Arsenal turn down Man City bid for Sanchez

Chelsea fear Liverpool will hijack £35m transfer in final 48 hours of window Alex Oxlade Chamberlain will leave Arsenal this summer

Alexis Sanchez has already agreed personal terms with Manchester City as the Chilean continues to force through his move away from Arsenal, according to reports.

Arsenal want Manchester City to include a player in any deal for Alexis Sanchez.

The Chile worldwide hit 24 Premier League goals for Arsene Wenger's side last season but is out of contract next summer and is yet to agree a new contract at Emirates Stadium. Although Arsene Wenger would prefer to sell Sanchez to another team, Manchester United could offer more than £60 million to land the Chilean.

But Mirror Sport understands there has now been direct contact between the clubs - and City have made the shock offer involving Sterling.

England forward Sterling has featured in all three of City's games so far this season.

Stafford and Lions Agree to Monumental Deal
The new contract, if he plays it out, will bring Stafford's total compensation to $262.2 million by the time he is 35. He's completed 61.5 percent of his pass attempts and thrown 108 interceptions.

Iraq recaptures Tal Afar center, citadel from Daesh
Majority of Tal Afar City has been reclaimed by the Iraqi forces after a weeklong battle with the Islamic State terrorists. Up to 2,000 militants were believed to be defending Tal Afar when the campaign to take back the city started on August 20.

Did Lalu try to inflate rally turnout with doctored image?
He warned saying: "If politics and religion mix, it will create troubles like what happened in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan". KC Tyagi also said that according to the law, Sharad Yadav might lose his Rajya Sabha membership for anti-party activity.

The England global faces increased competition for a place in Guardiola's starting XI following the summer arrival of Bernardo Silva and prior to his start against Bournemouth he was used as a substitute against Brighton and Everton. Wenger's stance may have shifted after two straight defeats and signs that, even with Sanchez, a top four place or a title push may prove beyond this group.

Sanchez joined Arsenal from Barcelona in 2014 for a fee of around £35m and won his second FA Cup with the Gunners last season.

City and Arsenal fans, what do you make of this potential player-plus-cash deal?

The Chile international's future has been a relentless source of speculation throughout the summer, with the 28-year-old having less than a year left to run on his contract in north London.
