Alexis Sanchez has been left out of the Arsenal squad to face Bournemouth on Sunday amid fevered speculation linking the Chile international with a move away from Emirates Stadium.

Sanchez is out of contract at the end of the season and, with no indication he is willing to agree a new deal, can leave on a free transfer in June unless the Gunners agree to sell the 29-year-old for a reduced fee this month.

A switch to rejoin his former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola at Manchester City fell through on deadline day in August, when Arsenal were unable to bring in Thomas Lemar from Monaco.

And while City are still believed to be keen to sign Sanchez, Manchester United have reportedly sought to hijack his proposed move to the runaway Premier League leaders.

Arsenal could be set to finally lose Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City, if the Independent are to be believed. City have been chasing Sanchez for a long time now and remain keen to secure his services this month. Pep Guardiola wants to reunite with Sanchez having enjoyed a good relationship with him at Barcelona and will now hope that he can strike a deal with Arsenal. Sanchez’s deal at the Emirates expires at the end of the season and it seems he has no intention of putting pen to paper on a new contract. The ongoing contractual situation with Mesut Ozil is much the same. Manchester City made attempts to lure Sanchez away from Arsenal late on in the summer, with the league leaders lodging a £60m bid for him on deadline day. The deal looked set to go through, but Arsenal failed to secure Sanchez’s likely replacement Thomas Lemar from Monaco. Now, though, it seems Arsenal will be forced into a sale, with contacts close to the Chilean, as claimed by the Independent, confident that Sanchez could be a City player in the imminent future.
