Arsenal striker ALEXIS SANCHEZ is willing to take a pay cut in order to move to Manchester City, according to the Independent.

The Daily Mirror reports that Chelsea have not finished their summer spending spree yet and are poised to see Antonio Conte a further £150million to spend with the Italian keen on Southampton defender VIRGIL VAN DIJK. The Blues boss also wants Juventus full-back ALEX SANDRO and is keeping tabs on Inter Milan winger ANTONIO CANDREVA.
The Daily Mail reports that Roma have tabled a bid of £30million plus add-ons for Leicester attacker RIYAD MAHREZ. However, the Foxes are holding out for £50m for the Algeria international with Arsenal and Liverpool also keen on the 26-year-old frontman.
The Mail also reports that Swansea are holding out for £50m for playmaker GYLFI SIGURDSSON as Everton boss Ronald Koeman continues his pursuit of the Iceland midfielder.

And finally, Turkish outfit Antalyaspor are keen on Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere, according to the Daily Mirror. The Gunners turned down a bid of £7.5m from Sampdoria for Wilshere, who spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, but they are open to letting Wilshere leave the club for the right fee.
