The Chile superstar, has signed a four-year contract, with a one-year option, worth up to £140,000-per-week. The package will put him on a par with current top earner Mesut Ozil.
“I’m so happy to be joining a club which has a great manager, a fantastic squad of players and huge support around the world.
“I will give my best to Arsenal and want to make all the supporters happy.”said Sanchez.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said:
“As many people have seen during the World Cup this summer, Alexis is a fantastic footballer and we are delighted that he is joining us.
“Alexis will add power, creativity and much quality to our squad and we are all looking forward to him joining up with us in a few weeks.
“He has consistently produced top-quality performances at the highest level for a number of seasons now and we are all excited to see him integrate into the Arsenal squad.”
For all the criticisms’s of Arsenal’s attack last season, an attack that includes Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud, and Theo Walcott is pretty good! Add in Costa Rica World Cup sensation Joel Campbell as Arsene Wenger’s attacking options might be as good an anyone in the Premier League next season.
