Manchester City are set to bid just £20m for Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez when the transfer window reopens in January, according to the Mail Online.
The Citizens had been strongly linked with a move for the Chile international during the summer with a proposed transfer worth £60m collapsing on deadline day due to the Gunners not bringing a replacement in in time.
The 28 year old is currently in the final of his contract, and just six months will remain on that deal in January so City will attempt to bid just a third of their initial offer as they look to finally get their man.
Sanchez worked with Pep Guardiola at Barcelona during the 2011/12 campaign when together they won the Copa Del Rey and finished as runners-up in La Liga.
He has racked up one hundred and forty-five appearances in all competitions for Arsene Wenger’s side so far, scoring seventy-two goals.
