Biography

Alexis Alejandro Sanchez Sanchez (born 19 December, Tocopilla, Chile). Sometimes called 'El niño maravilla' ('The wonder kid' in Spanish). He is a Chilean footballer who plays for Premier League side Arsenal FC and the Chile national football team as a forward.

Because of a maturation project, Udinese signed the player to be loaned later to one of Chile's biggest teams, Colo-Colo. After winning two league titles, Alexis was loaned to the Argentinian club River Plate. After a great performance at River, the striker finally joined Udinese. During two seasons, Alexis spread his name all over the world becoming the world's most promising youngster of the 2011 season. On 20 July 2011, FC Barcelona confirmed a transfer for the player of 26m fee (plus 11m in certain bonuses). During three seasons with the Catalonian team, Alexis Sánchez has scored important goals for Barça but also has been criticised due to his luck of goals at some periods with the 'Blaugrana' (Red and Blue) squad. After winning 1 Liga BBVA, 2 Spanish Supercup and 1 Copa del Rey, the Tocopilla-born Alexis signed a 4 years deal with Arsenal FC after the Londoner club paid 38m Euros after the 2014 FIFA World Cup where Alexis displayed great performance until Chile was exited by Brazil in the penalty shooutout.

Sanchez made his first debut with the national team on 27 April 2006 against New Zealand. He participated in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and 2014 in Brazil.

Alexis is considered a hardworking player who fights for every ball. Also, he is very fast and sometimes goes through bad periods where he finds difficult to score goals.
