PHOTO: Alexis Sanchez meets Radamel Falcao in Arsenal tunnel

With the Emirates Cup taking place this weekend, Arsenal new boy Alexis Sanchez has been snapped chatting with Colombian striker Radamel Falcao.

Arsenal's new signing caught up with a fellow goal-getter earlier today, as he was photographed talking to Monaco striker Radamel Falcao.

The two players are in London for their respective clubs this weekend in the Emirates Cup, with Monaco facing Valencia and Arsenal playing Benfica on Saturday.

The two players' sides then go head to head on Sunday with the Gunners playing host to the Ligue 1 club.

Arsenal fans are going into the new season in high spirits, with the arrival of Alexis believed by many to be the catalyst for a return to the glory days for Arsene Wenger's men.  

But it is the fact that the Frenchman has also signed three other quality players in the form of David Ospina, Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers that suggests there is no more messing around at the Emirates.

Arsenal could be on the verge of returning to title-winning glory, and if they do, Alexis is expected to be at the forefront of any success.  But for now, they will only be interested in what he does this weekend.
