Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez would be an ideal singing for Juventus, according to their former star Mauro Camoranesi.
The ex-Juventus midfielder told Goal.com that Sanchez could be the perfect replacement for Alvaro Morata, who has been linked with a move back to former club Real Madrid.
Sanchez has played in Serie A before – the Chile international starring for Udinese during a four-year spell in Italy’s top flight.
His form for the Dacia Arena-based side earned him a 2011 summer move to La Liga giants Barcelona, before he completed a switch to Arsenal in July 2014.
And Camoranesi, who featured on 280 occasions across eight seasons for Juve, believes the 27-year-old would make I Bianconeri a force to be reckoned with.
Camoranesi said: “I heard that it could be Alexis Sanchez. He knows the Italian football.
“He has the speed to cause problems for opposition defences, he will be joining a team with a winning mentality and I think it can be a great opportunity for him and Juve could get more out of him.
“Alexis is a different player. You have already [Mario] Mandzukic and [Paulo] Dybala, and with Alexis they can make a stronger attack.”
Meanwhile, Camoranesi remains unconvinced that Morata’s development will be hindered if he returns to the Bernabeu this summer.
The 23-year-old striker left Real Madrid for Juventus last summer, but is expected to be bought back by the Champions League winners during the current transfer window.
“Juve will lose what they were looking for, a goalscorer, a versatile player who has definition, speed,” Camornesi added.
“When he arrived Juventus knew he was a high-quality player. In Italy it proved it because he re-emerged after not having continuity at Real Madrid. Those who love Juventus like me wanted him to stay because he has performed very well.
“By not being a worldwide star, I don’t think he will get constant games [at Madrid]. Morata is not one of these media celebrities, he is a great player but will probably play fewer minutes than he did at Juventus.”
