Alexis Sanchez would welcome a move to Premier League champions Chelsea with open arms, according to the Daily Mail.
Sanchez is inarguably one of the best players in the Premier League, and belongs at one of the best clubs. Unfortunately for him, he’s being held at Arsenal, seemingly against his will.
As per the Daily Mail, the Chilean would happily move from North London to West and join Chelsea, one there is one, major problem.
The tabloid note that Arsenal have made it abundantly clear that Sanchez will not be sold to a direct rival. Unfortunately, that includes us.
Sanchez is the sort of signing we should be targeting. A statement, a player that would help re-establish ourselves as a European superstar, but unfortunately, he plays for the wrong club.
The days of Arsenal selling to their competitive rivals appear to be over, and Antonio Conte will subsequently need to look elsewhere in his pursuit of attacking reinforcements.
