Until Alexis Sanchez signs a new contract at Arsenal or is sold, we are going to be blessed with articles speculating on his future on a near daily basis.
We are now at three different sources in France claiming that Paris Saint-Germain are interested in the Gunners’ Chilean star, with the Le Parisien following in L’Equipe’s and Yahoo!’s footsteps on Friday.
According to the French newspaper, the Ligue 1 champions have been working on trying to get a deal done for Alexis Sanchez since the autumn of 2016.
Back then, both Angel di Maria and Javier Pastore weren’t in Unai Emery’s good books, with one playing poorly and the other constantly injured, but things have changed since.
Furthermore, with Alexis Sanchez spending most of the season leading Arsenal’s frontline in Olivier Giroud’s stead, that role wouldn’t be up for grabs, what with Edinson Cavani enjoying his best campaign in France, with 30 league goals to his name.
This is Paris Saint-Germain’s problem, who already have a wealth of talent in all positions for their 4-3-3, yet who would you rather have in your team playing down the left? Julian Draxler or Alexis Sanchez.
While bringing in the Arsenal star doesn’t make a lot of sense on paper for the French club, there’s also the feeling that missing out on him would be foolish.
We’ll see what comes of this, but Sanchez certainly is a transfer target for Paris Saint-Germain.
