Juventus are eyeing Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez as an ideal replacement for Alvaro Morata, according to Tuttosport.

The Italian champions recently saw the Spanish striker head back to Spain as Real Madrid activated a clause they held in the deal that originally took him to Italy.

It is believed that they will sell Morata on this summer for an easy profit, but a return to Juventus doesn’t look likely.

Instead, the Serie A champions must look at replacements and are looking at a number of potential options. And according to Tuttosport, they have identified Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez as the ideal replacement for Morata.

They believe that he would be the perfect man to complete their attacking line up but face a fight to lure him away from the Emirates.

He is one of the star men in Arsene Wenger’s team and it is unlikely they will be willing to sell him at any point.

They have been keen to get him signed to a new deal for several months, but perhaps if a top striker arrives this summer they would consider sanctioning a sale.
