Alexis Sanchez is reportedly closing in on a dream move to Manchester City.
Marca claims the Arsenal contract rebel has agreed to play under Pep Guardiola for a second time when his deal expires this summer.
It’s said that a number of top teams have made approaches for Sanchez.
But they’ve all decided to back off as the Chilean is believed to have his heart set on the Etihad.
However, the report adds that a January move is now on the cards following an injury to Gabriel Jesus.
The striker is out for up to two months after suffering knee ligament damage last weekend.
And Sanchez is being lined up as the perfect replacement as teams get stuck into the second half of the Premier League season.

It’s also been claimed that the 29-year-old played a huge role in Carlo Ancelotti’s downfall at Bayern Munich.
The tactician apparently made Sanchez his top target last summer and believed he had fought off competition from Paris Saint-Germain for the attacker’s signature.
However, Bayern failed to secure a deal, leading to Ancelotti’s relationship with his board going down the drain.
