Sanchez appears to hint at possible Chelsea move

Alexis Sanchez appears to have hinted that he could join Chelsea from Arsenal.

Chelsea have been linked with the Chilean amid speculation over his future at the Emirates Stadium.

Reports this week claimed that Blues boss Antonio Conte had discussed summer transfer targets with the Chelsea hierarchy and that Sanchez is his top target.

And Chilean newspaper Publimetro have quoted him as saying: “I am happy in London and hope to finish my contract there.

“I’d like to stay in the city but with a team that is winning things, that has a winning mentality.

“I’m 28 years old, I still have a lot of years ahead of me. I am a player who looks after himself.”

Sanchez, who was speaking while away on international duty, has been linked with a number of other clubs, including Manchester City.

The likes of Paris St-Germain, Atletico Madrid, Juventus and Bayern Munich are also reported to be interested.

His contract at Arsenal is due to expire in 2018 and he has so far not agreed a new deal.

There have therefore been reports that the Gunners could sell him this summer rather than risk losing him on a Bosman free transfer in the future.
