Kerim Frei admits Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez is his favourite player

Beşiktaş winger Kerim Frei has revealed that he does not have a role model but he does have a soft spot for Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez.

“I do not have an idol but I do really like Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, he plays a similar position,” Frei told FitStop speaking on NTV Spor.

The Turkish international plays as a winger and is renowned for his dribbling ability.

Frei joined Beşiktaş on a €3.5 million move from Fulham last season and has four goals and one assist in 43 appearances this season.

The Turkish international is one of the most highly rated youngsters in the Süper Lig and still has three years left on his contract.

Frei was born in Feldkirch, Austria but was raised in Switzerland by his Turkish father and Moroccan mother.

The 21-year-old could have played for Switzerland, Austria, Morocco and Turkey at senior international level but opted for the Crescent-Stars.

Beşiktaş are currently first in the Süper Lig and will take on sixth placed Trabzonspor on the weekend.
