Arsenal right back, Carl Jenkinson claims the signing of Alexis Sanchez is every bit as exciting as when The Gunners splashed out £42M on Mesut Ozil last summer.

Sanchez became Arsenal`s second most expensive player in history last week when Wenger paid in excess of £30M for the Chilean forward, and Jenks says his arrive has got everyone “buzzing” again just as they were when the German world cup winner arrived in 2013.

Speaking with Arsenal.com the young Englishman said, “He is a fantastic player, everyone at the club is buzzing about it, it is a similar feeling to when Mesut Ozil signed last year.”

“He is world class and they`re the sort of players you want to see at the club. The squad are buzzing as much as the fans, because if you`re going to push on as a club and really compete for things, you need to sign top players.”

“We have done that with him for sure – it is a fantastic addition. Everyone is over the moon that we have signed someone of that calibre.”

“He`s quick and direct, he can play up front and on the wing, and he is very dynamic. He will definitely fit the Arsenal style of play, and he is very similar to Theo in the sense that he is very quick and tricky.”

“If you`re world class then you fit into any side and he`s definitely in that category.”
