Chelsea have found their number one target this summer
Chelsea have identified unsettled Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez as their number one target in the summer, per The Guardian.
Sanchez, 28, is just over a year away from the expiration of his Gunners contract, and with Arsene Wenger putting talks of a renewal on hold until the summer, speculation of a departure is increasing.
Reports suggest the Chilean is frustrated with life at the Emirates Stadium after another early exit in the Champions League and failed Premier League title bid.
The Blues are ten points clear at the top of the table and look all but certain to claim the trophy come May.

But they themselves may be on the lookout for a replacement for Eden Hazard, who has supposedly come to the attention of Spanish giants Real Madrid in recent weeks.
It is unlikely Arsenal will want to sell to a direct rival, though, especially one in the same city.
