Alexis Sanchez is ready to leave Barcelona for Arsenal. The Chile international has rejected the prospect of becoming part of Barcelona's deal for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez and instead is ready to join the Gunners, says Punto Pelota.

Sanchez is also wanted by Juventus, but has chosen Arsenal as his next destination.

The Gunners, which are understood to have already agreed a fee with Barca for the attacker, will double Alexis' current wages to bring him to London.

The Chile ace is flying to Spain from Santiago to finalise his move to Arsenal, which is set to go through for €34 million.
