Arsenal have rejected an approach from Juventus for forward Alexis Sanchez, according to reports.

The Daily Mail says Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has no intention of selling Sanchez, despite talk of the Chile international growing unsettled at the Emirates Stadium.

Juventus have turned their attention to Bayer Leverkusen forward Javier Hernandez due to Arsenal's unwillingness to negotiate with them, the paper claims.

Sanchez, 27, has seen his stock rise after scoring three goals for Chile and being named player of the tournament at Copa America.

He scored 13 goals in 30 Premier League appearances for Arsenal last season and has two years left on his current deal at the Emirates.

Sanchez has played in the Italian top flight before, spending three years at Udinese between 2008 and 2011.

Arsenal ambitions

Gazzetta dello Sport reported in May that Juventus were closely monitoring Sanchez amid talk that the Chilean was unsure over Arsenal's ambitions and willingness to invest in the squad.

The north London club have already signed Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach this summer, while a move for Leicester striker Jamie Vardy fell through.

Wenger said last month that he was not planning on a radical overhaul of the squad that finished 10 points behind league champions Leicester last season.

"We've already bought one player – Xhaka – from Monchengladbach," Wenger was quoted as saying by ESPN. "So we've bought one midfielder and we're still on the market to buy one or two more players. But it is not easy.

"It is not just buying. We also have to keep a good balance. If you buy too many players you destabilise your team. So three is the maximum."

Sanchez injured his ankle playing for Chile in the Copa America final against Argentina on 26 June.

Arsenal begin their pre-season preparations with a tour of the United States in late July.
