Granit Xhaka believes that Alexis Sanchez can be the perfect role model for the young players at Arsenal.

The Chile international is widely regarded as one of the Premier League’s top attacking players since his arrival at the club from Barcelona in the summer of 2014.

Sanchez has been a key part of the Arsenal team so far this season and has scored 14 Premier League goals for the north London side.

The 28-year-old’s future at the club continues to be a source of speculation after he entered into the final 18 months of his contract at The Emirates.

However, Xhaka, who arrived at Arsenal from Borussia Monchengladbach in the summer, has been hugely impressed by what he has seen from Sanchez so far this term.

Speaking in an interview with Arsenal’s website, Xhaka said: “I think Alexis can be a good role model, because he always pushes himself to his limits, no matter if it’s in training or in a match.

“He can be a good role model for the young players.”
