Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has been in superb form since signing for the Gunners from Barcelona. He has been one of best players in the league this season, having scored 18 goals and provided nine assists in 27 Premier League starts in 2016/17.

And former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri believes there are some similarities between the Chilean superstar and Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola, describing both as ‘magic’.

He told Sky Sports: “I love Nino Maravilla, in Italian. Sanchez is amazing.

“As well as Gianfranco Zola, no? A magic box.”

Chelsea have been linked with the Arsenal player who has just over a year left on his contract.
