Recently-crowned Serie A champions Juventus are intent on bolstering their attacking options and the Bianconeri are keen on Alexis Sanchez, according to Italian daily Corriere dello Sport.
The Chilean has found playing time hard to come by at Barcelona this season, with the likes of Pedro Rodriguez and Cristian Tello, as well as striker David Villa, ahead of him in the pecking order. In his 26 league appearances for the Catalan giants this season, Sanchez has scored six goals and provided nine assists.
And the Tocopilla-born Chile international may just be the player Antonio Conte is looking for, with Juventus eyeing a swoop for the winger.
But the Turin big-shots may face competition from London giants Arsenal, who themselves have been linked with bringing Sanchez over to the Emirates Stadium.
Sanchez’s contract with Barcelona ties him down at the Camp Nou until the end of the 2015/16 season.
The Chile international has earned 55 caps for his country, scoring 14 goals along the way.
