Arsenal are expected to make a move for Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez this summer but they’ll face stiff competition from Italian duo Juventus and Inter Milan for his signature, according to talkSPORT.

The Chilean international enjoyed an excellent first season in Spain following his big-money move from Udinese in 2011, scoring 12 goals in 25 league appearances.

However, he’s struggled to maintain that form this season, scoring just 2 league goals so far, and he’s dropped down the pecking order in recent months leading to question marks over his future at the Nou Camp.

talkSPORT claim that Arsenal could try and lure the 24-year-old to the Premier League this summer as Arsene Wenger tries to build a squad capable of challenging for trophies once again, but the north Londoners are expected to face competition from Italian pair Juventus and Inter Milan, who’re both keen on taking Sanchez back to Serie A.

Sanchez is the level of player we certainly need to be aiming for this summer and I think he’d be an excellent signing if we managed to pull it off. However, Champions League football is likely to be important for the player so we’d have to ensure we finish in the top four if we’re to have a chance of landing the talented South American this summer.

    Sanchez is an excellent player….in Barcelona he had an awesome first season due to the fact that he was starting every game….on his second season he was dropped after just one game and then he stayed on the bench for the rest of the season….not really the best treatment for a player who is world class…if we sign this Sanchez we will finally move on from the problems we have been having on the wings, he is a winger and striker, better on the wing, he is fast,dribbles past players,has a great assist record and scores goals…a true world class footballer, 15 to 20 million would be enough and Arsenal does have that kind of money so there is no excuses
