Bayern Munich star recommends signing Premier League man
Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal has told the club to sign his Chile teammate Alexis Sanchez this summer, per Sky.
Sanchez, 28, looks set to leave current club Arsenal this summer, with his contract set to expire in a year with no news yet on a renewal.
The attacker has scored 24 goals this season, but it was confirmed on Sunday that the Gunners have missed out on the Champions League for the first time in Arsene Wenger’s 21-year reign.
The player has admitted his frustrations at the lack of progression, despite reaching a second FA Cup final since arriving in England in 2014.
A host of top clubs have been linked with a move, but Vidal hopes his role can help Bayern steal a march on the competition.

“Bayern have asked me about Alexis and I’ve always told them that he is the player who should come here,” Vidal said.
“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.”
