The representatives of Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez are travelling to London this week to finalise terms on a deal to bring the 25-year-old to Arsenal, the Daily Mail reports.
The Barcelona man will be offered a £140,000 per week wage, which will see him become the club’s joint highest earner alongside Mesut Ozil – who was last summer’s marquee signing.
The Gunners are happy to meet Barcelona’s £30m valuation for the forward, who starred at the World Cup for Chile this summer.
Last term in Spain, Sanchez scored over 20 goals in all competitions, despite starting wide on the right – and Arsenal fans will be hoping he can provide the side with the pace and dribbling ability it occasionally lacked in the final third last term.
Liverpool and Juventus were both heavily interested in Sanchez, but it now appears that Arsene Wenger’s side have won the race for the South American.
