Arsene Wenger comments on Alexis to City and battle with City for Jonny Evans

Manchester City and Arsenal’s paths seem destined to cross in the transfer window, with a host of reports that not only are City trying to prise Alexis Sanchez away from the Emirates this month, but are also battling the Gunners for West Brom’s Jonny Evans.

Arsene Wenger has revealed that the North London club have not yet had a formal approach for Alexis, though.

When asked if he expects the 28-year-old to leave this month, Wenger said: “I expect nothing, I am focused on tomorrow’s game.

“When solicitations happen you respond, at the moment it’s very quiet.”

On the case of Baggies skipper Jonny Evans, Wenger admits that Arsenal won’t be able to win a financial battle against City if both clubs go for the same man.

“I don’t know if Manchester City is in for anybody, I don’t know their policy,” Wenger said. “But if the decision comes to finances with Manchester City we know we will be second best. That is well known.”
