Alexis Sanchez could be forgiven for feeling a little fatigued after the gruelling season he has just endured.

The Arsenal star is currently enjoying a well-earned extended summer holiday after helping Chile to Copa America glory earlier this month following his first campaign at Emirates Stadium.

Sanchez has been winding down in his native homeland in recent days, with the 26-year-old not due to report back to Arsenal for pre-season training until 3 August.

And the former Barcelona star enjoyed some time with his two dogs Atom and Humber in Tocopilla on Monday afternoon as he continued to make the most of his break.

Sanchez uploaded the photo above onto his Instagram account and wrote: “Good night Tocopilla … tired.”

The Chile international, who joined Arsenal from Barcelona last summer, is set to miss the Gunners’ Premier League opener against West Ham United on 9 August after being given an extended summer break.

Arsenal are in action in the Emirates Cup at their home ground this weekend.
