Frenchman expects deal to be concluded imminently.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed to talkSPORT that the Gunners are on the brink of completing a £28 million move for Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez.
The French boss, who is normally known to keep his cards close to his chest with regard to transfers, has revealed that the 25-year old Chilean would be his marquee signing of the summer.
Arsenal are set to conclude the deal after having agreed terms and a transfer fee, and have reportedly beaten competition from the likes of Liverpool and Juventus for the Barcelona forward.
Sanchez was expendable at Barcelona, who have all but worked out a deal for Liverpool star Luis Suarez, and the Gunners have swooped in at the right moment to land their man.
Known largely as one of the most complete forwards around, Sanchez can play all across the front line and is being tipped to be the man to lead Arsenal to the Premier League title next season.
