Arsene Wenger: Alexis Sanchez really wanted to join Arsenal

By

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger reveals midfielder Alexis Sanchez had only one club in mind when he opted to leave Barcelona last summer.

The Chilean wasted no time in becoming a firm fan favourite at Arsenal after an impressive start to the season and the Frenchman says experience at Udinese and Barcelona were part of the reason why he had no trouble settling down at the Emirates.

"Alexis [Sanchez] has played in Italy, in Spain and he moved clubs - that of course helps," Wenger told the Arsenal Magazine.

"The second part is that the move is a reward for what he really wanted.

"Alexis had a few options and he chose us because he felt that's where he wanted to go. Sometimes a player moves somewhere and it's not the choice that he deeply wanted. In his case, I think he really wanted to join us.

"On the pitch, the player has his needs.

"I felt that he came into a team that plays in an [attacking] way, where he can express his talent with freedom. It works out well for him. That helps.

"After, another step is that a team welcomes you with the values that you rate, and that in some parts of the team, you can feel at home when you need it sometimes.

"That means there are people inside the squad with a similar culture. For example we have plenty of Spanish-speaking people and I believe that helps to integrate people well."
