Manchester City continue to be linked with Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.

The Daily Mirror say City offered £60m for the Chilean during the summer but, with his value seemingly falling because he is in the final year of his contract, they will look to sign him in January for £20m.

The Mirror believe Sanchez has made up his mind that he wants to join City, apparently leaving the club in a strong position.

The Mirror also say both Arsenal and Liverpool will move for Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar next summer.

The Sun have picked up on reports in Italy claiming that Arsenal could make a January move for Napoli defender Nikola Maksimovic.

Meanwhile, The Sun continue to link Tottenham’s Danny Rose with Manchester United.

The newspaper say United are ready to make a £50m bid for the England left-back in January but that it will be a “tough ask” to prise him away from Spurs.
