Official! Arsenal tweet confirmation and pictures of Alexis Sanchez signing from Barcelona

 

It’s official: Alexis Sanchez is an Arsenal player.

The Chilean has completed his signing from Barcelona, to the tune of £30m.

And, having successfully completed his medical this afternoon, Sanchez has been fully kitted out for pictures in the new Arsenal training kit.

It was a surprisingly early announcement from the Gunners; it was expected tomorrow at some stage, but having landed their man, they clearly couldn’t contain their excitement and felt the time was right to announce the news to their fans.

Offered to be the makeweight in Suarez’s deal to Liverpool, Sanchez rejected the Reds, as well as Juventus, to choose his first choice Arsenal; a huge coup for the Gunners.
