The regulars in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up at our landlord to tell them all about the latest claim in the Daily Star who seem to think Arsenal have joined the race for Alexis Sanchez.
The Barcelona forward is one of the hottest properties around this summer and has not only Juventus but also Liverpool, Manchester United and now Arsenal chasing his signature.
Sanchez has starred for Chile this summer at the World Cup and we think that he would be a brilliant buy for any club who took the chance on him.
Sanchez’s Barcelona career has not exactly propelled him to the heights he wanted following his switch from Udinese in 2011.
Whilst we know that Sanchez did not exactly get the regular chances he may have deserved at Barcelona, new manager Luis Enrique is keen to cash in on the star.
Sanchez has seen his reputation skyrocket after a brilliant World Cup group stage so far and will now command around £18 million in terms of a transfer value.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has £100 million to spend and we think that he needs to get a move on if he actually wants anyone to sign for the club this summer!
Arsenal fans. Would you like Wenger to make a swoop for Sanchez this summer or are there more pressing concerns? Let us know your thoughts below.
