According to Corriere dello Sport, Inter have made Arsenal playmaker Alexis Sanchez is a priority target next summer. The journal claims that new owners, The Suning Group, want to turn the nerazzurri into a “super team” by attracting some of the world’s best players to Serie A.
Aware that the 27-year-old Chilean is stalling on a new deal at The Emirates, the new Chinese bosses are convinced they can convince the player to make the switch. Sanchez is believed to have asked for a pay increase in any new deal with the Gunners that would see his salary rise to £250,000 a week. Club bosses are reluctant to meet those demands which could see the player depart at the end of the season.
