Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez has said that winning titles with Arsenal is his top priority, in his first interview after joining the club.

Sanchez was unveiled as a Gunners player on Thursday, the same day as the Arsenal launched their new Puma kit for the upcoming Premier League season.

The Chilean international spoke about his reasons for joining the club, his thoughts on Gunners boss Arsene Wenger and ambitions with his new club.

"I feel happy to be here. I know this club has a manager that looks after his players and takes care of them as well. I am here to win titles and to achieve as much as possible," Sanchez told Arsenal's official site.

"Arsenal is a club that cares about the players and I can learn a lot here. It is also a great team. That's why I am 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," the former Barcelona forward explained.

The 25-year-old forward also spoke about Arsenal's style of play and the feelings about him being the first Chilean to represent the Gunners.

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

"I am certainly glad to be the first Chilean ever playing for Arsenal. I will do my best to achieve every possible thing with the club," Sanchez added.

The former Udinese striker, who is Arsenal's second highest priced player, is looking forward to linking up with the club's record signing from last season Mesut Ozil.

"Mesut Ozil is an important player worldwide, both at club and at international level. With Ozil in the squad Arsenal was [close] to winning the league title. I hope I can make a contribution so we can win as many titles as possible."

Sanchez, who is expected to make his debut for Arsenal in the Emirates Cup, will be under pressure to make a good first impression. But the player is not too worried about it, saying that he will stay calm and not rush things in order to prove himself.

"The most important thing is to be calm and not to rush things. Everything will be fine as long as I take it easy and calm down. But I am also looking forward to showing why I am here," the Arsenal forward concluded.
