With Juventus looking to strengthen their attacking options this summer after the departure of Alvaro Morata, they have been linked to Edinson Cavani, Michy Batshuayi, Gabriel Jesus, Romelu Lukaku and the most recommended, Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez.
Gazzetta dello Sport says Juventus could hope to supplant Morata with long term transfer target Sanchez. Gazzetta reckon Sanchez is ‘sick of being in London’, – it was generally realized that the 27 year old had become restless towards the end of last season, which Arsenal said that they had since consoled their star that he could meet his personal goals and objectives at the Emirates.
That said, if the Gunners do not sign players of interest to the Chilean, it may facilitate the players urge to leave the Club. The reports also claims that will be a perfect match for Juventus and would presumably welcome a move back to Italy where he spent five years with Udinese.
Furthermore, Juventus can’t bear the cost to get the player. Arsenal purchased Sanchez for €42.5m from Barcelona, and he is believed to be earning about £160,000 every week at the club – a figure which the Bianconeri are unrealistic to have the capacity to pay.
Arsenal would absolutely request a transfer fee higher than that, which is if they are willing to sell the Chilean. The 27-year-old has a few years left on his current contract, and Arsenal would want to persuade him to sign another extension soon and put this speculations to bed.
