Pep Guardiola gives Alexis Sanchez transfer update after Gabriel Jesus injury

Pep Guardiola gives Alexis Sanchez transfer update after Gabriel Jesus injury

Chilean star Alexis Sanchez unfollowed his Arsenal team mate Mohamed El-Neny after Egyptian central midfielder tweeted about his absence from the World Cup.

Guardiola, who worked with Sanchez at Barcelona, was close to reuniting with him previous year as City made a move to sign him before the end of the summer transfer window.

"We will do, but when is very hard to say because it doesn't depend only on us".

The transfer of Sanchez is expected to be impacted by Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil's contract negotiations as the Gunners will not want to lose all three players ahead of next season.

"I'm really pleased for them that we got something for them to enjoy, if only for a little while".

"You can not have West Brom to prepare five days for a game like that, (and) we have three", he said.

However, one slice of encouragement for the hosts is that they have in fact won their last two home league games against Arsenal.

The Germany worldwide is one of the most sought-after players in the Bundesliga, although Arsene Wenger may have to beat off competition from the likes of the Bundesliga champions, as well as Barcelona and Liverpool, in order to sign the 22-year-old next season. "We have to live with the decision, to swallow it and go to the next game".

"We have the same problem against Chelsea".

Wenger said the awarding of the penalty was "difficult to accept", and complained about the standard of refereeing.

City attempted to sign Sanchez last summer, launching a £60m bid on August's Deadline Day, and have been linked with a January move for the Arsenal forward following an injury to Gabriel Jesus.

"We are out there, and look of course to do some things, yes", he said.

"I have given my answer many times in the press conference and I don't see why I should come back on a subject we have talked about 155 times".

"Only once they leave can Arsenal draw a line under this issue".

"Today is completely different to 2004".
