Stamford Bridge side linked with move for Nou Camp forward.
Chelsea are one of a trio of Premier League sides said to be on alert as Barcelona look to sell attacker Alexis Sanchez according to talkSPORT.
fanatix tickets – Manchester City vs Chelsea tickets are on sale from £48 for the match on February 24th at the Etihad Stadium.
The 24 year old Chilean is strongly linked with interest from Juventus but the Blues will look to beat the Turin side to the signing of the former Udinese man, who has failed to make an impact at the Nou Camp.
Alexis has amazingly failed to net in 14 La Liga games this season but has still found himself ahead of far more prolific forward David Villa in Tito Vilanova’s first team set-up.
Chelsea may well feel the need to beef up their attacking options, especially given Fernando Torres’s distinctly average form and the departure of Daniel Sturridge to Liverpool.
Barcelona spent £22m on Sanchez just over 18 months ago, a fee that seemed reasonable given his excellent Serie A form, but it’s fair to say that the adaptable attacker, who can play in both wide and central attacking roles, has been a disappointment since his move to join the Catalan giants.
Sanchez managed a more respectable, but not spectacular, total of 15 goals in 41 appearances last term and is also being pursued by Man City and Man United.
