Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been left mulling over a potential swap deal, which would see a fan-favourite leave the club.
Italian outlet Tuttosport state Serie A champions Juventus are desperate to bring Alexis Sanchez back to Italian football to form a devastating attacking trident alongside Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala.
The Chilean, who made his name at Udinese before moving to Barcelona, is seen as the missing piece of Juventus’ puzzle as they target a forward line that can compete with the power that both Barcelona and Real Madrid have with their respective strike forces.
While the Gunners are desperate not to lose the forward and are thought to be negotiating an extension to his contract, the 28-year-old is into the final 18 months of his deal and the Serie A champions are reportedly prepared to sweeten the deal by offering Miralem Pjanic in return.
The Bosnian pass master, 26, only moved to Turin from Roma last summer and has impressed ever since, scoring five goals in 13 Serie A appearances. In fact, he’s been linked with a move to the Emirates before.
Arsenal are believed to be long-term admirers of the Bosnian international but they already boast a wealth of excellent midfielders, with our landlord believing they will turn down this offer.
