Italian Serie A club Juventus are interested to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal. They want Sanchez to replace the recently departed Alvaro Morata, who joined Real Madrid. The Bianconeri have made contact with the Chilean’s agent and will continue discussions with a hope of signing the forward.
If reports are to be believed, Sanchez and his agent Fernando Felicevich are interested to conjure a move to Turin. However, the major block to any transfer deal happening is Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger. The Frenchman will not want to part with his prized asset and wouldn’t want to anger the already frustrated Gunners fans, as reported by Tuttosport, via Calciomercato.
Another interesting source, who has fuelled the transfer speculation of Sanchez to Juventus is the Proto Group. The group manages properties of some of the biggest names in world football.
“There is South American interest in houses in Turin. We cannot name the player but it will be a nice surprise for Juventus fans. We have been asked to find a buyer for the property that Morata lived in. However, we can say no more at this time.” Proto Group said.
Sanchez is currently on a high after guiding his team to consecutive Copa America titles against Argentina. The Chilean however did not enjoy the best of spells with the Gunners last season. But, despite his poor form, he did manage to score 13 goals in 30 appearances in the Premier League. He also registered four assists, as reported by Squawka.com.
Sanchez has had experience of playing in the Serie A before for Udinese, from where he joined La Liga giants Barcelona. Jueventus wants to utilize Sanchez’s former experience of playing in the league by partnering him upfront with the likes of Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala.
However, unless the striker pursues the transfer himself in search of winning more league titles, there is not a huge hope for the Turin club to capture the player.
