Sanchez eyes Premiership future

Alexis Sanchez admits that he dreams of moving to England, but concedes he still has much to learn at Udinese.

"I like English football because it is played at 100 miles an hour and they never stop – a bit like me," he noted.

"However, I have a contract at Udinese until 2015 and I'm really not thinking about the transfer market.

"I like to do my talking on the field of play. I look at the improvements I am making and I am happy with the way I am maturing.

"I know that I am responsible for what the future brings and I think I'm on the right path. It's pleasing to know that I am liked and I'd love to play for a big club."

The Chilean World Cup ace has been linked with giants such as Manchester United and Inter in recent times.

"I want a big club, but I am still missing that last piece in the jigsaw which will allow me to take that final step up in class," he added.

"I have to still improve as a person and as a player. I need to score more goals too as assists are not enough for me.

"I also get angry on the pitch too often and I need to learn how to control myself a bit more."

Sanchez had a difficult start to the season, but he has impressed after being fielded as a No 10 behind two strikers by boss Francesco Guidolin.
