Stuart Pearce has urged Manchester United to consider signing Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in the summer transfer window.

The Chile international’s future at The Emirates has been a relentless source of speculation in recent weeks after both he and Mesut Ozil entered into the final 15 months of their contracts with the Gunners.

Sanchez has established himself as one of the Premier League’s top attacking talents since his arrival in England from Barcelona in 2014 but currently only has an FA Cup winners’ medal to show from his time at The Emirates.

It remains to be seen whether Sanchez will remain at Arsenal beyond the summer transfer window.

However, former Manchester City boss Pearce reckons Jose Mourinho should consider making a controversial swoop for the forward.

Speaking on Sky Sports News HQ on Wednesday morning, Pearce replied when asked who Manchester United could sign this summer: “There is an Arsenal forward who is available and might look quite nice in a Manchester United shirt.”
