Kevin De Bruyne would welcome Alexis Sanchez's arrival at Manchester City

On Tuesday, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger evaded questions of Sanchez' potential transfer to Man City.

'When he comes he will add something to the team, ' said the Belgium ace. Obviously we will see what happens in this transfer period.

But it appears Pep Guardiola's side will test Arsenal's resolve, once again.

Sanchez's acquisition would enhance that further still as they compete for multiple trophies and make a slip-up in the Premier League, which they lead by 15 points, even less likely to occur.

Arsenal have two key clashes against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semi-finals this month, though, and despite his mixed form this year, their best chance of overcoming the Blues is with Sanchez in the team.

The Gunners snubbed a £60m bid last summer because there was not enough time for them to get a deal done for their No.1 target, Monaco's Thomas Lemar. 'We have five days and that will be good. Our Christmas period is four months already!

City have not won at Anfield since 2003. "It is just the way football goes".

De Bruyne is relaxed about his own situation as he prepares to sign a new contract at the Etihad worth in excess of £200,000 a week.

"We are still in negotiations", talkSPORT quotes the midfielder as saying. "The Premier League can pay contracts and wages that no other, apart from maybe three or four clubs overseas, can pay".

'We go there (Liverpool) to win the game. There is nothing really new for the moment.

All three players can be approached by foreign clubs as they are within six months of the end of their contracts, but Wenger is unconcerned by interest from overseas.
