Jens Lehmann says Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez "would fit in" at Bayern Munich.

Speculation surrounding Sanchez's future at Arsenal is rife, with his contract up at the Emirates next summer.

Former Arsenal goalkeeper Lehmann told Sky in Germany: "He would fit in at Bayern, although he is not the typical wide player they are seeking.

"He likes to cut inside, I have seen players that make better decisions on the pitch, but perhaps he can learn that.
