ALEXIS SANCHEZ has emerged as a transfer target for Sevilla ahead of a busy summer sell-off for Inter Milan.
The Serie A champions are reportedly wanting to cash in on £85million worth of talent and cut their wage bill by as much as 20 per cent.
Antonio Conte quit the club over the decision, which was taken amid a financial crisis for Inter and Chinese owners Suning.
A number of players have already been identified for a move including Achraf Hakimi, with Paris Saint-Germain hoping to bag a £50m deal.
High-earner Christian Eriksen and Marcelo Brozovic, out of contract in 12 months' time, could also be moved on.
Sanchez, 32, is an option given he was not a regular starter during the Scudetto triumph despite his hefty £117,000-a-week wages.
Spanish newspaper Sport quotes Italian media reports that suggest Sevilla are chasing the Chilean.
The deal would require Inter to accept a cut-price bid for Sanchez.

Having signed him on a free from Manchester United last year following an initial loan spell, it would not be difficult for the club to make a profit.
In addition, the winger may have to take a pay cut even though he has two years remaining on his Nerazzurri contract.
Sevilla could find themselves with more cash to play with later in the window if Jules Kounde is sold.
The centre-back is being eyed by Chelsea, Manchester United and more for a deal that could reach £60m.
