Juventus are confident of signing Alexis Sanchez this summer, according to reports.
The Italian giants are huge admirers of Sanchez who they have tried to sign several times. The Chilean international caught Juventus’ attention when he was at Udinese but there was no way they were going to compete with Barcelona for his signature.
When it was obvious that he would be leaving the Camp Nou in 2014, Juve also tried to sign him but again couldn’t compete with Arsenal’s financial might.
With the Chilean’s future at the Emirates now in doubt, Juve are looking to place themselves in pole position to sign the striker. Yesterday, Italian newspaper Corriere Dello Sport claimed Allegri’s men have made an initial bid worth £25.7m for the forward.
However, a seperate report in The Independent via Sports Mole claim Juventus are yet to make a concrete bid for the Chilean.
Instead the report claims it is down to Sanchez and his representatives to force a move away from the Emirates.
Arsenal are reluctant to lose its star player and will continue to convince him to sign a new deal but should player decide to leave, we would be forced into selling him so we won’t lose him for nothing next year.
Juventus believe Sanchez wants to leave Arsenal and they are very confident of signing the striker ahead of next season.
Sanchez has been Arsenal’s best player this season, chipping in 17 league goals so far. His exit will be a big a blow to us and i’m afraid we may find it difficult to replace him if he leaves.
