The Best Memes, Photoshops & jokes as Arsenal sign Alexis Sanchez for £28m

The feeling in the red half of North London tonight is reminiscent of the reigning joy on last summer’s transfer deadline day, when Arsene Wenger swooped in for Mesut Ozil at the 11th hour.

Because tonight, the Gunners have landed a brilliant signing: Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona.

After 3 up and down seasons at Barcelona, the Chilean has signed for the Gunners, snubbing Liverpool in the process – a source of great pride for Arsenal fans, it seems.

Another theme doing the rounds is the very reasonable price Arsenal landed Sanchez for – £28m, 2m cheaper than Man United signed Luke Shaw for, for example (though it’s not the fairest of comparisons).

With Lallana also costing Liverpool £25m, Wenger landing Sanchez at this price highlights once again the scandalously inflated price for English players.
