The Chilean forward meets a very specific criteria that the Bianconeri are looking for as they aim to strengthen their squad to become a major force in Europe.
“We're looking for a versatile player who can operate in several positions,” Marotta told Sky Sport.
“We are looking for a quick wide attacker. We would like to have a player like Sanchez but there aren't many players like him at the moment.
“And we shouldn't forget that Barcelona made a big investment to get him. But I repeat, he's a player we would like to have.”
On the subject of transfers, it is unknown whether Antonio Conte will remain with the Serie A champions, but Marotta could only speak highly of the Italian trainer.
“I have always said that the relationship with Conte is a wonderful one. We consider him a great coach and hope to continue with him.
“However, there are issues that need to be addressed before any announcements are made in the coming weeks.”
