There is a danger that Arsenal’s failure to challenge for major trophies could cause them to lose Alexis Sanchez this summer as Juventus target the Chilean attacker.
The Daily Mail cites Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport as reporting that Sanchez is a target for Juve boss Massmiliano Allegri as he looks to evolve his forward line.
Sanchez joined Arsenal two years ago from Barcelona for £35m – fee reported by BBC Sport – but the Gunners have failed to challenge for the Premier League title in either of his seasons with them, and they have not made it beyond the last 16 of the Champions League.
Juventus are the type of serial winners who might be a more attractive proposition for the South American. They have just won their fifth successive Serie A title.
Arsenal would be very reluctant to let Sanchez go even though he has failed to hit the form of his debut season, managing 17 goals this term compared to 25 in 2014-15.
According to the Daily Mail, Corriere dello Sport claims that unsettled Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani is also on Juve’s radar, which Arsenal will hope is pointed at the French capital, rather than the Emirates Stadium, when the transfer window reopens.
