Barcelona outcast Alexis Sanchez could join Juventus in the summer - dashing Arsenal's hopes of a deal.
Arsenal are aware of Sanchez's situation at the Nou Camp and Arsene Wenger is planning a move when the window opens.
The Chile international has endured a disappointing time with Barcelona since his move from Udinese in 2011.
At the time, he was one of the most sought after players on the planet with Manchester United very keen on him.
Barcelona landed Sanchez but injuries and a loss of form have held him back and now the club are ready to sell.
This alerted Arsenal but sources in Italy claim the player's representatives will hold discussions with Juventus in the coming weeks.
talkSPORT recently revealed how Udinese sporting director Fabrizio Larini had tipped the Chilean to flourish at Arsenal.
