Chilean wing ace reveals why he left Nou Camp for north London.
Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has said that the reason he left Barcelona this summer was to win every trophy he could in the Premier League, the Daily Express reports.
Arsene Wenger signed Sanchez in the summer for £35m and he has arguably been the Gunners’ most impressive player this term.
Having already scored 12 and set up three, he is a major reason for the club’s current sixth place standing in the league.
However, despite their disappointing showing so far, the 25-year-old believes that the club have what it takes to collect some silverware.
“Now that I’m here, sometimes I stop to look my teammates during the training session and I realise that I’m surrounded by a lot of quality stars,” he said.
“I have been impressed by their attitude and their talent.
“I know that with this team we can win many trophies in the coming years. I’m convinced.
“I’m very grateful to Barcelona for signing me and helping me to grow both as a player and person.
“But I am now at Arsenal and I hope to win everything here. That’s why I came here.”
