Arsenal midfield star Granit Xhaka doesn’t want the Gunners to lose Alexis Sanchez, according to the Mirror.
Bayern Munich are keen on signing Sanchez this summer as the Chile international remains a long way off renewing his Arsenal contract.
Bayern are reportedly willing to add a little more than Arsenal’s £300,000 a week in wages deal for Alexis.
But Xhaka says he remains hopeful his team-mate will come to an agreement with Arsenal.
“I hope [he doesn’t leave], of course,” he said.
“He has qualities on the pitch which are incomprehensible. He has made many goals, and is also enormously important outside.”
But Xhaka added: “Alexis can play with every world team – just like Mesut Ozil.
“I have been able to play with many great players, but these two stick out.”
Asked whether Ozil, in a similar contractual situation to Sanchez, would stay, Xhaka added:
“I think so. I owe him a lot, he helped me a lot at first.”
Gooners, do you think Arsenal would be able to keep hold of Sanchez and Ozil?
