According to the latest reports, Arsenal are ready for a bidding war with Liverpool and Manchester United to sign in-demand Barcelona winger Alexis Sanchez.
Sanchez is having a great World Cup so far, eliminating the defending champions Spain in the process. These performance will definetely increase his demand in the transfer market.
Even though, the Chilean had a great season in Barcelona colors, bagging 19 goals and 10 assists in La Liga, he is believed to be unhappy with life at Barcelona and also fed up with playing a second-fiddle role to Lionel Messi. The relationship between the two seems bit frosty and Messi has been criticized for not celebrating Sanchez’s goals on more than one occasion.
Premier league clubs Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United are monitoring the situation closely and will make their move once the World cup gets over. Arsenal with their reported £100m transfer budget are believed to be leading the race to sign the tricky winger.
