Clubs Line Up To Sign Out Of Favour Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez is attracting interest from numerous clubs with the Chilean forward reportedly free to leave Inter Milan this winter.

The former Arsenal and Manchester United star has struggled to recapture his top form since arriving at Old Trafford in 2018.

Sanchez showed glimpses of his old self after joining Inter on a permanent basis in 2020, but it now appears that his time with the current Serie A champions is also drawing to an end.

According to InterLive, the Nerazzurri are prepared to let the player leave for next to nothing, with a handful of clubs thought to be interested.

Sanchez has two years left on his current Inter deal, but if the report is to be believed, the club's hierarchy will attempt to move him on in the January transfer window.

Spanish cross-city rivals Sevilla and Real Betis are both being mooted as likely destinations.

While wage demands could prove to be a slight stumbling block, it is expected that the player would be more than willing to return to La Liga - almost a decade after first moving to the league with FC Barcelona.

Central to Inter's decision to sell is Sanchez's injury record, which makes for grim reading.

The two-time Copa America winner has missed 26 matches in two seasons for the Italian club, calling into question his ability to deliver for the club on a regular basis moving forwards.

Seven goals in 31 appearances since joining Inter on a permanent basis does highlight his worth, but with the injuries now starting to mount, the club is seemingly preparing to cut its losses.

It is believed that the Chilean's continued commitment to his national side may have exacerbated many of his injury problems in recent years.

Earlier this season, for instance, new Inter boss Simone Inzaghi was less than impressed at Sanchez, who chose to be involved in this summer's Copa America tournament - in spite of his ongoing injury issues.

For the time being, Sanchez remains in Inter's plans, with the player expected to be involved in the side's next Champions League fixture against Fenerbache.

The 32-year-old will be hoping that his persistent fitness issues are now behind him, as he has an opportunity over the next couple of months end his spell in Italy on a high note.
