Now, Pep Guardiola‘s side are said to have offered $77 million and it has also been reported that Man City have sent a delegation of officials to Santiago, Chile for Sanchez to undergo a medical and sign paperwork if a fee is agreed for the man who scored 24 goals and added 10 assists last season in the Premier League.

Despite having less than 12 months left on his Arsenal deal, Arsene Wenger has insisted all summer long that Sanchez would not be sold.

However it seems as though plans are being put in place for the Gunners to replace Sanchez…

Spanish soccer expert Guillen Ballague has stated that Arsenal have are confident of pushing through a move for Lemar as a direct replacement for Sanchez.

Lemar, 21, is currently on international duty with France and although AS Monaco insist the winger is not for sale, an offer of over $60 million could turn their heads.

The winger could play for France against Holland tonight at the Stade de France, but could he have a new club by the time that game is over?

Liverpool and Barcelona have also said to be keen on Lemar after Arsenal had two bids turned down for him earlier this summer.
