No bids for Alexis Sanchez – not all good news for Arsenal fans though
There have been no bids for Alexis Sanchez as yet, but it is not all good news for Arsenal fans.
According to David Ornstein of the BBC, Arsenal would be willing to part with their star man if the price was right.
No bids for Alexis Sanchez yet. May go if price right but may sign new deal. All hypothetical. Arsenal very reticent to sell to PL club #AFC

Of course, it is hard to know what that price is but based on reports throughout the summer it would seemingly be upwards of £50m.
Alexis has just a year to run on his current deal and has seemed reluctant to sign an extension at the club.
He is currently away at the Confederations Cup with Chile where he has led the team to the final after a win over Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal in the semi finals earlier this week.
Arsene Wenger will sit down with Sanchez to discuss his future at the conclusion of the tournament.
Bayern Munich have been the club most linked with a move for him, but it seems as though they do not have the financial power to match Arsenal, let alone other potential suitors such as Manchester City and PSG.
