Ex Gunner says Alexis Sanchez would fit in at Bayern Munich
Former Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann has risked the wrath of fans by admitting contract rebel Alexis Sanchez would be an ideal fit for Bayern Munich, per Sky.
Sanchez, 28, has been heavily linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium, with just one year remaining on his contract. A number of clubs, including Bayern, are said to be keen on him.
The Chilean has scored 24 goals this season, but is reportedly growing frustrated with life in North London after another year without as much as a Premier League title challenge and failure to get past the last 16 of the Champions League.
Incidentally it was Bayern who ended their journey this term, and Lehmann, who played between the posts during the Gunners’ ‘invincible’ season of 2003/04, believes the German giants would be a good place for Sanchez.
“He would fit in at Bayern, although he is not the typical wide player they are seeking.
“He likes to cut inside, I have seen players that make better decisions on the pitch, but perhaps he can learn that.
“He is a street footballer, you notice that when he is on the pitch.
“Playing him in a system is not so easy but it would be nice to see him in the Bundesliga.”
