Sanchez: Arsenal demand £40m from City

  • Report: Manchester City bid for Alexis Sanchez

Should a deal be done, Alexis will be eligible to play in the Champions League knockout stage for Manchester City, with clubs allowed to add one player who has competed in the Europa League to their squads.

Alexis was left out of Arsenal's squad for the trip to the City ground.

City's £60 million bid for Sanchez in August collapsed after Arsenal failed in a deadline day attempt to sign Monaco's Thomas Lemar as a replacement.

Nvidia partners with Uber, Volkswagen in self-driving technology
But the company operated largely in secret until last week when it announced partnerships with Volkswagen Group and Hyundai. They're betting big on autonomous vehicles and their Drive IX technology is one of the most advanced platforms around.

Reports in Chile suggest this decision was at the behest of City but it is believed Wenger had planned to leave out Sanchez in any case as part of wholesale changes to give several players a breather following the busy Christmas period.

City are also considering buying a centre-back in the transfer window, with West Bromwich Albion's Jonny Evans remaining a leading option, although ironically they could face competition from Arsenal for the Northern Ireland global.

The news that James Tarkowski has signed a new long-term deal with Burnley has forced a re-think for Pep Guardiola and Manchester City as they look for defensive signings, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Egypt's Salah voted African Player of the Year
This is the first year the organisers have also allowed captains to vote for the continent's best player. Egypt was voted the team of the year, with manager Hector Cuper winning Africa's coach of the year.

And Man City are the favourites to land the 29-year-old.

The injury to Gabriel Jesus is thought to have had an impact. According to the Evening Standard, that will happen soon with City preparing to bid for the Chile worldwide and Arsenal setting a price tag.

Sanchez's contract at Arsenal is set to expire at the end of the season, and it does not seem that he is likely to pen a new deal any time soon.

Death toll in terrorist attack in Kabul rises to 20 people
The deadly attack comes a week after 41 people were killed and 84 others injured in an IS attack that targeted Shiites in Kabul. President Ashraf Ghani late on January 4 called the attack "inhumane" and against the tenets of Islam.

Former Liverpool FC and Manchester City striker Bellamy believes Sanchez is in desperate need of a fresh start to reboot his career.
