The January transfer window is almost here and the rumors are starting to swirl. According to multiple outlets in the UK, including Sky Sports and the Guardian, Manchester City are said to be interested in signing Alexis Sanchez and Virgil Van Dijk. Just when you thought the Premier League leaders may have started to relax a little after 16-straight wins and an 11-point lead atop the table… It is believed Pep Guardiola has told the City hierarchy that those two players are at the top of his transfer wish list, along with a new central midfielder as Yaya Toure is expected to leave on a free transfer in the summer. The deal for Sanchez said to be relaxed with the Premier League leaders willing to wait until July 1 to sign him on a free transfer if he doesn’t sign a new deal at Arsenal. Sanchez, 29, came close to joining City in the summer but Arsenal turned down a Deadline Day deal for the Chilean forward.
