Alexis Sanchez took to social media to post a cryptic update to his followers as the Chile international closes in on a comeback for Arsenal.

The 27-year-old has been out of action since late November after suffering a hamstring injury during the 1-1 draw with Norwich City.

Sanchez was left out of the Arsenal squad as the Gunners secured a 3-1 win over Sunderland at Emirates Stadium on Saturday to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup.

The former Barcelona star is not expected to be in line to make a comeback in time for Arsenal’s trip to Liverpool in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

And Sanchez used his personal Instagram account to send a cryptic message to his followers on Sunday evening.

Sanchez uploaded the picture above onto the photo-sharing app and wrote: “Sometimes we don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.”
