Arsenal to pip Manchester United in race for La Liga ace?

Alexis SanchezArsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are more than excited with Arsene Wenger’s reported transfer wishlist so far.

Mario Balotelli and Karim Benzema are two of the names widely touted but according to the Daily Express, there’s another World Cup attacker on the list.

Italian sources claim that Wenger has met up with the agents of Alexis Sanchez giving them the edge over Premier League rivals Manchester United in this particular transfer chase.

The Chilean international has had a fine World Cup campaign so far and his whereabouts next season have been widely speculated over since the La Liga season ended.

Wenger apparently sent scouts out to Brazil to keep an eye on Ivory Coast full back Serge Aurier, a number of goalkeepers and now it seems Sanchez.

Despite playing second fiddle to Lionel Messi last season, the former Udinese attacker managed to notch 19 goals and ten assists.

However it’s believed that the two don’t get on and it seems Luis Enrique has sided with the Argentine maestro, paving the way for Sanchez to leave the Camp Nou.
