Reports in France indicate that Arsenal are willing to let Alexis Sanchez leave in the January window in order to receive a fee for the Chilean (via The Metro).
It seems that this transfer saga may be taken another turn. After coming so close to joining Manchester City on deadline day, Alexis Sanchez could be given another chance.
The Chilean was the subject of much interest over the summer and eventually stayed at Arsenal but reports in France indicate that the Gunners are willing to sell the forward in January.
Sanchez is in the final year of his contract at the Emirates and it seems that the Gunners would rather get a fee in January than risk losing him for free.
We reported earlier in the week that Serie A giants AC Milan were ready to make a £75 million bid for the forward in the January window.

If there is any truth in that then that is something the Gunners should absolutely look to take advantage of.
It remains to be seen where Alexis Sanchez will play his football next season. It almost certainly won’t be at the Emirates but it could be at the San Siro. Let’s hope there is some truth in the talk of that big money AC Milan bid and the Gunners can wrap a deal up.
