Arsene Wenger says the Chilean forward ‘wants to win everything’ with Arsenal next season.
The former Barcelona man excelled during his first season at the Emirates, scoring 25 goals in 52 appearances as the Gunners retained the FA Cup.
And Wenger has revealed the 26-year-old is already thinking of next season at Arsenal and is determined to win as many trophies as possible.
‘I texted him [after the final] and he texted me back,’ said Wenger on the Arsenal site.
‘He was already focused on next season with Arsenal and wants to win everything with us. He was thrilled and very happy.’
‘They had quite a comfortable lead when he took the penalty but I was a bit worried because he missed one with us.
‘He has shown again that he is scared of nothing. He took the ball and chipped the keeper. It was quite audacious but I was of course over the moon to see him bring the trophy to a country that has waited for such a long time.’
