The 28-year-old looked set to be reunited with Guardiola, whom he played under at Barcelona, only for his £60m move to collapse on deadline day after Arsenal failed to secure a replacement.

The Chile worldwide, 28, has previously worked with Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola at Barcelona, and he could link up with his former manager in a blockbuster deal that would strengthen the hand of a City side, who have won their last 20 games in all competitions.

Speculation surrounding Sanchez's future dominated headlines throughout the transfer window, alongside fellow contract rebel Mesut Ozil.

And the players will be looking to keep a smile on their face when they welcome the Belarusian giants to the Emirates. If it is my decision, then yes. As long as they are here they give their best for the club.

There is a huge likelihood that the pair are playing their hearts out in their bid to attract interest from potential suitors with their futures being up in the air, but there could well be the possibility that they are fighting to stay also. "Unless something unbelievable happens I don't see that changes".

Sanchez came close to joining Man City over the summer while Ozil has been linked with a move to rivals Manchester United.

According to the report, Guardiola feels the foundations have been built to mount a challenge on the Premier League and UEFA Champions League crowns this term, and Sanchez would add a key piece of quality to the squad.
