Spanish daily AS have reported that Arsenal are ready to pay 24m for Barcelona winger Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean forward has been in superb form this season for Barcelona and has played a big part in the Catalan club’s La Liga season, scoring 18 goals and producing 10 assists. Yet, his future at the club continues to be discussed with links to Juventus heavily mentioned in both Spanish and Italian press of late. Barcelona recently admitted that no bids had been received for the former Udinese man, which has led Premier League side Arsenal to show interest. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is desperate to add extra fire power to his side and provide competition and back-up to French striker Olivier Giroud, who suffered a dip in form earlier this year. And, Spanish daily AS are reporting that Arsenal officials have told Barcelona that they would be willing to pay up to 24m for the 25-year-old.
