Manchester City's director of football Txiki Begiristain has been in London to wrap up a deal to sign Alexis Sanchez, according to reports.
The report says that City will be prepared to wait for Sanchez as they believe Arsenal will try and make it difficult for a deal to be done that would keep him in the Premier League and would prefer him to go abroad.
Arsenal have made a £30m bid for RB Leipzil star Emil Forsberg - but face a battle with Bayern Munich, according to the Daily Mirror.

Wenger also is keen to make Riyad Mahrez his first signing of the summer, according to the Mirror.
