The Gunners forward has been advised by his fellow Chilean to quit Emirates Stadium and go in search of the biggest honours in football elsewhere

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez will not win the Champions League at Arsenal and would “be more useful in a bigger team”, says Ivan Zamorano.

The Chile international continues to see his future called into question as he enters the final 12 months of his contract at Emirates Stadium.

Time is right for Alexis to ditch Arsenal

He recently admitted while on Confederations Cup duty that he is “clear” on what his next move will be, but has refused to divulge whether that will be signing a new deal or making a move.

Zamorano believes his countryman should be looking to take on a new challenge, amid talk of interest from the likes of Manchester City and Bayern Munich, with Arsenal unable to match his ambition.

The legendary former striker told SFR Sport: "I think Alexis knows very well what he has to do.

“He's a guy who has goals and ambitions, they're fundamental to making a choice. I think he likes to win.

"What he wants, above all, is to win the Champions League, and I don't think he'll have that possibility at Arsenal.

"He must know that he will be more useful in a bigger team. But it's his decision, his personal choice. Whatever happens, Alexis will be at the level he deserves to be and which he must achieve."

Sanchez has spent three seasons at Arsenal, having completed a £31.7 million move from Barcelona in 2014, and has made 145 appearances for the club.

He has found the target 72 times in those outings, with the 2016-17 campaign seeing him reach the 30-goal mark for the first time in his career.
