Alexis Sanchez is now being linked with a move to Chelsea, of all clubs.

And so it begins: Alexis Sanchez being linked with every club under the sun.

The Chilean is currently in contract negotiations with Arsenal, given that he’s only got 18 months left on his existing one, and since it’s taking a while, the press are starting to link him with a move away.

The latest club to reportedly be after our world class forward, who we bought from Barcelona just two years ago, is Chelsea. As in our London rivals, Chelsea.

Apparently, Antonia Conte wants to bring Alexis to Stamford Bridge in order for him to partner up with Diego Costa. Vom.

On 11 goals each, Costa and Alexis are the Premier League’s top goalscorers at the moment and it’s hard to argue that they would be a formidable pairing.

However, no matter how much Chelsea are willing to splash out, I’m sure Arsenal would rather he disappear to China than sell him to that lot. I think, regardless of whether the Blues are genuinely interested or not, Conte knows that.
