Discussions are believed to be underway between Klopp and Liverpool's owners, Fenway Sports Group about lodging a potential bid for Sanchez, although it will be hard for the Merseyside club to persuade the Chilean to move to Anfield due to both City and United being able to offer significantly higher wages than the Reds. It is likely that the wantaway striker will be playing for Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, with just the small matter of "when" to be ironed out, and former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand seems to think so.

After months of speculation claiming Sanchez could be on his way to Manchester City, reports on Sunday morning claim Jose Mourinho's United are suddenly in pole position to land the Chile forward.

And Cole believes that Mourinho needs to take advantage of this window of opportunity to sign Sanchez this month.

"His situation is not completely decided one way or the other, so I left him at home". 5, Mourinho has harboured long-term doubts over Mkhitaryan's ability to influence big games and the United manager had been prepared to use the Armenian to tempt Arsenal last summer.

When asked whether news was imminent, Wenger told Sky Sports: "Yes, [but] don't read too much into it because I don't know what way it'll go".

Then along came Manchester United, who were willing to better City's offer with a £35 million bid of their own or a part exchange involving Armenian playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Arsene Wenger confirms that a decision over the future of Alexis Sanchez is close to being made, having omitted the Chilean forward from his squad to face Bournemouth.

He says he feels sorry for Arsenal fans who will have to soon watch Sanchez play for one of their rivals.
