Sky is reporting now that Manchester City have returned and upped their bid for Alexis Sanchez from £50 to £55M+5M as add on.
It is £10m less than the expected bid of £70 reported yesterday, Arsenal have not turned this down but have asked for time to sort out replacement.
Yes, we reported this morning that Wenger is only willing to sanction the sale of Sanchez unless a replacement is found.
The latest name now is back to square one, THOMAS LEMAR!
Wenger was after Lemar throughout the transfer window but gave up saying Monaco does not want to sell.
In the intervening period, numerous clubs have made advances and it then seems Monaco will sell at the right price, seeing the departure of Sanchez is inevitable, Wenger is desperate for another a marque arrival.
Guillem Balague, the popular spanish pundit is now reporting that Arsenal is back in for Thomas Lemar and are confident to get him.
This also probably mean Arsenal is not working on Mahrez or Draxler then?
