Alexis Sanchez is continuing his recovery from his serious-looking ankle injury...

Alexis Sanchez has taken to social media to reveal that he is continuing to recover from the nasty ankle injury suffered during Chile’s Copa America triumph last month.

The Arsenal forward came off the worse when he collided with Argentina defender Gabriel Mercado in extra-time of Chile’s final win against Lionel Messi’s men.

Sanchez is now officially on his summer holidays as he recharges his batteries ahead of the new Premier League season.

However, the 27-year-old has used his personal Instagram account to reveal that he is still struggling with the ankle problem.

He posted the picture above on the app and wrote: “After a long day, continuing my recovery.”

The extent of the injury will be a concern to Arsenal fans amid suggestions that he could miss the start of the new Premier League season due to the problem.

The Chile international – who joined Arsenal from Barcelona in 2014 – was missing for the crucial festive period last season after suffering a muscular injury in the lead-up to Christmas.

Sanchez helped Chile win their second Copa America in as many years last month and will be hoping to inspire Arsenal to some silverware next season after their trophyless campaign last term.
