Liverpool reportedly ready to beat Manchester duo to country’s all-time leading goalscorer

As per Daily Star, Liverpool are ready to enter the race for the signature of wantaway Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.

The 29-year-old Chilean international is wanted by both Manchester United and Manchester City, but the latter are said to have pulled out of the race due to their unwillingness to pay Arsenal’s £35million asking price.

The Reds, though, are keen to meet the fee considering they have cash to splash following Philippe Coutinho’s £142million move to Barcelona.

However, Alexis’ wages could be a stumbling block, with City offering £290,000-per-week, and United £350,000 as per The Sun.

Should Liverpool manage to win the battle for the signature of the former Barcelona man and Chile’s all-time leading goalscorer, they can be rest assured of having the best attack in the land.

Alexis brings a lot of quality to the table, and he would be the perfect replacement for Coutinho given that he can also play behind the striker apart from the left wing and upfront.

Adding a player of his status could be the final piece of the jigsaw needed to finally win the Premier League.
