Arsenal transfers: ‘Alexis Sánchez made mistake not joining Liverpool’

Phil Thompson says Alexis Sánchez "doesn't know what he's missing" by choosing to join Arsenal ahead of Liverpool

Alexis Sánchez will come to regret turning down a move to Liverpool to join Arsenal this summer, according to Phil Thompson.

The Gunners confirmed the signing of the 25-year-old Chile international on Thursday after agreeing a £35m deal with Barcelona for the striker.

Liverpool were keen to bring Sánchez to Anfield as part of the deal which has seen Luis Suarez move to the Camp Nou, but the forward appeared to have his heart set on a move to Emirates Stadium.

And the former Liverpool defender believes that the striker has made the wrong decision.

“Sánchez doesn’t know what he’s missing by not joining Liverpool,” Thompson told Sky Sports News.

“The passion, power and worldwide recognition of Liverpool is strong.”
