Alexis Sanchez figures to be one of the world's most targeted players in this summer's transfer window. The 28-year-old forward scored 29 goals in 50 appearances with Arsenal this campaign, and it was often clear that he was shouldering the load when the Gunners were struggling.

Although Arsenal will likely make a formidable extension offer, uncertainty surrounding Arsene Wegner's future with the club and its failure to qualify for next season's Champions League make Sanchez's departure more likely.
This week, his agent Fernando Felicevich visited with the Bayern hierarchy to discuss a potential move for Sanchez. Felicevich was in town to celebrate the 30th birthday of his other high profile Chilean client, Arturo Vidal. There's no denying that Sanchez would love to link up with his compatriot and chase the Champions League title that has eluded Bayern the past four seasons.
In addition to being enticed by UCL competition, Sanchez would receive a reported $14.5 million a year with Bayern, a significant raise from his current Arsenal salary at just under $10 million. With a year still remaining on his current Arsenal contract, his transfer price is in the neighborhood of around $60 million.
