The current Arsenal squad may be well stocked on quality, but summer signing Alexis Sanchez has singled out his attacking midfield teammate Santi Cazorla as the best player at the club, according to the Daily Star.

Sanchez has admitted that he was not so familiar with the side’s personnel when he joined from Barcelona last year, but now claims that he has come to realise that the squad is packed full of amazing players with Cazorla the standout among them.
“When I arrived at the club I didn’t know the players that well, but I was really surprised by everyone’s quality,” he said.
“I am not saying this just because it’s my obligation to do it as a club player. Every Arsenal footballer has amazing quality.
“Being part of a team like this makes me very proud. I am willing to win many titles here.
“Santi Cazorla is a spectacular player. You never know whether he will kick the ball with his right or left foot.
“Also, he moves with short but quick strides, which is a remarkable trademark too.
“Although I knew about his quality, playing alongside him makes me very happy.”
The Chilean has made a strong impact himself this term, and has already helped the club to book an appearance in the FA Cup final, where they will take on Aston Villa at Wembley on May 30.
However, the 25-year-old looks likely to miss the clash with the Villans as FIFA regulations state that he must leave to take part in Chile’s Copa America campaign.
