The ESPN FC crew wonder where Arsenal's new signing Alexis Sanchez will fit in, and where they need further strengthening.

New Arsenal signing Alexis Sanchez is relishing the chance of playing alongside Mesut Ozil over the coming season.

Sanchez, 24, joined the Gunners from Barcelona on Thursday for a fee reported to be in the region of 30 million pounds.

And the Chile international says he is hoping to win "as many titles as possible" with his new club, while he is particularly looking forward to teaming up with Ozil.

"Mesut Ozil is an important player worldwide, both at club and at international level," Sanchez, who will wear the No. 17 shirt, told Arsenal's official website.

"With Ozil in the squad, Arsenal was [close] to winning the league title [last season]. I hope I can make a contribution so we can win as many titles as possible.

"I came here to win the league title, the Champions League and every title at stake. We have a great squad and we are a big club. We can achieve big things. The team not only plays really good football, but the squad is really good and we can win silverware."

Sanchez went on to confirm he has spoken to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger about the possibility of playing a variety of positions, with his familiar role on the wing not the only slot he may be asked to fill for the Gunners.

"The manager has mentioned some certain positions, but I am not worried about it right now. The manager and I will talk about my role as soon as I start training," he said.

"Arsene Wenger's style of play is the sort of style the Chile national team has. Therefore I am used to it. Arsenal plays very well, which fits my style. That's why I moved here.

"I was told that he is a manager you can learn a lot with. He wants to achieve great things in football and that helped me make the decision to sign for Arsenal."
