The Chilean superstar has been handing reporters an absolute field day by teasing us throughout the last few months on whether he’ll be sticking around as a Gunner.

But following links to PSG, Man City and Bayern Munich, Alexis has handed us an early indication that his preference (for now) is to stay and pursue the Premier League title in a red and white shirt.

Alexis touched down in London earlier on this morning and after renewing his visa in France and shaking off an illness, got back into action out on the training pitches.

Here’s some of the best shots, including the rest of the squad as they prepare for this weekend’s Community Shield clash against Chelsea.
