desire to leave the club, in the form of a statement issued to the press in May.

'Not playing in the Champions League is a big deal for Alexis, he is motivated to participate and win it, ' a source close to Sanchez told El Mercurio.

"Alexis spoke to his teammates during the confed cup about the matter, he spoke to his family as well".

"Alexis isn't willing to (sign a new contract), for any reason".

It is a tactic that Liverpool are now employing with Emre Can in the hopes of persuading him to sign on to a new contract.

After confirming the signing of Sead Kolasinac from Schalke in early June, a month later the north London outfit have announced the club record signing of Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette for a reported £43m plus around £10-15m in add-ons - clearly marking intent from Wenger.

The Chilean has been heavily linked with a move to top European clubs like Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Manchester City.
