Barca want to use winger in potential Suarez deal.Arsenal may face a battle on their hands in their efforts to sign Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona this summer, according to Mundo Deportivo.
It has been claimed that the north London side have made a formal approach for the Chile international, who has been in fine form for club and country this year, making a decisive impact at this summer’s World Cup to attract interest from some big names.
However, Barcelona are still keen to use Sanchez as part of a swap deal to sign Luis Suarez from Liverpool, leading to suggestions that Arsenal may have to significantly up their offer if they want to bring the talented 25-year-old to the Emirates Stadium.
Liverpool are also keen on signing Sanchez, and the prospect of bringing him to Anfield may be the only factor that would persuade them to part ways with star player Suarez this summer.
The Uruguayan forward remains a top target for the Catalan giants despite a recent four-month ban imposed on him by Fifa for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini in a recent World Cup game.
