The transfer rumours surrounding Alexis Sanchez's future have intensified today, as it has been suggested that Arsenal are about to join the chase for the Chilean forward's services.Sanchez, who scored 19 goals and assisted 10 last term for the Catalan side, could be set to leave the club, as new coach Luis Enrique looks to put his own impression onto the team. 

This has seen the club receive and reject three bids for Sanchez in the past week and reports claim that they received an enquiry from Arsene Wenger into the winger's availability. 

Arsenal would face stiff competition for the Chilean but could be in the market for a winger, as they try to improve their strength in depth in wide positions. At times last season, injuries sapped pace from the side and saw them drop crucial points.

It seems that this interest could gatecrash the chase currently being led by Liverpool and Manchester United, with Juventus also thought to be interested. 

The bids are reportedly from Liverpool, who are the only English team believed to have put in a firm offer and from Paris Saint-Germain, who the Spanish press claim also had an advance rejected.

The saga is set against a very interesting backdrop, as Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has ruled out any summer business regarding Sanchez, saying that he won't be leaving the Nou Camp, appearing true to his word, as current attempts to lure him have been rejected. 

If true, Sanchez's unavailability could cause the rumour mill to turn even more and it is thought that Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata would be the chasing pack's second choice, meaning we could see an influx of bids in Madrid.
