Antonio Conte speaks about Chelsea's chances of signing Alexis Sanchez

According to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, there is still a chance that German playmaker Mesut Ozil will sign a new deal with the club, although he is resigned to losing Alexis Sanchez.

Manchester City are unwilling to pay more than £20m for the player whose deal at Arsenal expires in the summer, while title rivals Manchester United also want to sign the Chile global.

Sanchez is in the final six months of his contract at Arsenal and had been expected to move to United's local rival Manchester City, after he almost joined Pep Guardiola's men at the start of the season. Probably this weekend he is going to defend Arsenal colours so I don't think it's correct to say things about Alexis Sanchez.

Reports have also emerged that Mourinho will attempt to sign Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, who is also out of contract in the summer. While there is a no way to go before Malcolm is confirmed as an Arsenal player, based on his Instagram pictures showing him learn English its fair to say that the Brazilian will be making a move to the Premier League soon. "He is our player and a very good player".

"No player would say, "Oh I hope he doesn't come"".

Manchester United might want to sign Sanchez, but they are not willing to wait forever to get their man. "And I don't want this to sound bad towards Everton; they could be like Everton".

Red Devils legend Gary Neville became embroiled in a passionate back-and-forth with Sky Sports pundit Guillem Balague on Friday night as he took umbrage with the Spaniard's reductionist opinion that Sanchez would only move to Old Trafford because of money.

If United do land the signing of Alexis Sanchez, it is unknown if he would be a replacement for the missed signing of Perisic from last summer, or whether he then makes next summer's transfer activity that little bit easier.

"I understand completely why you ask this question (about Sanchez), it's your job", said Guardiola. The midfielder is said to be happy in London and has insisted in the past that he wishes to remain an Arsenal player. So, when the transfer window is open it's also open for any club that is interested in our players.

"But if there is a fantastic opportunity on the table, you fight for that fantastic opportunity".
