Arsenal attacker Alexis determined to become fluent in English

Arsenal attacker Alexis Sanchez is determined to become fluent in English.

Spanish-speaking Sanchez is learning English in a bid to communicate better with his Arsenal team-mates.

'I'm trying to learn and it's going alright," he said. "In any case, with all the travelling I've had to do there has not been much time - we were away a lot on international duty or with the Champions League.

"But I enjoy learning English, I learnt Italian and now am cracking onto the English.

"The club is helping me a lot and there are some team-mates who speak Spanish or Italian that can help me."
