Thierry Henry says he can’t wait to see Alexis Sánchez in action after the Chilean completed his move to the Gunners.

The 25-year-old forward penned a long-term deal with the FA Cup holders after completing his medical in London on Thursday.

Sánchez, who cost Arsenal a reported £35m, will join up his new squad at the end of July after a brief holiday following the World Cup.

And Arsenal legend Henry, who is the north London club’s all-time record goal-scorer, was thrilled to see the Gunners land the Barcelona forward.

“Congratulations @Arsenal for the signing of #alexisanchez. Looking forward to seeing him play soon,” Henry posted on Twitter.

Sánchez, who scored 47 goals in 141 appearances for Barcelona, expressed his delight to join a club of Arsenal’s stature.

“I’m so happy to be joining Arsenal, a club which has a great manager, a fantastic squad of players, huge support around the world and a great stadium in London,” Sánchez said.

“I’m looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and to be playing for Arsenal in the Premier League and Champions League.

“I will give my best to Arsenal and want to make all the supporters happy.”
