Manchester City are the only club interested in signing Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez this summer, according to Kaveh Solhekol.

The Chile international has been linked with a potential summer transfer throughout the current window but a deal has failed to materialise for the 28-year-old so far.

Sanchez has already entered the final 12 months of his Arsenal contract to throw up the possibility of the South American leaving on a free transfer next summer.

The South American was initially linked with a potential switch to Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain and Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

However, Manchester City entered the race to sign the Chile star over the past month or so despite Arsenal’s reluctance to sell to a direct title rival.

Sanchez started his first Premier League game of the 2017-18 season at Anfield on Sunday as the Gunners suffered a humiliating 4-0 loss to Liverpool.

Sky Sports News reporter Solhekol confirmed that Manchester City are the only suitors for Arsenal striker Sanchez ahead of Thursday’s transfer deadline.

“Alexis Sanchez was on PSG’s shortlist but they’ve landed massive deals for Neymar and Kylian Mbappe,” Solhekol told Sky Sports News on Monday morning.

“That leaves Manchester City and they’re big admirers of Sanchez. He played for the first time this season at Anfield on Sunday.”

Sanchez scored 24 times in 37 games in the Premier League last season as the Gunners ended up in fifth place in the Premier League table.

Arsenal have signed Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette and Schalke 04 defender Sead Kolasinac.
