Alexis Sanchez to Arsenal: Barcelona star would prefer Arsenal or Juventus over Liverpool
Barcelona man is wanted by several European clubs
Sunday 06 July 2014
Liverpool might be interested in signing Barcelona's Alexis Sanchez but the Chilean forward would prefer a move to either Juventus or Arsenal, according to reports.
Brendan Rodgers is understood to be keen to add Sanchez to any potential deal with the Catalan club for Luis Suarez, but his plans may be foiled by the forward's reluctance to move to Anfield.
Barcelona are also thought to be keen on a Liverpool move for Sanchez, as it would help drive the price of Suarez down, however they are still reliant on the player's desire to move to the club.
According to reports on Catalan television, Barcelona and Liverpool have already agreed a £63m deal for Suarez, handing the controversial Uruguayan a five-year deal that would see him become the club's fourth highest paid player.
However conflicting reports indicate that Liverpool are still trying to negotiate, with the club exploring the possibility of bringing Sanchez in.
Despite interest from Liverpool, the former River Plate man is thought to prefer a move to either Juventus or Arsenal, the club who remain favourites for his signature.
