Alexis left Barcelona for the Gunners in the summer.
"Compared to the other leagues I've played in, I think this is the hardest and I like it a lot, I really do," Alexis said.
"Before I signed, people had told me about how Arsenal were a big club with lots of quality players. Now I'm here I look at all the players during training and realise just what fantastic quality they all have."
