Arsenal have wanted to keep Sanchez all summer and Arsene Wenger has insisted he is not for sale.
But Sky Sports’ Spanish Football expert believes they are in talks to sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco and are confident of completing a deal.
Sanchez is in the last year of his contract and has so far failed to agree new terms But Wenger said earlier this month that he hoped the former Barcelona man would extend his contract.
Sanchez is currently in with Chile national squad ahead of their World Cup Qualifiers and Sky Sports News understands that City officials are in the country in preparation to complete any potential deal.
