Star-studded Arsenal shortlist to replace Alexis

The report claims Sanchez's team-mates in north London are already aware Sanchez wants to move on and he has made no secret of this fact.

The Chilean ace is under contract until 2018 but Arsenal have been working hard to get him tied down to a new one and put an end to all the rumours.

But any replacement will have a hard time filling Sanchez's boots, who has established himself as Arsenal's best player.

The north London club attempted to sign the striker previous year but had a £35m offer turned down by Lyon, who insisted they would only sell the player if his £60m buyout clause was activated.

It is Juve's Champions League ambition that will most draw Sanchez, as Arsenal lost the first leg of their Round of 16 tie in a 5-1 humiliation to Bayern Munich.

Meanwhile, Sevilla have proven their European pedigree with three consecutive Europa League trophies to their name and they are also challenging Barcelona and Real Madrid for the La Liga title this season.

He'd certainly replace Sanchez's goal threat in the Arsenal team if they were able to get a deal agreed but they'll face stiff competition with the Mirror saying that Liverpool are also eyeing the striker. The attacker has been dynamite for the team this season and should win the PFA Player of the Year after his goals and assists tally. They need to secure his long-term future at all costs if they want to finally take a step forward and compete in Europe.
