Juventus make €30m Alexis Sanchez offer

March 4, 2017 - 9:38 am

Juventus are pressing ahead with their interest for Arsenal winger Alexis Sanchez by making €30m offer.

The Bianconeri have followed the versatile forward since his time at Udinese and are hoping to capitalise on the player’s uncertain future at Arsenal.

The Chilean winger has a deal with the Gunners until June 2018 however a renewal is looking unlikely at present.

Corriere dello Sport report that Juventus have already contacted Arsenal and made an offer believed to be in the region of €30m in an effort to beat off interest from teams like Paris St. Germain.

Sanchez has scored 20 goals and provided 16 assists in 34 appearances for Arsenal this season and is generating interest across Europe.

    If anyone actually thinks we can buy Sanchez for 30 million they’re out of their mind.

      Well his contract ends next year. Arsenal won’t want him to walk out for little or free. Players always hold the aces when counting down to last year of contract, and clubs are always forced into giving in to new wage demands if a new contract is to be signed, or else allow to leave with a year left to guarantee some transfer income.

        I understand that but given the demand for a player of his quality I doubt he goes below 55-60 million. His contract does expire but that’s still 3 transfer windows away. Unless he specifically chooses Juventus there is no way we can outbid PSG or BM.

          We might not get him for 30m, but I think we probably can outbid them this time around.. Whether we want to outbid them is another matter.

          But I’ve just this morning read the clubs half yearly financial results for end of Dec 16 posted recently on the website. Holy crap we are positively loaded with cash right now! A huge 70+ million revenue increase on last year. Due to Pogba sale of course.

            That’s awesome, I wasn’t aware of that wow! I don’t think spending over 35 million for Sanchez would be worth it, he’s up there in age now. I much rather get Tolisso and possibly Batsuayhi, doubt he will stay at Chelsea with this little playing time. Given how much we spent on Higguain I’m surprised we have to much leftover capital. Now keep in mind we’re gong to make $16 million off zazas sale, about 15 million for Lemina and possibly another 15 for Mandzukics sale( I think we will end up selling him).

            Gonzo’s purchase was not dependent on Pogba’s sale Jas. They (management) had already stashed the money made from other savvy transfers and club income sufficient to purchase him (payment to Napoli in stages – payment from Utd for Pogs appears to be in one lump sum).

            I get that I’m just saying given the purchases we made I’m surprised the turnover is this high in our favor. But then again, the team is as efficient as it gets in other economic areas. It will be rather interesting to see what moves are made in the off season, it seems that we are a world class midfielder away from being in the top 3 elite of the world, id put us top 5 currently.

            Tolisso is class!!! i heard last week that Morota already agreed on his transfer fee with Lyon’ also Alexis would be worth every penny if it means outbidding PSG i wouldn’t mind if we pay up to 50M for Sanchez, he and Ozil are the sole reason why Arsenal isnt a mid-table PL team lol, weak after weak either or both pull off amazing feats. why do you want Batsuayhi? He is garbage! I never understood the noise surrounding him last transfer window; and after seeing his performances at Chelsea this season, i am still wondering what all the hype was about? I rather we get Sturridge or Lacazette even if it means overpaying.

            Sturidge would be an interesting acquisition. On his day a pretty awesome player. Unfortunately too many days he can’t be bothered to put in a shift. And then there are those never ending injury niggles….

            True. but I cant see him staying at Liverpool, he is 4th in the pecking order at Liverpool, and he is to much talent to let rot in WestHam Utd or some other mid table PL team, I bet he leaves Liverpool for a steal. and anyways i heard rumors a while back that Barca wanted Mandzukic…idk if that is still true or not, but i would gladly trade Mandzukic for Sturridge any day! injury and all XD. With us he will be 3rd pecking order behind Dybala and Higuain, however he still would play most every week like Mandzukic does, that’s better then the Once in a while games he gets now with Klopp.

    I figured Marotta would try to lowball this one. I hope we can get him.
