Manchester City have made a new approach for Alexis Sanchez after Gabriel Jesus’ injury, according to reports.

City continue to be interested in Alexis after failing to sign him during the summer.

They were interested before the injury to Gabriel Jesus, but could now move forward with their plans to sign him.

According to Sam Lee of Goal.com, City have made a new approach for the Chilean.

City fans seem to rate Lee as a very reliable source of information for Manchester City transfer news.

The Daily Mail report that Arsenal would consider offers of £35m for the forward, which is almost half the fee they could have got in the summer.

If that is the case, it shouldn’t take long for the deal to be completed.

Arsene Wenger has been adamant that Alexis will not be sold halfway through the season.

However, he held the same position throughout the summer transfer window before agreeing to sell him on the final day.

Despite not being at this best, Alexis is the club’s second highest goalscorer this season and has performed well in the big games.

Losing him now would be a big blow, no matter what fans have come to think of him.
