Arsenal attacker Alexis offered to Real Madrid as Zidane seeks Jan '9'

Real Madrid are ready to move for Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez in January.

Real coach Zinedine Zidane, before last night's victory over APOEL, admitted they "missed a No9" after the departures of Alvaro Morata (Chelsea) and Mariano Diaz (Lyon).

Real are now scouring the market for an available striker signing and Don Balon says Alexis has been offered.

The Chile international saw a move to Manchester City fall through last month, but remains determined to leave Arsenal. A return to Spain would be welcomed by the former Barcelona striker.

Alexis wants Arsenal to listen to offers for him in January and Real are now seriously studying the prospect of adding him to coach Zinedine Zidane's squad in the New Year.
