Alexis Sanchez is on the verge of signing for Manchester City

The injury suffered by Gabriel Jesus could speed up Manchester City's pursuit of Alexis Sanchez, with the Chilean now on the verge of signing for the Premier League leaders.

Pep Guardiola wanted the forward last summer too, only for Arsene Wenger to block any move.

The Arsenal coach still doesn't want to strengthen a domestic rival, however he knows that this is a way of earning some money for the player, whose contract is to expire at the end of the current campaign.

Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich were also linked with the 29-year-old last summer, while other clubs have expressed interest in him now, given that he would be able to play in the Champions League knockouts.

Yet any team to have approached the player has learned that an agreement was already in place between Sanchez and Guardiola for next summer.

Gabriel Jesus' injury could now bring that move north forward.
