Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been backed into a corner this transfer window and even the most optimistic fan would say that the whole saga with Sanchez has been nothing short of a disaster.
Realising that he is unable to hold on to his star performer, Wenger is now hoping to squeeze City for Sergio Agüero and rather than being a long shot, it could actually come off.
Pep Guardiola is desperate to take the North London club’s Jewel in the crown and has been salivating over the Chilean all transfer window long and with Agüero falling down the pecking order, Arsenal feel they could spin the deal in their favour.
I firmly believe that this deal is purely down to Agüero himself, having realised that his playing opportunities are going to be few and far between.
He is the type of player the Manager likes and would fit the creative Arsenal mould without any trouble at all.
Wenger is under pressure to top up the ranks after departure of Oxlade-Chamberlain and the Manchester City striker would certainly go some way to easing the pain of that move to rivals Liverpool and Sanchez opting to rejoin Pep.
Much was said about Arsenal looking at a move for Raheem Sterling but that interest has no chance of materialising. Neither Sterling or Wenger were interested in that sideways shuffle.
Riyad Mahrez was a consideration but it’s only 50% likely that the particular deal will go through because Arsenal haven’t tabled a firm bid but with time running out, it may still go ahead.
In terms of Jonny Evans, the defender is more likely to go to Arsenal because as a former United player, Evans may not be able to make that particular move despite the riches and ambition of United’s Neighbour.
