Transfer news LIVE: Manchester United chase Alexis Sanchez latest, Arsenal to get Mkhitaryan, Liverpool updates

Sports Staff

The January transfer window is hotting up with Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool the key players.

Alexis Sanchez is set to become a Manchester United player within hours after finally agreeing a deal that will see him paid as much as £14m per year. The deal will see Henrikh Mkhitaryan head the other way after he too agreed personal terms with the Gunners. Arsene Wenger expects the deal to go through imminently but isn't stopping there with Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bordeaux's Malcom also on his shopping list.

Liverpool need a replacement for Philippe Coutinho with Monaco's Thomas Lemar top of Jurgen Klopp's wishlist while league leaders Manchester City, fresh from being snubbed by Sanchez, want a centre-half with West Brom's Jonny Evans their No.1 choice. Chelsea are on the hunt for strikers with West Ham's Andy Carroll, Roma's Edin Dzeko and, in the latest twist, Stoke's Peter Crouch targets.
