The fee is undisclosed but widely reported as up around the £35million mark.

“I’m so happy to be joining a club which has a great manager, a fantastic squad of players and huge support around the world,”  Sanchez told the Gunners’ club site.

“I’m looking forward to playing in the Premier League and Champions League.”

While we’re on the subject of new signings at The Emirates, a deal for Newcastle right-back Mathieu Debuchy is set to be concluded over the course of the next few days too.

Exciting times.

    Goals like win an fa cupp, qualify for champions league, stay debt free, and pass financial fairplay! Dunno what arsenal fans are moaning about sounds great to me.

    In a staggering realisation of self-preservation not usually associated with their recent transfer policy, Newcastle have said Dubuchy aint going anywhere until his replacement (Daryl Janmaat, by all accounts) is through their door.
    Remains to be seen though.
