Sanchez remains on the Gunners’ wish list.
Arsenal are still keeping tabs on Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez and have been told it will cost them £24m if they want to sign the Chilean, reports Spanish publication AS.
The Gunners face stiff competition from Italian champions Juventus however, as the 25 year-old looks for a way out of the Nou Camp after three years of frustration.
Sanchez joined Barca from Udinese for £32m back in 2011, but since then has failed to truly establish himself as a first team regular.
In his first two years the South American started 32 and then 28 matches in all competitions for the Spanish champions and was left wondering if he had made the right choice in leaving Serie A.
Admittedly this campaign has been more fruitful for Sanchez, who under the management of Gerardo Martino has made 53 appearances in all competitions and scored 20 goals.
Yet the Argentine is expected to lose his job after the final La Liga game of the season on Sunday – regardless of if the Catalans win the league or not – and the Chile international’s future will be cast into doubt once more.
This has attracted the interest of the Gunners, who are keen to improve their attack after another fourth placed finish in the Premier League in 2013/14.
With the ability to play on either flank or as a central attacker, Sanchez’s versatility and technique based style appeals to Arsene Wenger’s tactics.
However, with Juve in the hunt the forward may well be tempted back to a country where he spent three happy years as a player.
