Alexis Sanchez is reportedly open to joining Arsenal this summer should Barcelona force him out of the club.

Alexis Sanchez has reportedly said that he is open to joining Arsenal should Barcelona decide to offload the forward this summer.

The 25-year-old has been linked with a move away from Camp Nou amid reports that the Spanish giants are keen to launch a big-money offer for Liverpool star Luis Suarez.

While reports have claimed that Sanchez could be used as part of a swap deal involving the Reds, both Arsenal and Juventus have been touted as possible destinations for the forward.

According to Spanish website Sport, Sanchez wants to prove his worth at Barcelona, but would consider a move to Arsenal should the Catalan giants push him out of the door.

Sanchez impressed for Chile during the World Cup, but his time on the global stage has come to an end after his nation were knocked out by hosts Brazil following a penalty shootout on Saturday in the round-of-16 phase.
