Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is of the opinion that Alexis Sanchez could be the best Arsenal signing for the last five to six years.
“He is a very, very good player and you know that if he is on tune, then Arsenal have a lot of chances to win the game. I am trying to think of the last five or six years [to decide whether there has been a better signing].
It is still early days but so far it is very good. He is doing extremely well. He is going to score goals but it is his all-round game that I am so impressed with. That has no price. As a fan you are waiting to have a player like that. Finally we have one.”
Henry is right when he says it is too early and one must remember that only last year the Arsenal fans were claiming that Ozil was the best thing since sliced bread, though they were not alone in that, the UK press went in to hyerdrive over the German and the same pattern is developing with Sanchez, however it has to be said, Sanchez has been brilliant and if his form holds up then Henry may well be right.
