Alexis Sanchez claims he is evolving at Arsenal

Alexis Sanchez believes he is a better player a year on from joining Arsenal from Barcelona.

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez scored 25 goals in his debut season in English football following his £35 million move from Barcelona.

The Chile international has played a number of positions under Arsene Wenger but is most regularly utilised on the left side of a 4-2-3-1 formation where he often cuts inside causing mayhem for defenders.

Sanchez believes his quick adaptation to life in the Premier League has seen him make the next step as a footballer.

With the possible exception of Diego Costa at Chelsea, no other player settled better as a incoming signing last summer.

Angel Di Maria was expected to provide similar heroics but flopped dramatically after picking up an injury early on in the season at the King Power Stadium.

"I had a breakthrough in my football life," Sanchez told the BBC.

"Now I switch to the left, I make goals, I pass, I am evolving.

"And if I am put in at centre forward, I will do it in the best way possible."

Arsenal are entering their 12th year since winning the Premier League, but it is an honour Sanchez desperately seeks.

Fans of the London club will hope the Chilean doesn't take a page out of Sami Nasri, Robin van Persie or Cesc Fabregas' books and leave in order to make that achievement reality.

Sanchez also dreams of winning a Champions League with the club after a disappointing last-16 exit at the hands of AS Monaco.

“I would have liked to be in the Champions League final or to have won the Premier League title,” he added.

“We have a bunch of skilful players so to not achieve more is disappointing.”
