Alexis Sanchez: This is my best friend at Arsenal

Alexis Sanchez talks up his understanding with Mesut Ozil at Arsenal

Alexis Sanchez has revealed that he gets on the best with Mesut Ozil at Arsenal.

The Chile international has earned a reputation as one of the Premier League’s most exciting attacking players following his arrival at Arsenal from Barcelona in the summer of 2014.

Sanchez helped Arsenal win the FA Cup in his first season at the club and is well-known for his energetic attacking performances.

The 27-year-old is regarded as one of Arsenal’s superstars along with Ozil at The Emirates and the pair have won plenty of new admirers since their arrivals in England.

And Sanchez has lifted the lid on his top-level understanding with Ozil since his switch to the north London club two years ago.

Sanchez is quoted as saying by The Daily Express: “I get on the best with Ozil.

“I enjoy playing with everyone but I get on even better with him.

“We don’t need to say anything to each other, it just takes a glance.

“Having a player like Ozil in midfield and doing one-twos with him is fantastic because he is a quality player going forward.

“He helps me and also makes me improve.”
