What the papers say
Manchester City will return to Arsenal with an offer of around £70million for Alexis Sanchez on transfer deadline day and have already sent a team of legal and medical officials to South America to finalise a deal with the Chile international – who is on World Cup duty – if the Gunners give the green light for a transfer, reports the Independent.
Arsenal could sanction Sanchez’s sale but only if they can complete a deal for Paris St Germain playmaker Julian Draxler, according to the Mirror.
Staying in London, and Premier League rivals Tottenham and West Ham are going head-to-head to sign Portugal midfielder Andre Gomes on a season-long loan from Barcelona, according to the Telegraph.
Tottenham could also launch a late bid to pip Chelsea in the race for Swansea striker Fernando Llorente, the Sun says. Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino wants support for Harry Kane and powerful Spain forward Llorente fits the bill.
