According to Metro, Arsenal have been given the green light to finalise their move for the Chilean international star after Catalan club Barcelona accepted a bid of £32 million.
And Arsenal will now hold further talks with Sanchez’s people over the next 48 hours ahead of sealing a deal for the highly rated 25-year-old.
The Gunners have reportedly agreed to a payment plan for the in-demand forward having pursued him for almost two months.
However, any deal could be delayed until Barcelona complete the signing of Luis Suarez from Liverpool.
It is thought that Barcelona wanted to include Sanchez in their deal for Suarez, but the former River Plate and Udinese star is apparently more keen on a switch to the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal fans. The signing of Sanchez is a great signal of intent from Arsene Wenger but who else do you need to make a run for the title? Let us know your thoughts below.
