Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez could reportedly be moving to Bayern Munich during the summer transfer window, Don Balon claims.

The Gunners are currently mulling over the sale of Sanchez this summer with the forward yet to put pen-to-paper on a new long-term contract.

Sanchez, who is approaching the final year of his Gunners contract, has shown no interest in extending terms, and according to Don Balon, he could be off to the German champions during the off-season.

The Chile international impressed with his work rate during Arsenal's 10-2 Champions League thumping at the hands of Bayern, and Carlo Ancelotti is said to see the forward as the perfect fit to finish his squad.

Don Balon also suggests that the north London club could move in for long-term target Karim Benzema as a potential replacement for Sanchez in the transfer window.

Benzema has not had the best of seasons with Real Madrid this term, and he could be sold out in order to allow Cristiano Ronaldo to occupy his preferred centre-forward position.

Sanchez has amassed 22 goals and 14 assists in all competitions for Arsenal this season, and he remains crucial to their chances of clinching a top-four spot in the Premier League.
