Reports: Arsenal Identify Two Replacements For Sanchez

Amid reports that Alexis Sanchez's move to Manchester City is edging ever closer, Arsenal have reportedly identified two favourites to replace the Chilean.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see Arsenal's two reported targets to replace Sanchez.

According to Sky Sports' Gianluca Di Marzio, Sanchez has already agreed to a City contract worth £13 million (218 million) a season, with two options.

Either City will sign the Chilean in January for a fee of £20 million, with Sanchez receiving a £15 million (R252 million) signing-on bonus, or the 29-year-old will sign for Pep Guardiola's side on a free deal in July, and with the player getting a £30 million (R503 million) signing-on bonus.

Di Marzio also reported that Arsenal representatives will meet Brazilian attacker Malcom on Wednesday. The 20-year-old has impressed with seven goals and four assists for Bordeaux in Ligue 1 this season.

The Gunners have reportedly also enquired about the availability of Boca Juniors' Cristian Pavon. The 21-year-old recently made his Argentina debut, and has a £27 million (R453 million) release clause in his contract.

Sanchez, meanwhile, is expected to start for Arsenal in their Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea after manager Arsene Wenger insisted the club has not received any official bid for the player.

"I expect nothing, I am focused on tomorrow's game,” Wenger said on Tuesday, as quoted by Sky Sports.

"When solicitations happen you respond, at the moment it's very quiet."
