Juventus are reportedly preparing a move for Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez as they look to secure a replacement for Alvaro Morata.
The Bianconeri were forced to bid farewell to the Spanish international this week after Real Madrid exercised their buy-back clause in his contract.
In turn, Massimiliano Allegri will need to fill the gap left behind, and according to The Express, that search has taken them back to north London and Sanchez.
Sanchez joined the Gunners in 2014 and quickly established himself as a crucial part of Arsene Wenger’s side as well as a popular figure with the club’s supporters.
As a result, any move away from the Emirates would be met with disappointment and anger, although there were suggestions during last season that all was not well within the camp.
Nevertheless, the 27-year-old won’t be considering his club future for the time being as he looks to help guide Chile to Copa America success when they face Argentina in the final on Sunday.
However, that will merely delay a decision over his future, as although Arsenal will be amongst the top clubs fighting for the Premier League title next season, should Sanchez be desperate to win trophies as of next season, a move to Turin would make real sense.
Armed with the money from the sale of Morata, Juve should have no problems in meeting Arsenal’s demands, as they look to continue to strengthen after signing Miralem Pjanic earlier this month.
Nevertheless, Wenger will be desperate to avoid losing the forward, as he looks to strengthen rather than see his squad weakened as they look to improve on their second-placed finish in the league last year.
