West Ham “wants to offer Alexis Sanchez return to Premier League” despite Man Utd struggles | Football | sport
West Ham are reportedly interested in bringing Alexis Sanchez back to the Premier League in a shock move this summer. The former Arsenal and Manchester United striker is currently at Inter Milan but could be scheduled for a return to England.
Inter Milan are rumored to face financial problems and be forced to sell players in the transfer window.
And, according to Deportivo Stadium, West Ham are keen to sign Sanchez ahead of his Europa League campaign next season.
The report also says his former club Barcelona and Sevilla are chasing the 32-year-old, who has scored seven goals and recorded seven assists in Serie A this season.
The Chilean international of 133 caps has been ordered to leave, according to Estadio Deportivo, and a return to England could be considered.
Sanchez is believed to be good to go, as long as he finds the right club.

Either of those clubs will need to make Lukaku the highest-paid player of all time to make a record club transfer return for the forward, according to reports.
Lukaku and ex-Chelsea boss Antonio Conte helped Inter win their first Italian league title since 2010, but the latter has since resigned due to his ambitions not matching the club’s vision for the future.
The Nerazzurri are said to want £ 103million for the striker who has scored 24 league goals.
Chelsea paying that amount would make Lukaku the club’s most expensive signing.
The costs would outweigh the £ 75million the Blues paid Bayer Leverkusen for Kai Havertz last summer.
A third London club could capitalize on Inter’s financial woes, with Arsenal heavily linked with Achraf Hakimi to resolve his right-back problems.
Arsenal have a lot of work to do this summer and it is believed that Hector Bellerin will be one of the many to leave the Emirates in the next transfer window.
Hakimi is among the players who could become available as he could face substantial fees for Inter as they seek to balance their books, although the Moroccan only joined Real Madrid a year ago for £ 36million.
