INTER Milan are looking to sign Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez

Sanchez’s future at the Emirates is unclear as he enters the final two years of his contract, with the Chilean yet to indicate he wants a new deal.

INTER Milan are looking to sign Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez with an audacious £69million bid, according to reports.

Arsene Wenger insists there’s no cause for concern despite being in the same boat withMesut Ozil.

But Italian champions Juventus have already tried their luck after losing Alvaro Morata, and news outlet Don Balon claims Serie A rivals Inter will be the next to test the waters.

New boss Frank de Boer has reportedly told club chiefs he wants to use newly-invested Chinese money to bring Sanchez to the San Siro this summer.

The former Ajax boss is allegedly ready to cash in on Argentine striker Mauro Icardi in order to free up more funds and space in his squad, with a £69m in the works.

Arsenal have been credited with showing interest in Icardi, and Inter could use that to their advantage as they look to make Sanchez the club’s best-paid player.

The report adds the Gunners ace is open to the move, having already played in Italy for Udinese before sealing a switch to Barcelona.But Sanchez will expect annual wages of £7m if he leaves the Emirates, and Wenger could now face an important decision as transfer deadline day looms on the horizon.

The Frenchman has signed just one big-money senior player in Granit Xhaka, and fans have become deeply frustrated by failed attempts for the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Shkodran Mustafi.

The pair could yet end up in north London if Wenger is willing to dig deep, but the long-serving boss appears reluctant to dip into Arsenal’s well-stocked transfer kitty.

Rob Holding has done an admirable job during pre-season following his low-key move from Bolton, but supporters are concerned by injuries to defensive trio Per Mertesacker,Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel Paulista.

However, Wenger could opt to sign Jeremy Mathieu instead of Mustafi before the month is out, with the Barcelona veteran a much cheaper and more viable option than his Valencia counterpart.
