Alexis Sanchez is reportedly devastated that his move to Manchester City fell through on deadline day, and is willing to go on strike in order to punish Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger had been adamant throughout the summer that Sanchez, who had displayed little intention to extend his contract beyond 2018, would remain and not follow Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain out of the door in the final 12 months of his deal.

However, Sanchez's performance in Arsenal's 4-0 loss to Liverpool on his first Premier League appearance of the new season won't have filled Gunners fans with confidence.

One thing is for certain, Sanchez won't start the 2018/19 season as an Arsenal player.

Liverpool have pursued Lemar too and bid £74m for him but Arsenal now lead the hunt with just hours left in the transfer window.

It did seem mad that Sanchez waited till the last week of the window to put in his transfer request whilst City waited until the last day for a player that Guardiola was clearly desperate to sign.

Thomas Lemar could still end up at Arsenal - after the Premier League side offered Monaco up to 92-million-pounds for the midfielder.

EPS for Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co (HPE) Expected At $0.26
The Company's Americas Recycling segment processes scrap metals for use as a raw material by manufacturers of new metal products. This company shares are 110.58% off its target price of $6.17 and the current market capitalization stands at $340.55M.

Lemar couldn't be persuaded to change his mind and his move to Arsenal was off.

Particularly damaging would be to sell to a title rival and while Manchester City is his most likely destination, it is not hard to imagine Chelsea and Manchester United joining the bidding should Arsenal indicate a willingness to negotiate.

According to reports, the deal will only had materialised, if Arsenal got a replacement for Sanchez, the fee was £55m, plus £5m add-ons, but it depended on Arsenal replacing him.

And City staff witnessed first-hand the anger of agent Felicevich on Thursday evening when he colourfully told both clubs that he would "not forget" Arsenal's role in the day's events.

However, the Chile worldwide will be remaining with Arsenal after the London club failed to sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco on Deadline Day.

"I know my choice might come as a surprise to many and the decision to leave was tough after being a part of the club for so many years", Oxlade-Chamberlain said in a Twitter post.
