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 manager Arsene Wenger believes there will be an overhaul in the transfer system within a year, after seeing fees spiral over the summer. Paris Saint-Germain signed Neymar from Barcelona for around €200m, and have also signed Kylian Mbappe for €150m – to be paid next year.
Germany chancellor Angela Merkel said Paris Saint-Germain’s spending was “incomprehensible” while adding that: “UEFA and FIFA should still adjust the rules to achieve a more sporting balance”. Wenger says change will come, perhaps in the next year, revealing how things aren’t working.
Paris Saint-Germain will be snubbing all interest in forward Julian Draxler to ensure the 23-year-old stays in France, says Germany manager Joachim Low, reports Football.London.
Draxler has been linked with a move to Arsenal this summer after reports he was seeking an exit from the Parc des Princes. But Low believes PSG are desperate to keep him and won’t let him leave.
“I know for a fact that Paris don’t want to sell him. They are convinced of his outstanding qualities. He made such a big step forward there. I am convinced that he will come out on top at Paris. By now, he’s already playing a big role for us,” he said.
According to the Mirror, Arsenal will fight off interest from Manchester City for Alexis Sanchez this summer, with manager Arsene Wenger having the support of the board. City are believed to be lining up a £70m bid for the 28-year-old’s signature but the Gunners aren’t looking to sell for any price.
With Alexis having 12 months on his deal with Arsenal this summer, a number of clubs were keen on his signature – Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Manchester City, as well as Real Madrid and Barcelona. However, City are the last club standing, with manager Pep Guardiola keen to renew acquaintances with the Chilean international.
According to the Mirror, Manchester United and Liverpool have joined Arsenal in the race for Paris Saint-Germain and Germany forward Julian Draxler. The 23-year-old has told the Ligue 1 side he wants to leave this summer and has a host of clubs reportedly interested in his services.
Arsenal have been linked with the forward for some time, although manager Arsene Wenger recently admitted he has a task to trim the playing squad rather than add to it. The Gunners are overstocked, with 33 players competing for 25 first-team spots, so it’s more likely they will be making sales than bringing in more players this summer.
According to Don Balon via the Express, Barcelona are weighing up whether or not to re-sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal this summer, with Brazilian forward Neymar close to completing a €222m deal with Paris Saint-Germain. The Catalans are targeting a credible replacement and Sanchez might be the best on the market ahead of the new season.
The 28-year-old scored 31 goals and made 13 assists for the Gunners last season, helping Arsenal to their third FA Cup in four seasons. However, they finished outside of the Premier League top-four and Sanchez has spoken out about his desire to compete in the Champions League. It’s believed he wants to leave this summer but his exit hopes have been dashed by manager Arsene Wenger.
With rumours regarding Alexis Sanchez’s future slowly heating up and contrasting reports arriving nearly on an hourly basis, the latest information from France has it that the French giants Paris Saint-Germain have launched an assault on the Chilean superstar.
Alexis Sanchez has been constantly linked with a move away from London with rumours tying his to multiple European clubs.
From Munich to Manchester, the Chilean international has been lastly connected with Paris where Unai Emery and wealthy Qatari owners of Paris Saint-Germain have made it their personal agenda to sign Sanchez and make their club a Ligue 1 title contender once again.
Arsenal’s attempts to tie down the first-team star player Alexis Sanchez to a new long-term contract have thus far proved unsuccessful as the Chilean turned down an initial £275,000 a week, plus an extra 20% if the Gunners qualify for the Champions League next season.
The Chile international appears unwilling to wait a season before potentially returning to Europe’s elite club competition and has confided to the media in his homeland he wishes to play in the Champions League next season.
The latest revelations regarding Alexis Sanchez’s situation at Arsenal have reportedly alarmed Paris Saint-Germain who are prepared to get back in the race for wantaway forward.
According to 101 Great Goals, Arsenal are keen on Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi this summer but face competition from two other clubs for his signature. Manchester United and Juventus are believed to be interested in the French international who is out of contract in the summer of 2018.

French champions Paris Saint-Germain are preparing a mega-money offer for Arsenal key man Alexis Sanchez, according to reports from the French media outlet Le 10 Sport.
The Chilean is reportedly a €65 million target for Les Parisiens, who are hoping the lucrative amount will be enough to persuade Arsenal to sell their prized possession.
Alexis Sanchez has been linked with Arsenal exit for quite some time now, with various reports of the player’s frustration with lack of results and ambition at the Emirates. The Chilean’s reported fallout with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was another key factor in the 28-year-old wanting to leave at the end of the season.
