The Barcelona star is currently enjoying a good run of form at the World Cup after helping his side overcome both Australia and current world champions Spain in Group B.

He displayed a strong presence in helping knock the Spanish out of the tournament on Wednesday night, and thus helped his side qualify for the last 16 before setting up a meeting with the Netherlands to determine who will top the group.

The 25-year-old recently stated that he would be keen on a move to the Premier League this summer, and he could find the offers flooding in should his form at the World Cup continue to impress so widely.

Sanchez scored 19 goals in 44 appearances for Barcelona last season and netted both goals in Chile’s 2-0 friendly victory over England back in November, while he also found the back of the net in Friday’s 3-1 win over Australia.

And it is those performances that have now caught Arsene Wenger’s attention despite being linked with a host of attacking players already this summer.
