Poor Arsenal. Just when you thought their week/season/rudderless-recent-history was at it lowest ebb, Manchester City and their Big Bad Oil Billions arrive to make things even worse.

Coming off the back of a 4-0 demolition at the hands, feet and heads of Liverpool, it now looks like Alexis Sanchez, arguably the team's one superstar player, could be making a move north in a swap deal that would see Raheem Sterling join from Manchester City in a cash plus player deal.

First reported by The Mirror, City are aiming to reunite Sanchez with his old Barcelona boss, Pep Guardiola before this Thursday's transfer deadline, and are willing to include 22-year-old winger Sterling in the hopes of sweetening the deal.

Arsenal have so-far refused to allow Sanchez to leave the club, despite the Chile international only having a year left on his contract, but a bid £70 million or more could prove tempting for a player who is likely to leave for free next summer.

At least they still have the young-up-and-comer Theo Walcott to fill his boots if/when Sanchez leaves.

Every cloud and all that...
