Arsenal signing Alexis Sanchez confident settling into Wenger style

Alexis Sanchez is confident he'll quickly settle into the style of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger's game.

Wenger splashed out £35m to sign Sanchez from Barcelona after he starred for one of the World Cup's standout teams in Brazil.

Sanchez said: "Arsene Wenger's style of play is the sort of style the Chilean national team has.

"Therefore I am used to it. Arsenal plays very well, which fits my style. That's why I moved here.

"I am certainly glad to be the first Chilean ever playing for Arsenal.

"I will do my best to achieve every possible thing with the club."

He added: "The most important thing is to be calm and not to rush things. Everything will be fine as long as I take it easy and calm down.

"But I am also looking forward to showing why I am here."
