Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez is looking for a move away from Arsenal after refusing to sign a new contract at the Emirates.

The former Barcelona forward is a key player for the Gunners. He scored 30 goals from 51 appearances last season and has another 3 to his goal tally this season already.

Last summer, there were some serious interests for the Chilean from various clubs across Europe, but Sanchez's move was blocked by Arsene Wenger who wanted to keep hold of the attacker.

Given Manchester City's form, it is likely that Arsenal will go another season without the league title, which means it's going to get harder for them to keep their key players.

Sanchez's contract expires next summer which means Arsenal could either lose him for free in July or sell him for a cut-price deal in January. Here are 5 clubs who should go after the Chilean.

#5 Chelsea

The defending Premier League champions would love a player of Alexis' calibre, for free

The reigning Premier League champions were one of the many clubs interested in Alexis Sanchez's signature last summer.

Alvaro Morata, Eden Hazard, and Pedro or Willian make up Chelsea's front attacking trio but Pedro's form has started to dip recently and Willian has struggled for game time under the Antonio Conte.

Hence, the Chelsea boss wants Sanchez who suits the Italians' high work ethic and is clinical in front of goal as well.

Arsenal fans have already witnessed Cesc Fabregas and Ashley Cole move to their London rivals. Should Alexis also follow their trail, the Gooners would be distraught. But, for Chelsea, getting the former Barcelona man for nothing will be a wonderful piece of business.
