Manchester City remain very keen to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal before Deadline Day ends, according to Sky sources.
Sky Sports News understands City will improve on an unsuccessful £50m offer, with club officials in Chile to help co-ordinate any medical or personal negotiations if a deal is agreed between the two clubs.
Sanchez has less than 11 months remaining on his current contract and is yet to sign terms on a fresh deal at the Emirates.
Arsenal denied claims Sanchez had handed in a transfer request on Monday night, but Chilean media T13 reported on Tuesday that the 28-year-old had asked to leave the Chile training camp to "conduct personal business".
Arsene Wenger has reiterated his desire to keep Sanchez throughout the summer and said earlier this month that he hoped the former Barcelona man would extend his contract.
But it is understood the winger will not be leaving Manchester City for Arsenal before the transfer deadline.
