Juventus are planning a cash plus player deal to take Alexis Sanchez to Turin, according to reports.
Juventus were interested in signing Sanchez in the just concluded summer transfer window but Arsenal dismissed the Italian club’s approach.Reports in Italy claims Juventus are still interested in the Chile international and are plotting a move for the forward.
Sanchez has less than two years left in his current contract at Arsenal and the club have been trying to tie him down to a new deal. The player wants a huge pay rise and the inclusion of a release clause in the new contract.
The club have indicated it’s willingness to offer the striker a new deal worth around £200,000 a week but Juventus are prepared to spoil things for the Gunners.
According to Calcio Mercato Web via the Daily Star, Juventus are prepared to do what ever it takes to sign Sanchez.
The Italian giants are prepared to offer Mario Mandzukic plus cash to sign the Chile international.
Arsenal were linked with Mandzukic in the summer and it is believed Wenger would like the idea of signing the croatia striker.
Juventus are now hoping a player plus cash deal involving the striker would tempt Wenger into letting Sanchez go.
Juventus are prepared to match the wages Arsenal are willing to offer Sanchez and this could leave the player in a difficult situation.
It is believed Sanchez is open to a move away from the Emirates and that could be the reason he demanded a release clause to be inserted in his contract and Juventus approach could further worsen things for Arsenal.
