The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that Alexis Sanchez will stay at the club this summer, but that is beginning to look unlikely…
According to the Sun, Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal has revealed that his club have asked him about Sanchez – and he has revealed that he woud like the club to sign him. He said: “Bayern have asked me about Alexis and I’ve always told them that he is the player who should come here”.
Elaborating, and confirming that he wants the midfielder to sign: “I would like Alexis at Bayern. He is doing well at Arsenal but I think he has to take a step up and fight with the best in the world”.
Whilst there is no real mention of a bid, Vidal’s words certainly seem to hint of genuine interest from Bayern Munich. That wouldn’t come as a surprise, given Sanchez’s current situation – and perhaps more importantly, his fine form in the Premier League.
Scorer of 24 goals so far this season, there is no doubting that he is one of Europe’s finest. Impressive in front of goal and fantastically direct down the flanks, Arsenal would seriously struggle without him – though the Gunners’ loss could very well be Bayern Munich’s gain this summer.
Vidal and Sanchez are, of course, well aware of each other – given that they both represent the Chilean national side.
