​Conte cools talks of Chelsea move for Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte does not think the Blues are in the race to sign Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.

Sanchez is out of contract this summer and Conte last Friday spoke of his admiration for the player and how any any potential cut-priced deal for the Chile striker as a great opportunity.

Asked if Chelsea were actively seeking to sign Sanchez, the Italian said: "I don't know. I don't think so. I don't know, but I don't think so."

Conte, speaking ahead of Wednesday's FA Cup third-round replay at home to Norwich, was reluctant to discuss the transfer market.

"About the transfer market, I prefer to talk to the club, also to give opinions," he added.

"I repeat: I don't want to give my opinion about the transfer market."
