Sanchez, who nearly joined Manchester City in the summer, is reportedly close to agreeing a January move to the Etihad.

"Look, I have no problem if he signs now or in June", Wenger said. I want him to stay for longer because he's a very important players for us.

Those changes are the start of a fresh recruitment drive at the club which is likely to transfer itself onto a clear-out of the playing side, with France midfielder Coquelin, who wants to leave in search of regular playing time, targeted by West Ham and the subject of enquiries from teams in Ligue 1 and Turkey.

The new Game Boy will work to provide the original Game Boy experience that many adults today remember from their childhood. A SNES Classic Edition debuted in 2017, meaning that 1996's Nintendo 64 would be next up according to chronological order.

"You have to accept as well when you play so many games, and Sanchez plays every game, that sometimes a breather in the middle of the season helps them a little bit".

However, it is expected that attempting to match Mkhitaryan's £200,000-a-week wages would be a major stumbling block in negotiations.

But on Thursday there's been a huge spanner thrown into the works as Man United and Liverpool have entered the Alexis Sanchez race.
