The Sun have reported a ridiculous transfer rumour involving Alexis Sanchez

"Once you are in our kind of situation we have envisaged every kind of solution, yes. It's possible."

Those were the words of Arsene Wenger earlier this month when asked if Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil could be sold in January.

Both players' contracts are up next summer and with every passing week it's looking less likely they will pen new deals.

It's Sanchez that Arsenal fans fear losing the most following three prolific seasons at the club, in which he's scored 53 Premier League goals.

His best return came last year, scoring 24 times and finishing third behind Harry Kane (29) and Romelu Lukaku (25) in the race for the Golden Boot.

But now the world-class Chilean is set to leave for absolutely nothing when his four-year deal expires next summer.

Manchester City are favourites to land Sanchez but according to the Mirror, they won't be making a bid in January as expected.

Pep Guardiola was previously linked with a cut-price £20 million move for Sanchez but now he's decided he doesn't want to give Arsenal a penny.

City are still furious with Arsenal for the way they conducted themselves over the summer, when a £60 million fee was agreed but everything collapsed at the last minute.

Wenger maintains that Sanchez could still sign a lucrative extension to stay at the Emirates Stadium but it's clear to see he doesn't want to be at the club.

What the future holds is anyone's guess, but now The Sun claim another Premier League club has entered the race to sign Sanchez.

And put simply, it's absolute nonsense.

The Sun claim Everton, who are currently in the bottom three in the Premier League, are lining up a £30 million move for Sanchez in January. Wow.

Club owner Farhad Moshiri is a big fan of Sanchez apparently and is willing to splash the cash on the contract rebel.

Sanchez has previously stated he wants to play Champions League football, so even if this rumour was true, there's no chance of him moving to Merseyside.

Football fans have been reacting to the Sanchez-Everton rumours on social media and as you'd expect, they're all laughing at The Sun.
