Cape Town - Chilean SWC star, Alexis Sanchez, is topping the transfer wishlists of several European clubs and it seems that the English Premiership duo Arsenal and Liverpool remain the front-runners to to land the services of the Barcelona forward.
The player has been linked with a move to Liverpool in a cash plus player deal as Barcelona look to seal a deal for Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez debacle.
The Anfield club is adamant in sticking to their asking price which is believed to be in the region of £70 million.
Barcelona is reportedly ready to offload the Chilean to Bredan Rodgers side for the fee of £50m as long as Suarez makes the move to the Nou Camp.
Media reports are suggesting that Sanchez is reluctant on a switch to the Reds, as the player is keen to join a different red side in England, Arsene Wenger's Arsenal.
The player’s agent, Fernando Felicevich, has dropped the biggest hint according to The Sports Bible by following a number of Arsenal’s Twitter accounts including players Oliver Giroud, Santi Carzola and Mesut Ozil.
Speculation in England is rife that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has finally left the Copacabana beach in an attempt to sign Sanchez.
As with all transfers, it's only once the player is seen at the ground holding the scarf above his head smiling like a chesire cat.
In the mean time, Arsenal fans will be hoping that this is the last time their boss is seen lying on the beach.
