If you ask any Chelsea fan their major target they want the club to secure during the summer transfer window, over 80% will opt for Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez, and reports have it that Chelsea are keen on bringing him to West London from the North Londoners.

Sanchez himself has revealed his desire to remain in London, which makes Chelsea the favourite for his signature.

The Chilean recently spoke of what motivates him to play the game.

Sanchez said: “Looking at everything I’ve done in my career as a footballer, at all the titles, I believe that what’s hugely important is motivation.

“If a footballer is well motivated and has various things to motivate him every day, he will keep achieving his goals.

“Everything in life depends on feeling motivated, whether you are talking about a child, a family or an individual.

“In my case my life has changed and improved because different things have motivated me.

“I try to do that in every game – to give 100 per cent. Life is like a pair of scales. One minute you can be right up there and the next really low.

“As long as I’m playing football I’m happy – wherever that may be.”
