LONDON, England, July 7- Arsenal have agreed a £34million deal in principle with Barcelona for Chile international forward Alexis Sanchez but Barcelona are waiting to see if Juventus can match the offer.
Sanchez has indicated he does not want to join Liverpool despite their efforts to persuade him and Brendan Rodgers being keen to speak to the player.
That will mean a straight cash deal for Luis Suarez from Barcelona.
Manchester City are also interested with their striker Alvaro Negredo pushing for a return to Spain.
Liverpool have made a £19.8million move for Benfica starlet Lazar Markovic and talks are ongoing with Lille striker Divock Origi’s representatives in Brazil.
Juventus are struggling financially and want to trigger an auction between PSG and Manchester City for Paul Pogba.
Fellow midfielder Arturo Vidal remains on Manchester United’s list of targets but they have yet to formulate an offer.
