Juventus will do everything possible to sign Alexis Sanchez this summer, according to reports.
The Italian giants are one of the clubs interested in the Gunners man.
According to The Express, Sanchez is set to leave Arsenal this summer after growing frustrated with life at the Emirates.
A host of top clubs including PSG and Chelsea have been linked with his services but Juventus are keen to sign the striker under the noses of its rivals.
Italian publication Tuttosport claims Juventus will do everything possible to sign Sanchez. They are prepared to let two of their players leave permanently in order to get funds to pursue the Sanchez deal.
The two player’s that would be allowed to leave Turin is Kingsley Coman and Simeone Zaza. Both players are out on loan at Bayern Munich and Valencia respectively and are expected to make their move permanent at the end of the season.
Juventus are expected to recoup up to £35m from the sale of the duo which will be channelled into signing Sanchez.
The report claims that figure will be enough to sign the Chilean.
The Chile international is currently the Premier League’s joint top scorer with 17 goals to his name already and will definitely be one of the most sought after players this summer if he decides to leave.
However Arsenal remains confident that he will sign a new deal, Wenger revealed last month that Sanchez and Ozil had told him they intend to stay at the Emirates.
‘(Ozil and Sanchez) tell me they want to stay,’ Wenger told BeIN Sports.
‘Alexis is a committed player and I am certain (we will reach an agreement).’
I am hoping that’s the case as both players will be difficult to replace if they leave.
