Alexis Sanchez looked to be in good shape as he trained with his Arsenal team-mates on Thursday as he continues his preparations for the new season.

The Chile international reported back to the north London club in recent days after being given an extended summer holiday by his club following his involvement in the Copa America.

Sanchez suffered a nasty-looking ankle injury in the Copa America final but looked to be in good shape in training on Thursday at Arsenal’s London Colney training ground.

Arsenal shared the picture above on the club’s official Instagram account on Thursday and wrote: “@alexis_officia1 – back in training. ✌ #Arsenal #Alexis #preseason”

Sanchez will be hoping to help Arsenal end their long wait for the Premier League title next season.

The Gunners have not lifted the top-flight trophy since the 2003-04 campaign and ended last season without any silverware after they finished second in the Premier League and 10 points behind champions Leicester City.

Sanchez helped Arsenal win the FA Cup in 2015.
