Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has missed his side’s pre-season action due to his involvement at the Copa America, where the 26-year-old helped his Chilean side to a superb triumph, but clearly the South American hasn’t been idle.
Gunners fans will hope Alexis can build on his excellent first campaign at the North London club, during which he netted 25 goals, as Arsene Wenger sets about mounting a genuine Premier League title challenge.
