Widespread reports in Spain claim Barcelona are set to finalise a deal to sign Udinese star Alexis Sanchez.

The 22-year-old winger has been linked with a host of Europe's top clubs this summer.

Manchester City have lodged a substantial bid for the Chile international, while Inter Milan and Juventus have also been in talks with Udinese.

But earlier this week Sanchez rejected a move to City and his agents are now thought to be in Spain, negotiating terms over a five-year deal with Barca.

Reports claim the Spanish and European champions are willing to offer Udinese a fee of around €25million (£22.3m) plus 23-year-old winger Jeffren Suarez to secure the services of the in-demand Sanchez.
