Cape Town - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that the club have not been contacted with regards to a transfer move for star forward Alexis Sanchez.

According to reports surfacing on Monday night, Premier League leaders Manchester City and the London club are close to agreeing a deal.

A £30m bid has been tabled with Sanchez having agreed to personal terms which will see the player leave the club for City in the current transfer window.

However, Wenger has stated that there has been no contact with clubs regarding a move for the player this month.

"I expect nothing, I am focused on tomorrow's game. When solicitations happen you respond, at the moment it's very quiet," he told a press conference, as quoted by Sky Sports.

Sanchez's current deal at Arsenal will expire at the end of the season when he will be able to sign for a new club as a free agent.

The 29-year-old, who was signed from Barcelona in 2014, has made 19 Premier League appearances this campaign, scoring seven goals and providing three assists.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are set to face cross-town rivals Chelsea in the first-leg of the League Cup semi-final on Wednesday evening.

Kick-off is at 22:00 (SA time).
