Alexis Sanchez has put Chelsea at the top of his wishlist should he leave Arsenal at the end of the campaign.
Sanchez has scored 66 goals in 137 appearances for the Gunners since his £31.7million move from Barcelona in 2014 but the 28-year-old is being linked with a controversial switch to Stamford Bridge in the summer transfer window.
The Telegraph suggest both Manchester City and Chelsea are lining up mammoth offers for the Chile attacker, but the Premier League leaders hold one major advantage over Pep Guardiola’s side.
It’s understood Sanchez is particularly attracted to the style of Blues boss Conte, who has been a revelation since taking over the reins at Stamford Bridge last summer.
Sanchez would also prefer to remain in London next term after settling in the capital, which will also comes as a blow to Guardiola’s City.
Both Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are yet to agree to new deals at the Emirates amid growing speculation either could leave ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.
It’s believed the Gunners duo are demanding around £300,000-a-week to stay in north London.
