The total cost of Arsenal signing Alexis Sanchez comes in at £113 million, according to a new report.
Goal have released a transfer study, calculating summer fees and the amount of wages with various variables due to be paid out over the course of the players' contracts.
It's a hugely expensive figure, but one which pales compares to the £199 million Barcelona will shell out by bringing in Luis Suarez.
The £113 million investment, is according to Goal's figures, higher than the £93 million which was signed off a year earlier to pay towards Mesut Ozil.
While Ozil is yet to look convincing on a consistent basis to repay that level of investment, Sanchez looks like a sure fire hit.

It's a stunning return from the South American, in a league where foreign players have often struggled at times to instantly adjust.
Spread over the course of Sanchez's contract which runs until 2018, the total figure seems far less daunting. Whichever way you cut it however, the Chilean international appears great value for money, especially so if he can maintain his current level of performance.
