The English youngster has a huge amount to learn from former Barcelona winger Alexis Sanchez.
Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has said that he wants to learn from Alexis Sanchez, the star attacker signed by the club in the summer.
Sanchez has quickly become an Arsenal fan favourite. His quality on the ball, as well as his impressive work rate and determination, make him an ideal role-model for a youngster like Oxlade-Chamberlain.
“It’s hard not to be able to learn from someone who’s been at the clubs that he has,” Chamberlain told Arsenal’s official website.
“He’s an attacking player like I am and he goes past players like I try to. I can always learn from a player like him. The work he does up front is something that everyone can definitely learn from as well.”

Sanchez has been vital for Arsenal this term, appearing to carry the whole team at times. He keeps scoring vital goals and making the breakthrough at crucial moments in games, a habit which “the Ox” would do well to pick up.
All too often in recent seasons, Arsenal have crumbled when the pressure is on, but Sanchez, with his experience of playing at the business end of the Champions League and World Cup, doesn’t get phased by these difficult situations.
It’s another sign of Arsene Wenger’s changing transfer policy that he is now willing to buy players for big fees and on big money. Clearly, bringing a quality player like Sanchez in helps not only the first team, but also the young players like Oxlade-Chamberlain, who can learn from them.
Big-name signings also appease the fans, who were growing tired with Wenger’s spendthrift policies.
