The Chilean moved to the Emirates from Barcelona for £35 million during the summer and has already made an excellent impression on the Gunners fans, winning the club’s player of the month award for September.
Sanchez has had lengthy spells in both Serie A and La Liga and although he enjoys the unpredictability of the Premier League, he also thinks England’s top flight is the hardest he’s played in.
“Compared to the other leagues I’ve played in, I think this is the hardest and I like it a lot, I really do,” Alexis said.
“Before I signed, people had told me about how Arsenal were a big club with lots of quality players. Now I’m here I look at all the players during training and realise just what fantastic quality they all have.”
Sanchez has already showed his versatility for Arsenal, playing on the left and right wing while also starting some games through the middle but the former Barcelona man admits he prefers to play on the left.
“I can run and cut inside on my left foot, but any position is good for me as long as I’m playing football because I hate being on the bench,” he explained. “If you take me off it’s like you’re taking the ball off me.”
