Arsenal signing Alexis Sanchez has been pictured training with the club for the first time.

New Arsenal signing Alexis Sanchez has been pictured training with his new teammates for the first time.

The 25-year-old was at the club's London Colney training ground, after a delay in visa paperwork had prevented him from taking a full part in the club's pre-season training camp of Austria.

The former Barcelona star is expected to make his debut at the Emirates Cup this weekend.

Sanchez was pictured alongside the likes of Santi Cazorla and Mathieu Flamini as he took part in a full session, as he bids to reach top fitness after a break due to the World Cup.

His arrival is a big boost for the club, with German World Cup winning trio Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski not due back until August 11.

How important will Sanchez be for Arsenal?
