According to reports, Liverpool have made contact with North London giants Arsenal over completing the switch of Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez ahead of top Premier League clubs like Manchester United and Manchester City.
The Alexis Sanchez saga has taken a different switch today, after several months of the rumour that made it look a near-sure that the forward will end up at the Etihad Stadium.
British media reports that the Citizens failed to land the former Barcelona man late last summer after the gunners pulled out of the move due to not being able to sign a replacement, but they have continued to be strongly linked with the attacker since then.
A recent report suggests the South American could be close to joining City by the weekend, though that now looks much less sure.
Another report today has linked the forward as a transfer target for Jose Mourinho’s side in a possible swap deal involving Armenian Henrikh Mkhitaryan moving the other way, even if the player prefers to reunite with Pep Guardiola.
Now, the Daily Express in a report claims potential approach from the Reds, who have been strongly linked with other attackers after Brazilian Philippe Coutinho’s recent move to FC Barcelona.
Top Chilean journalist Maks Cardenas suggests the Merseysider’s have been in contact with the Gunners about this surprise signing, though the newsman also maintains that the Arsenal man still desires to move to Manchester City.
