Alexis Sanchez is reportedly unhappy at Arsenal at the moment, and Juventus are looking to capitalise on that and sign him this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
The Chilean was phenomenal during his debut campaign at Arsenal, but has suffered somewhat from second season syndrome. He’s looked a little tired and jaded at times, with injuries also playing their part.
Reports suggest he’s not happy with the lack of ambition shown at Arsenal, although the player himself has denied he’s looking toward the exit (via Goal).
Juventus marched to yet another Serie A championship this season, with their form in the league nothing short of fantastic. After a slow start to the season they powered through their opposition, and in the end they had very little competition.
Despite storming to the title though, the Italian club are apparently looking to revitalise themselves this summer. Bids are planned for Alexis and Edinson Cavani (via the Daily Mail), with Massmiliano Allegri hoping to push a little harder for the Champions League next season.

As previously stated, Alexis Sanchez has said nothing to suggest that he’s actually contemplating an Arsenal exit. And unless the 27-year-old is looking to force his way out then we shouldn’t even be thinking about the possibility of selling him.
We’re crying out for a couple of big name signings this summer, and selling our best players will only increase the need for acquisitions. Despite a disappointing season we’re still arguably just a signing or two away from a title winning side, but that all changes if we let players like Alexis Sanchez leave.

We don’t need the money anymore so it should definitely be an instant no, and if Alexis is sold this summer there would unquestionably by riots among fans.
