Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has spoken of missing out on Chile star Alexis Sanchez.

Alexis chose Arsenal over Liverpool after leaving Barcelona last week.

He said. "That (Sanchez) was one where geography dictated where he wanted to go, simple as that. If anything, it’s been other way (and Liverpool are an attraction).

"Lots of players are really impressed by what we are doing as club and really excited about coming to Liverpool.

"It was not lack of ambition from the club (that Sanchez went to Arsenal). The player and his family want to choose to live wherever that is. Sanchez is a fantastic player and would have suited us; his profile would have been great but it was not to be and we move on."
