Sevilla are looking for a bargain deal for Inter Milan’s Alexis Sánchez this summer, according to reports.
Known over the years for attracting emerging talent, Sevilla has strayed somewhat from that philosophy of late, bringing in Ivan Rakitic last summer and Papu Gomez in January.
And now Spanish publication Sportciting media reports from Italy, Sevilla are looking to add the 32-year-old Inter Sanchez forward to their ranks in the upcoming transfer window.

Sanchez, who has a contract with Inter until the summer of 2023 and receives around £6million a year from the club, would not normally be seen as an attractive proposition for the LaLiga outfit.
However, given Inter’s financial predicament at the moment, Sevilla are looking to take advantage of the Chilean forward.
Inter currently has to cut their wage budget by 20 percent, according to The Gazzetta dello Sport, with the club having to sell a large number of players – generating around £86.5 million – to keep afloat.
And it was Inter’s financial shambles that led to Antonio Conte’s sensational resignation as manager just weeks after taking their first Serie A title win in 11 years.

So Sanchez could be one of those people looking to sell Inter to raise vital funds after the alarming impact of the Covid pandemic.
And the report goes on to claim that Sevilla, which finished fourth in LaLiga and will compete in the Champions League next season, is seen as a desirable destination for Sanchez.
Sanchez is no stranger to Spanish football, having played for European giants Barcelona between 2011 and 2014, scoring 46 goals in 141 matches.
The Chile international then sealed a move to Arsenal, where he blossomed under Arsene Wenger and was heralded as one of the best players in the Premier League.

However, Sanchez would controversially move to Manchester United in January 2018 and since moving to Old Trafford he has struggled to reach the same heights.
Sanchez had a terrible time at United, scoring just five times in 45 games before finally ending his nightmare of initially signing for Inter on loan before making the deal permanent in the summer of 2020.
And while he hasn’t reached his top level at the San Siro yet, he has returned to some form and helped Inter secure the Serie A crown by scoring seven times and providing five assists in 30 appearances for the club.
