Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has praised the impact of summer signing Alexis Sanchez, who has been an outstanding performer for the Gunners throughout the season so far, the Independent
The Chilean chose to move to the Emirates Stadium over Liverpool in the summer after he ended a three-year stay at Barcelona, and his hardworking, energetic performances have caught the eye and earned consistent praise from manager Arsene Wenger. He is also the club’s top scorer this season, with 18 goals in 30 games in all competitions.
And after earning another man of the match award for claiming two goals and an assist in Sunday’s win over Stoke City, Henry has spoken of his belief that Sanchez is Arsenal’s best signing since his first spell at the club ended in 2007. “I am trying to think if there has been a better signing in the last five or six years,” he said. “Arsenal were looking for a player who could deliver on a daily basis and they have found one.
“He sees the game brilliantly as you saw on Sunday. He doesn’t need a lot of opportunities to put the ball in the net and that is very important. He is always going to score goals but it is his all-round game I am impressed with. That has no price. I, like any Arsenal fan, was waiting to have a player like him. Finally, we have one.”
