Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has expressed his thoughts on why Alexis Sanchez should not be sold at all cost.

The Chilean international is yet to renew his contract which expires next year, prompting rumours that he has played his last game for the club.

Sanchez, who managed to score 30 goals in all competitions last seasons, is rumoured to be considering a move to Bayern Munich or Manchester City.

And after spending one season at the Emirates stadium with the Chilean international, Granit Xhaka is hoping the Gunners can keep Sanchez.

“I hope not, of course [that he doesn’t leave]. He has qualities on the pitch which are incomprehensible. He has made many goals, and is also enormously important outside.” the Swiss midfielder said

“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.”
