Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Manchester City are set to push Arsenal with a late bid for Alexis Sanchez, as according to reports in the Mirror they are reportedly offering £70 million for the Chilean.
Pep Guardiola is determined to reunite with Sanchez once again, having previously worked together at Barcelona. Guardiola has been busy this summer doing a major revamping of his squad and a move for Sanchez would send their total spending to almost £250m.
Arsene Wenger is adamant the Gunners are prepared to risk losing Sanchez for free next summer and have offered him £300,000 per week to sign an extension of his contract with the Gunners.
In addition to Sanchez, City remain in the market for a centre-back and will bid £20m for Middlesbrough’s Ben Gibson.
