Manchester City are monitoring Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez ahead of a possible January move, according to the Daily Express.
The Chilean, who has a contract until 2018 with the Gunners, is currently involved in contract negotiations with the North London club.

The report from the Express claims that City are closely monitoring Sanchez situation and ready to move in for him if his negotiations with his current club break down.
City manager Pep Guardiola rates the Chile international highly and previously signed him when he was in charge of Barcelona.

The 27-year-old has made a fine start to the new season and has already scored four goals for the Gunners in all competitions.
