Alexis Sanchez to Man City: Pep Guardiola to sell these two outcasts for Arsenal star

MANCHESTER CITY are ready to off-load Kelechi Iheanacho and Nolito to make way for top summer target Alexis Sanchez.

West Ham have joined Everton in showing interest in £20m-rated Nigerian youngster Iheanacho, who has fallen down the pecking order since the arrival of Gabriel Jesus in January.

And Real Betis want to take £10million-rated Nolito back to Spain after the former Barcelona, Benfica and Celta Vigo star expressed his frustration at his lack of game time at City. Like Iheanacho, Nolito has hardly figured in the second half of the season.

City's interest in unsettled Arsenal star Sanchez is a long-standing one with Pep Guardiola making no secret he is a huge admirer of the Chile international who he signed for Barcelona from Udinese in 2011, beating off competition from then City boss Roberto Mancini.

Bringing in a combined £30m for Iheanacho and Nolito would help balance a possible £50m outlay for Sanchez.

The Hammers are looking to bolster their forward line before the start of next season, with Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho having once again endured injury-hit campaigns, while Everton see Iheanacho, 20, as a replacement if Romelu Lukaku leaves.

Iheanacho, who joined City's Academy in 2014, has scored 21 goals in 63 appearances, but only 20 of those have been starts.
