Arsenal new-boy Alexis Sanchez trained on his own for the first time at London Colney today after returning from holiday.

The 25-year-old had initially been expected to join up with the rest of his team-mates yesterday morning before heading out to Austria for a four-day training camp.

However, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger confirmed that the £32m signing wouldn’t travel to Austria as he had to get a working visa from Paris instead.

“I don’t think Sanchez will come to Austria because he has to go to Paris to get a visa, so he will only go and work in London”, said Wenger.

Chile international Sanchez took part in a light training session on Tuesday with members of the Arsenal U21 squad, but spent much of the day working on his fitness in the club’s gymnasium.

Sanchez is pencilled in to feature at the Emirates Cup this weekend alongside David Ospina, Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers – all of whom have been signed by the club for a combined £60m in the past month

Colombia goalkeeper Ospina will have his first training session on Thursday.

FA Cup holders Arsenal return to England later this week to complete their pre-season campaign with the Emirates Cup tournament before facing Manchester City in the Community Shield.

I think Sanchez should just play the last 20mins of the last Emirates Cup game against Benfica to feel the Emirates fanbase atmosphere. Then play some part against City. It will be great to see him get started when the season kicks off fully.
I am truly happy with our new signings, they are all fantastic and great captures.

Well I strongly believe we have enough n those who r saying Prof should buy a striker or midflder or who should play what they r in the past error n their opinion is long gone. We have what we have been waiting for.
