Alexis Sanchez Chile

Alexis Sanchez is officially an Arsenal player and looks delighted.

Alexis Sanchez completed his transfer to Arsenal last week, a deal which has the potential to be the signing of the summer.

The Chilean is now on holiday, and will meet up with his new Arsenal teammates at the end of July.

While on a break, he looks as if he cannot wait to get started in North London, delighted at sealing his switch from Barcelona.

Sanchez's agent Fernando Felicevich posted an image on his Twitter account on Sunday evening, with a telling message for Arsenal fans, declaring: "We are Gunners."

Such a tweet this time last week would have sent Arsenal fans' heads spinning, and right now many may still be pinching themselves that the club have pulled off a key deal for another major player.
