BBC pundit predicts this star will join Arsenal from Premier League rivals
Alexis Sanchez came very close to joining Man City on deadline day.
Arsenal were scrambling to complete a deal for Thomas Lemar that would have opened up the chance for the Chilean to seal his move.
Many expect City to come back in for Sanchez in January but it is the other claim of Joanthan Pearce that catches the eye.
His prediction is that Sergio Aguero could well head in the other direction.
Aguero is the top goalscorer in the Premier League this season having scored six goals already.
However, Pearce believes that City could let him go in order to seal the deal for Sanchez.
“He [Guardiola] still wants Sanchez, that could happen in January,” Pearce told BBC Radio 5 Live. “Highly probable that will happen in January.
“And it wouldn’t surprise me at all if Aguero comes here.
“It was mooted in the summer, wouldn’t surprise me at all.”
It seems unlikely with Aguero seemingly settling into Pep Guardiola’s system after something of a rocky start.
Guardiola did not seem happy with some of Aguero’s contributions to the team but his fantastic start to the season makes an improbable deal look almost impossible now.
