Alexis Sanchez is currently undergoing a medical at Manchester United as his potential swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan edges closer, according to Sky Sports.

Sanchez flew to Manchester on Sunday morning to undergo his medical at Carrington, while Mkhitaryan is currently in London with his agent Mino Raiola as he prepares for his own medical at Arsenal.

Sky sources understand it will be a straight swap deal between United and Arsenal, although the final paperwork on the transfer is yet to be signed off by all parties involved.

Both Sanchez and Mkhitaryan were absent on Saturday as Arsenal and Manchester United returned to Premier League action.

Sanchez missed his side’s 4-1 win over Crystal Palace, while Mkhitaryan was left out of the squad that beat Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor.

Arsenal and United are expected to make a simultaneous announcement on Monday confirming the swap deal has been completed, once both players have passed their respective medicals.
