The Arsenal fans demanding change as they occupy a packed Transfer Tavern this busy Friday evening may now be wise to be careful what to wish for, following reports emanating out of Chile that superstar forward Alexis Sanchez is a target for Bayern Munich.

Much of the talk surrounding the German giants has centred around the outgoing Pep Guardiola, though AS Chile claim incoming boss Carlo Ancelotti will target the 27-year old when he takes over.

Despite being one of the club’s key players, the former Barcelona ace has struggled to replicate his stunning debut campaign last year since his £32m move to North London.

13 goals is a respectable enough tally, considering a two month injury, though he has not been as talismanic as his initial year in England.

Former PSG and Real Madrid boss Ancelotti is said to be eyeing him as a potential long-term replacement for Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery, both the other side of 30 now.

The Italian is reportedly prepared to pay €40m in order to lure him to Bavaria as he bids to create a team in his own image.

If Sanchez was to go, who would you replace him with at Arsenal?
