Antonio Conte’s top Chelsea transfer target revealed by report
Chelsea will ramp up their efforts to try and sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal this summer, say reports
Alexis Sanchez has emerged as Chelsea’s top transfer target for the summer window, according to reports.
The Independent is reporting that Conte is set to make the Chile international his number one priority when the transfer window reopens as the Italian looks to bolster his squad ahead of his second season at Stamford Bridge.
The same story says it is “increasingly likely” that Chelsea will test Arsenal’s resolve with a summer transfer bid to try and lure the 28-year-old across London.
Sanchez’s situation at Arsenal has been a relentless source of speculation in recent weeks because of the fact that his current contract is set to expire at the end of next season.
However, the same article claims that Arsenal would be willing to let Sanchez’s contract run out rather than let him leave in the summer.
Sanchez has established himself as one of the Premier League’s top forwards since his arrival at Arsenal from Barcelona in 2014.
The attacker has scored 28 goals and made 16 assists in all competitions for Arsenal so far this season.
