Arsenal blow as Serie A giants turn to Chile forward – report

Alexis Sanchez is a target for Juventus, according to reports in Italy

Arsenal are facing a struggle to keep hold of Alexis Sanchez after Juventus stepped up their bid to sign the Chile forward, according to reports in Italy.

The Serie A champions could lose Spain international Alvaro Morata to Real Madrid this summer as Los Blancos look to activate a contract release clause in the South American’s contract.

The Italian side were thought to be eyeing up Marseille forward Michy Batshuayi, however, Chelsea have since emerged as the favourites to land the Belgium international.

According to Calciomercato.it, Juventus are ready to turn their attention to Arsenal superstar Sanchez as the Serie A holders look to bolster their attacking options.

The South American has established himself as a key part of Arsene Wenger’s Gunners side after a return of 29 goals in 65 Premier League appearances for the Gunners.
