Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger could fly back from Brazil early in order to secure the signing of Barcelona superstar Alexis Sanchez, according to The Sun. 

The report has suggested that the Gunners boss is ready to return to London when needed to conclude the deal to bring the forward to the Emirates. Sanchez has been linked with a move to north London for some time now, and Wenger is seemingly desperate to finalise the deal.

However, the transfer has by no means been completed, as Italian giants Juventus have shown late interest in the Chilean star. It appears that, despite Sanchez being interested in a move to the Emirates, he is still considering his options, and could yet move to the Serie A.

Gunners fans, however, will be hoping Wenger and Co. can tie up the deal for the World Cup star and persuade him to make the move to England. 


Wenger's determination to wrap up the transfer of the £32 million ace seem to be fuelled from previous mistakes. Last summer, despite completing a deal to bring German international Mesut Ozil to the club, Wenger failed to land two of his main striker targets: Gonzalo Higuain and Luis Suarez. 

It appeared that the north London outfit had agreed a £20m fee with Real Madrid for the services of Higuain before turning their attentions to Liverpool hitman Luis Suarez. The Gunners chief consequently missed out on both players, and is desperate not to make a similar mistake this time around. 


If Sanchez is signed, then, he will act as a major coup for the north London outfit. The Gunners are in need of added options in the forward area, with Yaya Sanogo currently Olivier Giroud's only real back up at the club. 

The addition of Sanchez would give Wenger a versatile asset, as the Barcelona man is able to play on the wing and further forward. It certainly looks set to be a busy transfer period for Wenger and Co. and Sanchez may well prove to be their marquee signing this summer. 


It looks set to be a crucial season for the Gunners as they embark upon another challenge for the Premier League title. Arsenal will be hoping to build upon their FA Cup success from last campaign as they go in search of more silverware.

After only managing to end in fourth place last term, Wenger will be targeting top spot come May 2015.
