Manchester City transfer news: City prepare a bid for Sanchez, Maguire a target and more: 9th January, 2018
All of the day's important transfer news, updates and rumours involving Manchester City.
Arsenal set asking price for Alexis Sanchez
Alexis Sanchez is in the last 6 months of his contract and would be free to choose any club after this season. Initially, Manchester City was willing to wait for the season to end, in order to get their man for free.
But with Gabriel Jesus injured for a long time, Pep Guardiola wants to sign Sanchez in January. While Arsenal also want to cash in on their prized asset instead of losing him for free in the summer.
According to the Metro, Arsenal want £40 million to sell the Chilean winger.
Manchester City interested in Harry Maguire
Harry Maguire was impressive for Hull City last season, but he couldn't save them from getting relegated. Leicester City signed the England centre-back in the summer transfer window.
The centre-back has been impressive this season and has caught the attention of many clubs. According to reports, Manchester City are keeping tabs on the progress of the defender.
The Premier League leaders are looking to sign a centre-back in the January window but it would be difficult to sign a player who joined his new club just 6 months back.
West Brom can agree to sell Jonny Evans
Manchester City are looking to sign a centre-back this window. A lot of rumours have linked the Premier League leaders to the Jonny Evans. The England International has a lot of experience of playing in the Premier League which can prove handy.
West Brom manager, Alan Pardew hinted that Baggies are ready to sell him if a good offer arrives. He said that it would be naive to for the Baggies to not accept a decent bid for the defender.
"As it stands at the moment there is no bid for Jonny, but if a bid comes in that is acceptable to the club, we are ready to go and move if we need to, It would be naïve not to have that plan in place. Hopefully, if it does happen, it will happen earlier rather than later for us." Alan Pardew said as quoted by the Manchester City Evening News
