Juventus are poised to target Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez if Alvaro Morata leaves Turin, according to reports

Juventus will attempt to lure Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez to Italy if Alvaro Morata leaves Turin this summer, according to Gazzetto dello Sport.

The 23-year-old centre-forward is thought to be on his way out of the Serie A champions this summer with former employers Real Madrid keen on the Juve star.
