Arsenal have already booted in one of the transfers of the summer window in signing Alexis Sanchez and his recent form suggests the Chilean will begin paying back his £35m fee in Premier Leaguegoals post-haste.
However, since moving to Europe he has struggled to find the net, or indeed the team-sheet, to the same extent in continental action.
After a brace of barren campaigns following his arrival at Udinese, Sanchez struck 12 times in his final season in Serie A, only dropping below that output once in his three seasons at Barcelona.
He’ll arrive at the Emirates on the back of the best club league scoring campaign of his career in which Lionel Messi’s injury offered him the greater share of minutes required to land 19 net-bulgers.
The bwin layers go 17/20 about the former Camp Nou resident notching more than 11.5 goals in his first English top-flight season.
Consistent goal-getting that is Jeff, but when it comes to continental competition, Sanchez’s knack for the net has been far less pronounced making 19/20 odds of under 3.5 Champions League strikes a very attractive wager.
In 33 European games to date he’s scored just three times, most intriguingly drawing a blank during a 2013/14 season which, as previously mentioned, was the most profitable of his career overall.
Somehow it’s 3/4 that he hops the overs bar in spite of this.

While it’s true that Sanchez played only a shade over half the 810 minutes on offer in his nine appearances last term, this could just as easily be demonstrative of Gerardo Martino’s lack of faith in the Chilean’s ability to fire in cross-border competition.
