After a disappointing exit to the World Cup, including missing in the penalty shoot-out, Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez can now look forward in his search for a new club.
An Arsenal bid
Arsenal, Liverpool and Juventus are all said to be interested in the Chilean's signature, although its the Gunners that are in pole position.
A £32 million bid will reportedly be made by Arsenal during the next week, with Barcelona looking to offload players after a disappointing season.
Sanchez's future is unclear, despite bagging 21 goals this season coming off the right wing. It's this incredible goal tally that has got Europe's top club's interested in purchasing the forward.
How would he fit in at Arsenal?
Arsenal, who are in desperate need of a striker to support Olivier Giroud, would ideally buy the Chile attacker with the intentions of playing him down the middle. Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and returning Joel Cambell all have the quality to play down the right flank of Arsenal's attack, therefore purchasing Sanchez for reinforcement in that area wouldn't make much sense.
Could Sanchez adapt to the Premier League?
Famed as being the most physical league in world football, we often see overseas players needing time to adapt to the strenuous task of playing in England (just look at Mesut Ozil for example).
Sanchez, who stands at 5ft7in tall, has the natural ability to be a star for Arsenal. Other players who are similar to the Chilean's play style, like Sergio Aguero and Luis Suarez, have thrived in the Premier League, and are now renowned all across the world for being two of the top strikers in world football.
Could Sanchez, who bags on average one goal every two games, follow in the footsteps of other South American strikers in the Premier League?
