Wenger: I'm delighted Alexis snubbed Liverpool for Arsenal

Arsene Wenger admits he does not know why Alexis Sanchez chose to join Arsenal over Liverpool last summer but has voiced his delight that the Chilean decided to move to north London.

Alexis was understood to be on the brink of joining Liverpool as part of the deal that took Luis Suarez to Barcelona, but reportedly chose Arsenal because of his partner's wish to live in London rather than on Merseyside.

The story is too old to be commented.
