Alexis Sanchez has been one of the best signings in the Premier League in recent seasons. He was selected as the “Arsenal’s Player of the Season” last year when he scored 25 goals in his debut Premier League campaign more than what Arsenal’s highest scorer Thierry Henry could manage in his first season. Due to his impressive displays, Sanchez was said to be on the radar of Real Madrid and Manchester United Manchester United while Chelsea were also linked with a surprise move for the Chilean’s signature.
But, while speaking to the Mirror Sanchez quashed all those reports and has gone to say that he wants to win the treble with the Gunners.
“I am very happy at Arsenal and I’m not thinking about leaving,” said Sanchez, who was signed for £30million from Barcelona in July 2014.
“The unity here between fans, club and players is enormous and the supporters have been fantastic. We suffer the defeats and enjoy the victories together.
This campaign we are demonstrating that we are serious candidates for the Premier League title. I think there can be no doubt about our credentials to be champions this time.”
“It’s true that we have lost important points that could have given us a bigger advantage in the table, but, overall, we are having a very good season. “The spirit between the players is sensational and, when we do suffer a blow, we are able to overcome it. That’s very important.
I am always ambitious in football and I still want to win three titles this season – the Premier League, the FA Cup and the Champions League. It will not be easy but we can do it.”
Sanchez is due to return from injury against Chelsea on Sunday and in spite of Chelsea’s poor form this season he is not taking them lightly.
“I am very surprised by Chelsea’s results this season and by the exit of Mourinho,” said Sanchez. “They are one of the biggest clubs in the league, but this year aren’t in the race for the title. But I’m sure they will beat some big teams because their pride is enormous.
For Sanchez winning the FA Cup has been the highlight of his Arsenal career so far but he has set his sights on bigger things.
He admits winning the Premier League, a trophy Arsenal haven’t lifted since 2004, would be even bigger – “It would be a dream,” said the striker “Right now, I don’t know what I would do if we won the league. But maybe a tattoo!”
