Chelsea will pursue Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez as its number one summer transfer target, according to a Guardian report.
According to The Guardian, Conte, who is ready himself to sign a new contract with Chelsea after less than a year in charge, has submitted a list of transfer targets to Chelsea’s recruitment team, including director Marina Granovskaia and Sanchez.
The Chilean drew equal to Marcelo Salas, his country’s all-time leading goalscorer, on Tuesday evening, with a free kick in a 3-1 victory over Venezuela in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
Arsenal could struggle to hold onto Sanchez but could also benefit from a fight for his services between many of Europe’s grandest clubs. Inter Milan, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are all reportedly interested, in addition to Chelsea.
