The Gunners are keen on signing Sanchez.

Check in to Brazil vs Chile

Having impressed with Chile at the 2014 World Cup, Arsenal are keen on signing Alexis Sanchez from FC Barcelona and have made an inquiry to the Spaniards for the attacker, reports the Telegraph.

Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has been using his trip to Brazil as a commentator for French television to scout potential talent and views Sanchez as the ideal purchase.

Juventus and Liverpool are also interested in the South American, who it’s thought would cost somewhere in the region £25m if Barca were convinced to sell.

Sanchez impressed in Catalonia during the 2013/14 season, scoring 19 La Liga goals and providing 10 assists and has continued that form into the World Cup.

The Chilean has helped his nation progress to the last-16 of the tournament ahead of reigning champions Spain, also scoring in the 3-1 opening match win over Australia.

Wenger is keen to add attacking support this summer having admitted the North Londoners relied too much upon striker Olivier Giroud last term.

Sanchez would certainly bring some excitement to the Emirates Stadium and having played a quick passing style both internationally and in Catalonia, the 25-year-old should adapt well to the Gunners’ ideologies.

Wenger also has his eye on AC Milan and Italy forward Mario Balotelli, whilst a new right-back, goalkeeper and holding midfielder is expected to arrive at the club in this close season.
