Sanchez can be No 1, says Di Natale

Udinese striker Antonio Di Natale believes his teammate Alexis Sanchez has what it takes to become the No 1 player in the world.

The 22-year-old Chile international has lit up Serie A this season with a string of fine performances.

He has naturally attracted interest from the likes of Inter and Chelsea, but Udinese have no intention of selling Sanchez, at least not until the end of the season.

"Alexis can play very well as a regular for a big club," Di Natale said.

"Sanchez is a great football and moreover he is only 22. He can still grow.

"He is a player who can become the No 1 in the world. I have always repeated it.

"He could easily be a regular first team player at Inter, Milan or Juve."
