PSG could make January approach for Alexis

Posted on September 23, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

According to The Sun, Paris Saint-Germain could make an approach for Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez when the January transfer window opens. The Ligue 1 side would be able to sign Alexis on a pre-contract deal due to him being a free agent the following summer, and Manchester City are reportedly worried that the French club could agree terms with the Chilean due to their greater finances.

Arsenal are expected to lose Alexis Sanchez either in January or the following summer. He came close to leaving for Manchester City at the end of August, only for the Gunners to cancel the deal due to their failure to secure a replacement in time. Alexis has been on the radar of many clubs in the last year, and the likes of Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain would be attractive moves.

City are managed by Pep Guardiola, who signed Alexis during his time as Barcelona manager. Paris Saint-Germain have strengthened their attack with the likes of Neymar from Barca and Kylian Mbappe from AS Monaco and look set to be a force in Europe as a result. And with the Arsenal forward scoring and creating 34 league games in 38 appearances, Alexis would seemingly be a good fit for either side.

The 28-year-old is said to have lofty wage demands of around £400k-per-week, which PSG could certainly match, while Manchester City might negotiate a low rate. The saga is set to rumble on. Alexis Sanchez is 6/1 to join Manchester City before February 2018, although the likes of Manchester United and Barcelona are being linked with the 28-year-old too.
