Arsene Wenger has stated new £35m signing Alexis Sanchez will add power, creativity and quality to the Arsenal team next season. The Chilean forward was deemed surplus to requirements at Camp Nou following the capture of Uruguayan Luis Suarez from Liverpool.
“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,” said Wenger. “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.”
“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,” added Wenger.
“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,” said the 25 year-old Chilean. “I’m looking forward to playing in the Premier league and the Champions League.”
