Juventus to offload two to sign Sanchez?

Juventus prepare bid for Sanchez

Serie A holders Juventus will reportedly part ways with Simone Zaza and Kingsley Coman this summer in order to fund a move for Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.

The 28-year-old is said to demand a significant increase in his £130,000 weekly wages, and this has stalled talks over an extension despite the Chilean approaching the final year of his contract.

Sanchez has been associated with the likes of Sevilla and Atletico Madrid over the past couple of days, but according to Calciomercato, the Old Lady could win the race with a £35m sum likely to be sufficient.

Zaza is expected to join Valencia on a permanent £13.7m deal in the summer, and it is left for Juve to offload Coman - preferably to Bayern Munich in order push through a move for Sanchez.

With 20 goals to his name this campaign, Sanchez is the leading goal scorer for Arsenal by a fair margin while he has also contributed 13 assists to date.
