Alexis Sanchez’s girlfriend Laia Grassi will probably also be popular with Arsenal fans!

Meet Alexis Sanchez’s girlfriend Laia Grassi!

With the news that Alexis Sanchez is close to moving to Arsenal, many Gooners will likely be reading up everything they can about their new star player.

Just a year after Arsene Wenger secured Mesut Ozil so Real Madrid could afford Gareth Bale, Arsenal have pulled off a similar move to sign Alexis Sanchez as Barcelona close in on Luis Suarez.

Arsenal fans are no doubt dreaming of Mesut Ozil advancing into attacking areas with Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott attacking with searing pace and Aaron Ramsey coming from deep.

Reports in the last day or so suggest Sanchez did not want to move to Liverpool as he preferred to be in a capital city where he will live with girlfriend Laia Grassi.

She is a spanish Art director & Designer (Graphic Design & interior Design), currently based in Barcelona, according to her personal website.

Grassi is active on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram – see some pictures from the latter above and below.
