The Chile international has been one of the standout performers in the Premier League following his £35m move to The Emirates from Barcelona this summer.
Sanchez has scored seven Premier League goals, and scooped PFA fan player of the month for October after starring displays against Hull City and Sunderland.
Understandably, there is a huge appetite from Arsenal supporters and neutrals to keep close tabs on the talented South American on social media.
While Sanchez boasts 439,000 followers on his Twitter page, an Instagram account purporting to be the Arsenal forward’s is a fake.
Just to let you know that I don ' t use Instagram. There is a fake account (9ALEXISSANCHEZ). Please unfollow. Thanks!
— Alexis Sánchez (@Alexis_Sanchez) November 5, 2014
The Instagram account, named 9alexissanchez, has the following tagline: “Football player currently playing for Arsenal.”
The imposter has already gained an impressive 684,000 followers on the social media site, 245,000 fans more than the forward’s official Twitter account.
So while Sanchez could do with taking social media tips from the administrator of the fake account, the prolific Arsenal striker urged his fans to unfollow.
