It appears that every report concerning Manchester United at the moment has to do with the impending arrival of Alexis Sanchez.

It is no longer news that Manchester United and Arsenal are set to carry out a swap deal involving Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Well after a few delays and hiccups along the way, the deal is finally almost over the line according to latest reports.
The delays regarding the deal had to do with the Man United man, who needed convincing to join the Gunners (and who can blame him considering where Arsenal stand at the moment).

According to reports Alexis Sanchez has said his goodbyes to his Arsenal teammates and was left out of their squad for their game against Crystal Palace.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan who has reportedly agreed to terms with the North London club was also left out of the Man United squad.

There were also reports that the Chilean international, Sanchez was expected to be on a flight to Manchester on Friday night after checking out of his hotel.

These reports have led to the conclusion that the deal is set to be announced with many reports claiming it is will be made public as early as Saturday night.

Although no official statements have been made at this time we can safely assume that by the next Premier League game week Alexis Sanchez will be a Man United player and Henrikh Mkhitaryan an Arsenal player.

Ousmane Dembele

It has been revealed that should Liverpool succeed in the capture of Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele, it would be bad news for their Premier League title rivals Chelsea.

The French forward has been linked to the Anfield ahead of the January transfer window and Liverpool are keen to break the bank in order to have his signature.

The Reds boss Jurgen Klopp who is a big fan of the player is ready to break the bank to launch a whopping sum of £85 million offer for the player with the hope that it could tempt the Spanish giants into giving him away.

However, cashing in on Dembele is believed to boost the financial power of the Camp Nou team to be able to make an offer for Chelsea star Eden Hazard.

Reports according to El Gol Digital reveal that Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde is a fan of the Belgium international and has already made a request for him.

Meanwhile, Hazard is being wanted at Real Madrid with the Bernabeu side willing to meet his fee but the West London side have been reluctant in having the player leave.

Although, Hazard recently declared his wish to play at Real Madrid having stated that the Los Blancos remains a childhood dream club.

Daniel Sturridge

Liverpool fans seem to be losing patience with English international Daniel Sturridge as the majority of them wants him out of the Anfield with a replacement already mentioned.

The fans became furious with the player after the charge by the FA against him which accused him of allegedly breaching the betting rules which also relates to his loan move to West Brom in January this year.

In reaction to the allegation, a Liverpool spokesman told BBC Sports that the English forward is not guilty of the charge and has never gambled on football, adding that the player has been questioned and he has explained the whole situation.

However, coupled with the fact that Sturridge has been unable to win the heart of the German manager for a first-team shirt, the fans are unhappy with him and wants him out of the club.

Nicolas Pépé

Sky Sports pundit Guillem Balague has confirmed that Premier League giants Arsenal have approached Lille for forward Nicolas Pepe with a view to a move when the transfer window reopens in January.

The report from footballtalk revealed that the Gunners have been told that only a bid of €50m (£43m) would be enough to secure his signing from the French Ligue 1 side.

Ivorian international star Pepe has been in impressive form for Lille in the 2018/19 league season.

He has scored eight goals and provided seven assists in 13 Ligue 1 appearances for Lille and his sensational output has propelled his team into the top three on the league table.

His suitors Arsenal are in the market for a new forward following the serious injury sustained by Danny Welbeck.

The 27-year-old England international player suffered a season-ending injury in the Europa League outing with Sporting Lisbon at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night.

Welbeck broke his right ankle during the game which ended goalless on Thursday night.

He has since undergone two surgeries to correct the problem that will see him miss the majority of what’s left of this season.

Several forwards have been linked with the North Londoners as a possible replacement for the injured Welbeck.

Ousmane Dembele

A latest twist have emerged in Liverpool’s alleged pursuit of Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele as it is now being reported that the Reds are not interested in bringing him to the Anfield.

Before now, the Anfield side were reported to have beaten other clubs in their interest for the French forward and it was believed that they were already preparing a bid to be launched for him in the coming winter transfer window.

The Liverpool Echo newspaper had revealed that manager Jurgen Klopp is not planning any move for the Barcelona man in the January window; hence a bid will not be submitted.

The reports of Dembele leaving the Camp Nou is as a result of his inability to impress since having a big-money move from Borussia Dortmund, prompting Premier League giants like Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United to show interest in the player.

However, Dembele’s agent earlier claimed that his player was not thinking of a move away from the Camp Nou but will remain to fight for a starting role at the club.

The agent argued that the former Borrusia Dortmund has a lot of time to make the starting XI because of his young age which is a reason why he will not rush out of the club.
