Chelsea to move for Alexis Sanchez?

Football Transfer Centre

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is prepared to lodge a summer attempt to lure Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez to Stamford Bridge.

The Chilean footballer has just over a year left on his current deal, and it is suggested that the Gunners could cash in on his services in the summer.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has previously stressed that the club could keep hold of the attacker next season, and this could see him leave on a Bosman to a league rival.

According to The Independent, Conte is desperate to get his hands on Sanchez this summer, and he is willing to test the Gunners' resolve with a club-record bid.

Sanchez has recently insisted that his future depends on the Gunners' hierarchy, and there is a reasonable chance they could sell him in the latter stages of the transfer window.

The former Barca man has been in fine touch for Arsenal in the Premier League this term, having netted 23 goals and assisted a further 10 in 37 outings.

Despite this, the FA Cup finalists are on the verge of finishing outside the top-four for the first time in two decades.
