Kevin de Bruyne believes Alexis Sanchez would be a welcome addition to the Manchester City squad.

The Premier League leaders have been heavily linked with a January move for the Arsenal forward.

There were suggestions in December that City, who have long been interested in Sanchez, would prefer to wait until the Chile international comes out of contract in the summer.

But an injury to Gabriel Jesus has sparked rumours a deal could be done sooner.

City have not commented on whether this might happen, but midfielder De Bruyne at least appears confident Sanchez will become a City player.

De Bruyne said: "(He is) a very good player. Obviously we will see what happens in this transfer period.

"If a good player comes, that is better; if he doesn't, we do it with the team we have. We are on a good period already - the whole season.

"When he comes he will add something to the team."
