Arsenal sign Alexis Sanchez: Quotes from Sanchez, Arsene Wenger

Hear from the player and manager about the major signing.

Dean Mouhtaropoulos

So, Arsenal signed Alexis Sanchez today, and we're still celebrating. So by all means, here's some more excuses to talk about him: other people taking about him!  Well, sort of. One of them was Sanchez himself.

I’m so happy to be joining Arsenal, a club which has a great manager, a fantastic squad of players, huge support around the world and a great stadium in London. I’m looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and to be playing for Arsenal in the Premier League and Champions League. I will give my best to Arsenal and want to make all the supporters happy.

I'm happy you're here too, Alexis. Oh, so very happy. Almost disturbingly happy.

Arsene Wenger is pretty damn happy, too.

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 at Arsenal Football Club.

Delighted! That's pretty happy!

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. I’m sure all Arsenal supporters will join me in welcoming Alexis to our club.

Aren't we all just so happy?!
