ALEXIS SANCHEZ is open to joining Chelsea this summer.
The Arsenal talisman has been linked with an Emirates exit all season as contract talks stall.
Sanchez, 28, is demanding a bumper pay rise to stay at Arsenal under Arsene Wenger.
Starsport exclusively revealed this weekend that the Gunners are not willing to sell the former Barcelona star to a title rival.
The Arsenal hierarchy are ready to put their foot down and stop Sanchez from going to Manchester City or Chelsea.
However, according to the Daily Mail, Sanchez is happy to move across London and join the Blues.
They say Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is desperate to splash the cash this summer, especially after losing out on his No.1 target Romelu Lukaku, who is set to join Manchester United.
And one of his targets, Sanchez, is open to linking up with the Italian at Stamford Bridge.
Arsenal are desperate to keep hold of the Chile international as Wenger looks to mount a Premier League title charge next season.
The Gunners have already added to their squad this summer with Lyon star Alexandre Lacazette joining in a £52m deal.
