Juventus are confident they can sign Alexis Sanchez this summer, according to a report in Tribal Football.
The Italian giants are big admirers of the Chilean and have tried to sign him on several occasions but have been unsuccessful.
Juve’s interest in Sanchez dates back to when he was at Udinese but they could not beat Barcelona to his signature in 2011. Arsenal also edged them out in the race to sign the striker in 2014 when he completed a £38m move from the Nou Camp.
Sanchez has gone on to become an influential figure at the Emirates and Juve’s interest have continued to grow after seeing his exploits at Arsenal. They attempted to sign him last summer but were turned down by Arsenal who made it clear that their star man wasn’t for sale at any price.
However, things have changed since then, reports are claiming Sanchez is ready to leave the Emirates this summer and Juve are being mentioned as one club who could snap him up.
According to TMW radio, Juventus would move for Sanchez should they sell one of their strikers this summer.
The Italian giants believe they have the funds and ambition to lure the striker away from the Emirates.
Our ambition to challenge for major titles is being doubted following last wednesday’s 5-1 defeat in the hands of Bayern Munich but Juventus are in strong position to qualify for the next round of the Champions League.
Despite Juve’s confidence, they will find it difficult to sign the Chilean because Arsenal’s priority remains to tie him down to a new contract and we will fight to do that. Also a host of European clubs with funds and ambition will also join the race for his signature.
