Arsene Wenger confirms Alexis Sanchez's transfer is 'imminent' after Manchester United's offer

Asked if he expected Sanchez's future to be determined imminently, he said: "Yes".

And according to the Independent, snapping up the Chile superstar will not change United's stance on Ozil, also 29.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has hinted that Henrikh Mkhitaryan could be sold as doubts remain over the out-of-favour playmaker.

Speaking on BT Sport on Saturday, Ferdinand said that Sanchez would be better off joining City than his former employers.

The Mirror have reported that United are leading the race for Sanchez and that they're prepared to pay the Chilean a staggering £350,000 per week.

Following the sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, earlier this week, the Anfield club have over £140 million at their disposal to add fresh attacking impetus to Jurgen Klopp's squad and, with Sanchez available for £35 million, a relative bargain in today's market, a bid for the 28-year-old seems to make ideal sense.

Sanchez who came in as a substitute in Arsenal's 0-0 draw against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semifinal has grown out of favour at Emirates and is seeking trophies in his career.

Arsene Wenger confirms that a decision over the future of Alexis Sanchez is close to being made, having omitted the Chilean forward from his squad to face Bournemouth.

The Armenian was one of Mourinho's first signings in the summer of 2016 but inconsistency has blighted the playmaker since he joined from Borussia Dortmund for £26.3million. We build a squad with this idea, this philosophy I share with the club's owners.

"So he wants to fight as well for the Premier League, that's normal, when you are at that level". If it happens, it happens.
