Alexis Sanchez had medical on Wednesday in Manchester - Huge deadline day claim

Similarly with fellow contract rebel Mesut Ozil ship them out and allow the summer to rebuild

Jose Mourinho has been in the market for another attacker this summer and the newspaper says he's keen to sign the 28-year-old after struggling to agree a deal with Inter Milan for Ivan Perisic.

Manchester City have attempted to break the impasse over Alexis Sánchez's future at Arsenal by indicating that they would be prepared to include Raheem Sterling in a deal for the Chilean forward.

Speaking ahead of Chile's World Cup Qualifier on Thursday evening against Paraguay, Pizzi said: "He is very, very good".

"If you look at Arsenal today I really enjoy watching them play, they play some really good football", Vieira - victor of three Premier League titles with Arsenal - added. But one way or another, his future will be great. Then there is no reason for him to be dissatisfied or annoyed. Both options are excellent.

As the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup draws nearer, Sterling, just like other English players will be looking for first team football, in order to increase his chances to be called up into Gareth Southgate's squad. "The conditions he has at Arsenal are spectacular".

"We want to be better than last season".

"In many occasions, the decisions don´t depend on one person, there are other interests involved and the player can not control them".

"That is why there is a period, that the associations consider logic".

"That's basically it. Of course, you can analyse the chances we gave away, but I just think overall the performance was not at the requested level". To have that freedom is good but if you can get them to respect the tactical aspect of the game it will be even better.

The latest report has spun the original story 180-degrees though, with Sky Sports now receiving information that Arsenal would be willing to pay a fee and Alexis Sanchez to sign Sterling.

Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere's contracts all expire next summer.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger branded his side's surrender in the 4-0 rout by Liverpool on Sunday as unacceptable and "absolutely disastrous" as his tenure became engulfed in fresh crisis just three games into the new Premier League season.
