Arsenal boss makes Palace winger top choice to replace Sanchez

Arsenal want Wilfried Zaha to replace Alexis Sanchez if he leaves for Manchester City

GETTY Arsenal want Wilfried Zaha to replace Alexis Sanchez if he leaves for Manchester City

Arsene Wenger revealed yesterday that he will be on the lookout for "exceptional" players this month and vowed to replace both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil with world-class players should they end up leaving.

He nearly made the move to the Etihad on transfer deadline day last summer, but the collapse of a move for his replacement Thomas Lemar, saw Sanchez forced to stay at the club a little longer. "But when? That is very hard to say because it does not depend only on us". But it would be in Arsenal's best interest to sell him in the next window if he keeps stalling over a new deal, something which appears very likely at the moment. Whoever does it, we don't care about that, go and celebrate with your team-mate.

"We focus on our own problems, that's the only thing".

Now, the Daily Mirror are reporting that Arsenal's stance has softened on Sanchez and a fee of more than £25million could see them part ways with their star this winter.

Battling to hide his fury, Wenger said: "It wasn't a penalty".

A night after knocking down seven 3-pointers in Orlando, he hit on 8-of-15 from behind the 3-point line. They didn't stay on top for long though as the Rockets scored the next 11 points to go up 85-79.

Soon after City's game, and hours before Arsenal kicked off, Guardiola said there would be "internal meetings" over whether the club would make a bid for Alexis Sanchez in light of the injury to Jesus.

"I am ready to play every day as long as our opponent has the same time recovery over Christmas".

"I have given my answer many times in the press conference and I don't see why I should come back on a subject we have talked about 155 times". "Today with Kevin I don't know what will happen in the future about the last action".

We're not even sure of what to take from it, but La Cuarta look wrong on this one.

"Only once they leave can Arsenal draw a line under this issue". "A 2-2 draw against Arsenal at Emirates could be a good result but after the game there is a lot of disappointment because we created important chances".
