And the Daily Star reports only a pay package which would see him become the Premier League’s highest paid player would suffice.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba earns the most of any player in the league on £290,000 a week.

Man City boss Pep Guardiola is desperate to sign Sanchez, 28.

When asked whether City are still considering a move for the former Barcelona ace, he said: “He’s an Arsenal player, like [Jonny] Evans is a West Brom player. You have to ask Alexis.”

Sanchez missed Arsenal’s start to the season after picking up a training injury.

But Arsene Wenger insists his star player is fit ahead of today’s trip to Anfield – and has not let transfer speculation affect him.

He said: “He’s always been focused on his job – he loves to play football.”

🚨 EXCLUSIVE OFFER: Premier League Top Goalscorer 🚨

ROMELU LUKAKU has come in to 2/1 to finish as the Premier League top scorer.

The Belgian scored twice against West Ham on Sunday to put an immediate market down in the Golden Boot race.

Harry Kane, who has NEVER scored a goal in August, is 2/1.

And there is value to be had in Alexandre Lacazette.

He is 8/1 even after scoring on his debut against Leicester last week.

Sun Bets have a blinding special offer for top scorer.

If you bet £25 on any player to top the table at the end of the season, they’ll give a £5 free bet for every game he scores in until October.

The offer is valid until midnight August 27 and is open to ALL customers.

Wenger is hoping Sanchez can form a deadly partnership with Alexandre Lacazette to add firepower to the team.

The Frenchman said: “Their co-operation looks promising. The two are good goalscorers, good finishers, good passers, have good assists — that means they can find each other.

“The rest will be more about the desire to play with each other, but usually the good players have that.”
