Arsenal FC 2014/15 Shirt - Alexis Sanchez - Number 17 - Back SideOne of the best power forwards in the game, the twenty five year old Chilean international, Alexis Sanchez, joined Arsenal earlier today from Barcelona.

The transfer is worth £30 million and Sanchez signed a four year contract, which will see him earning a salary of up to £140,000 per week.

Alexis had a great World Cup and has been consistently awesome competing on the highest level at Barcelona FC.

Arsenal, on the other hand, are in a need of a forward of his qualities, to relieve the pressure on their overworked striker, Olivier Giroud.


This move also paves the way for Luis Suarez to join Barcelona FC in the coming days.
