The report says that Wenger believes that the 25-year-old has the quality to replace Sanchez, who is expected to leave The Emirates either in January or in the summer transfer window, when his current contract is due to expire.
Wilfried Zaha is the latest name to be linked with a Gunners move with a potential fee of £35 million quoted in the press.
The Crystal Palace midfielder has been a rare positive for their relegation-threatened side, with the winger contributing two of their four league goals so far this campaign.
Palace headed into the worldwide break rock bottom of the Premier League despite Zaha's displays and are effectively seven points from safety given their goal difference.
The Chilean attacker will be a free agent in the summer and boss Arsene Wenger is resigned to losing him, with Manchester City keeping a keen eye on his status.
Arsene Wenger was reluctant to let Sanchez leave last summer - especially to a rival Premier League club. Moreover, with bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur reportedly eyeing the former Red Devil, securing this transfer could prove very hard for Arsene Wenger.
The Chilean brings flair, brings goals, and instills fear in defenders, while also having the character of a born victor, and while Zaha is talented, he isn't a scratch on Alexis.
