Jenkinson excited by Sanchez signing

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

Alexis Sanchez will help Arsenal challenge for silverware on all front this season, according to Carl Jenkinson.

The Arsenal defender has also backed Sanchez to settle quickly into the club's style of play following his transfer from Barcelona last week.

"He is world class and they are the sort of players you want to see at the club. The squad are buzzing as much as the fans, because if you are going to push on as a club and really compete for things, you need to sign top players," Jenkinson told Arsenal's official website.

"We have done that with him for sure -- it is a fantastic addition. He's quick and direct, he can play up front and on the wing, and he is very dynamic. He will definitely fit the Arsenal style of play."

Arsenal finished last season on a high winning the FA Cup and ending their nine-year trophy drought.

He added: "Once you have got one [trophy], you want to experience it again, so fingers crossed we can compete on all fronts this season.

"We have the squad and we are signing players like Sanchez, so I don't see why we can't."

Meanwhile, Egypt international centre-back Ahmed Fathi has travelled to London for a trial, the defender's club Al Ahly announced.
