ABOUT

Alexis Alejandro Sánchez Sánchez (Spanish pronunciation: [aˈleksis ˈsantʃes]; born 19 December 1988), also known as simply Alexis, is a Chilean professional footballer who plays as a forward for English club Arsenal and the Chile national team. After his debut season of first-team football with Cobreloa, Sánchez was signed by Italy's Udinese in 2006. Following successful loans at Colo-Colo and River Plate, he began playing in Serie A. In 2011, he was signed by Barcelona for £25 million, becoming the most expensive transfer in Chilean football history. Sánchez signed for Arsenal in July 2014 for a fee reported to be £31.7 million, making him the third-most expensive signing in the club's history after Mesut Özil and Granit Xhaka. Sánchez, also nicknamed El Niño Maravilla and "Ardilla", has been a full international for Chile since 2006, and has earned 100 caps, making him the team's second-most capped player of all-time after goalkeeper Claudio Bravo. With 37 goals, he is La Roja's joint highest top scorer of all-time, alongside Marcelo Salas. He also played in two FIFA World Cups (2010 and 2014) as well as three Copa América tournaments, winning two of the latter.
