Juventus Linked With Move For Arsenal Striker Alexis Sanchez

alexis-sanchezJuventus are being strongly linked with a move for Arsenal’s disgruntled striker Alexis Sanchez.

According to reports out of England Sanchez is growing frustrated with life in north London and his prima donna behavior has upset Arsenal manager Wenger and a number of the Chile international’s team-mates.

Sanchez reportedly stormed straight out of the Emirates after being substituted against Norwich City recently and then was also conspicuous by his absence from the group of players who went over to acknowledge the Arsenal away supporters at Manchester City.

While Sanchez has two years left on his current Arsenal deal, Juve general manager Giuseppe Marotta has publicly admitted his admiration for Sanchez in what has been viewed as the first attempt of the Turin club to turn his head.

“It’s nice to read that so many players would like Juventus, As for Sanchez, he’s definitely a good player,” said Marotta.

“Reality tells us that this team is now where it has historically been considered, so it’s normal that most top players would find the thought of coming to us appealing.”

If Juventus follow up Marotta’s words with a serious bid, then Arsenal will face a dilemma over whether to keep Sanchez against his will or allow the fans’ favorite to leave.

No player has scored more league goals for Arsenal than Sanchez in 2016 (7) and only two players have garnered a higher WhoScored.com rating than the Arsenal star in the Premier League this season (7.72).
