Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he’s unsure if he will make another approach for Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez when the January transfer window opens in the new year, reports talkSPORT.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen in the wintertime or next season. He’s an Arsenal player. Of course we were interested in him (but) at the end Arsenal decided not to sell him. So, all the best for Alexis. I know him from Barcelona. And that’s all. Sometimes the deals work, sometimes not,” he said.

The Gunners were keen to let the disgruntled star leave for City but only if they manage to find a proper replacement. Having failed in their own bid to land AS Monaco star Thomas Lemar on the last day of the market, Arsenal pulled the plug on any potential deal involving Alexis Sanchez.

According to the Mirror, Arsenal will fight off interest from Manchester City for Alexis Sanchez this summer, with manager Arsene Wenger having the support of the board.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has his pick of clubs this summer, with Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea reportedly keen on his signature. The England international, who has just 12 months left on his current deal, looks set to leave Arsenal as a result of a lack of playing time in his favourite position, but where will he go?

Liverpool still lead the race for the midfielder, with manager Jurgen Klopp a big fan of Oxlade-Chamberlain. The Arsenal player’s industry and creativity would see him fit into the Reds side and be a useful player for their Champions League campaign in 2017/18. And with Arsenal out of the prestigious competition, while having reportedly not offered a formal deal to the 23-year-old, it’s hard to see him remaining at the Emirates Stadium.
