Juventus join chase for Arsenal star

Old Lady revive Alexis interest

Italian giants Juventus have reportedly joined the pursuit to sign Arsenal contract rebel Alexis Sanchez in the summer.

The Chile international, who has less than 18 months left on his present contract, has stalled on talks over an extension with the Gunners reluctant to come close to his £250,000 weekly wage demands.

Paris Saint-Germain have been constantly linked with a move for Alexis over the past month, but according to The Mirror, the Old Lady could offer strong competition for the former Barcelona ace.

Juventus had failed with a £25m approach for Alexis prior to the start of the season, and they will have to at least double the offer, if they are to stand any chance of securing the winger's signature.

Serie A rivals Inter Milan are also interested in the South American forward, but their move would be dependent on whether they attain Champions League football for next season.
