The former Udinese man is said to be one of a number of players who could be sold by the Nou Camp side and may be tempted by a move to the Merseyside club, where he may be used to form part of a three pronged attack alongside Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge.
Sanchez had an excellent campaign this season, despite his side’s inability to secure any silverware, netting 19 goals in 27 La Liga starts.
Incoming boss Luis Enrique appears to see Sanchez as surplus to requirements and with Lionel Messi and Neymar certain to be regular starters the 25 year old South American may be best advised to seek a new challenge as an alternative to a likely bench warming role at the Catalan club.
