Ex-striker explains why Alexis Sanchez wants to leave Arsenal

Wenger surprisingly chose to rest the Chilean among several first-team regulars for the FA Cup defeat at Nottingham Forest, and this is likely to be of benefit for the Citizens with the attacker likely to be eligible to feature Cup competition as well as the Champions League.

Liverpool could also revive their interest, having tried to sign him when he left Barcelona for Arsenal in 2014, with money to spend following the £142million sale of Philippe Coutinho to the Catalan club.

Joey Barton has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 8th January, that he highly doubts that Alexis Sanchez would join Liverpool. Arsene Wenger is determined to hang on to his top players in this window, but we know they're also keen to strengthen the squad.

On Monday, the London Evening Standard have an update on Alexis Sanchez and his Arsenal future. It appears nearly certain they will be losing the forward, and if he does stay beyond the current window, they'd receive no transfer fee for Sanchez at the end of the season.

The injury to Gabriel Jesus is thought to have had an impact.

Moore's Democratic rival, Doug Jones , was sworn in Wednesday as the next senator of Alabama. Johnson and her family reportedly lost everything in the fire.

Jesus is now set to be sidelined for the best part of six weeks.

Manchester City are said to be confident of landing the Arsenal man for as little as £25 million.

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez is so desperate to leave the Gunners this month that he's prepared to give up a £25m signing-on fee to sign for Manchester City in the January transfer window.

City's hierarchy believe that a deal in the region of £30m could be struck, although reports suggest the two clubs are still afar off in the player's valuation.
