Arsenal’s transfer deadline day is still very much up in the air and what will happen come 11pm tonight is anyone’s guess. But judging by the latest reports, we take a look at the four most likely deals to happen at Arsenal today.
1 – Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City
The situation regarding Alexis remains unchanged as the Gunners are publicly stating he is not for sale today unless a massive offer comes in or a player plus cash offer. Of course, Raheem Sterling has been linked in a swap deal, but reports now suggest that Sterling will not be included in any offer from Manchester City.Arsenal are unlikely to find a better player than Sterling to replace Alexis at this stage of the window, so they should be pushing for his inclusion in any deal, in my opinion.
City are confident if they bid around £70million today, Arsenal will accept the offer. Considering he has less than a year remaining on his current contract, that is a huge amount of money – but what can Arsenal do with that money so late in the window?
