Liverpool have been told they will need to offer £30 million to land Udinese star Alexis Sanchez.

The Chilean international has been linked with a number of clubs from across Europe after impressing in Serie 'A', with Liverpool director of football strategy Damien Comolli a known admirer of the player.

Manchester United and Chelsea are also thought to be keen on the player, while Juventus lead the chase from Italy and Barcelona in Spain.

Valuations have varied for the player, but fresh reports from Italy claim the Zebrette will accept £30 million for the player at the end of the season, reports talkSPORT.

Former Reds boss Roy Hodgson was the first Merseysiders chief to take an interest in the player, and current Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is also thought to be interested.


Liverpool have been linked with a number of wingers and forwards in recent weeks, with Ashley Young, Eden Hazard and Fernando Llorente all thought to be potential attacking targets.

With money not thought to be an issue at Anfield and NESV proving they are willing to spend big in January, a £30 million offer from Liverpool could be a possibility for the player dubbed 'the new Ronaldo' in certain sections of the press.

That said, Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is unlikely to let the player join a rival without a fight.

The Red Devils have been monitoring the player for a number of seasons now, and a Manchester United move is thought to appeal to the player as well.
