IT’S HAPPENING!!!! According to a report from the Daily Mirror, Arsenal have agreed in principle to a £60 million bid from Manchester City for striker Alexis Sánchez.

The report from Simon Mullock of the Mirror says Arsenal will let Sánchez move to the Etihad as soon as they’re able to sign Thomas Lemar from AS Monaco on a £90 million deal. Lemar to Arsenal looks like a real possibility, so it’s quite likely that Alexis will be a Blue over the next few hours.

City will pay Arsenal a £55 million fee up front with another £5 million in performance bonuses to be added later, and if it all goes well, we should have an announcement soon.

THIS IS REALLY FREAKING HAPPENING!
