David Moyes is apparently keen to bring in effective attacking options, especially those who can play in wide positions, in view of the poor form shown by Nani, Ashley Young and Luis Antonio Valencia.
Moyes has failed with previous attempts to conduct Nou Camp raids, missing out on Thiago Alcantara, who opted to join Bayern Munich, and Cesc Fabregas who chose to remain at the Catalan club.
The Scot will send representatives to monitor the Chilean ahead of a bid for the 24 year old in the January transfer window though Inter Milan and PSG will offer competition in the pursuit of the former Udinese man.
It’s fair to say that Alexis Sanchez has taken time to win over the Barcelona faithful and the summer signing of Neymar may well have forced the forward to up his game and thus far this term the adaptable attacker has been in mesmerizing form.
Sanchez has scored seven goals in seven La Liga starts this term and scored twice in Chile’s friendly win over England earlier this week.
