Video: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Per Mertesacker Admit They Want to Be Alexis Sanchez

Arsenal duo Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Per Mertesacker have both admitted that if they could be any of their teammates for the day, they’d chose Alexis Sanchez.

Sanchez has been the focus of heated transfer speculation over the last few months, with the player being linked to moves to Chelsea and even arch-rivals Tottenham.

However, as long as Sanchez remains a Gunner it seems his teammates will look up to him as a character to aspire to.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mertesacker and Danny Welbeck were all interviewed by Soccer AM this week, as the trio looked back on old Tweets they had posted on social media.

Interestingly Mertesacker reveals his World Cup celebration Tweet got less Re-Tweets than Welbeck’s famous ‘Salt Bae‘ Tweet.

Also, things get really awkward when Welbeck throws in an accidental reference to Little Mix, with Oxlade-Chamberlain currently dating Perrie Edwards.

But all of those moments seem irrelevant compared to the part of the interview where the Ox and Mertesacker immediately admit they’d love to be Sanchez for a day:

Time will tell whether both players would be so keen to swap places with Sanchez if he did the unthinkable and joined one of Arsenal’s bitter rivals this summer.
