Arsene Wenger insists that Paris Saint-Germain have shown no interest in signing Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean striker is strongly linked with the exit door at present, having allowed his contract to enter its final 12 months, and has so far failed to agree terms on a new one.
Alexis is ruled out of the opening two Premier League matches, which has only moved to fuel the speculation surrounding his future, but Arsene Wenger remains adamant that he is staying put, and has now claimed that Paris Saint-Germain are not even looking at him.
“It’s a long time I didn’t speak to Nasser, because it’s certainly very busy to complete the transfer of Neymar and it’s a long time that I didn’t speak to him,” he said.
“I think if you read the French papers, they are on Kylian Mbappe’s case to finish their transfer market.”
The Paris owner claimed he would speak to Wenger prior to making any attempt to sign the 28 year-old, which is why the French boss is able to word it as he has. The pair have a good friendship and could discuss any potential deal professionally.
Kylian Mbappe has been on our radar this summer also, but the fee being talked about is way out of our range, but the French giants have already thrown their financial weight around this summer by signing Neymar, and are claimed to be looking to splash out once again.
PSG seem unhappy with failing to win the French title last term, and look strong favourites to return to the top this year, especially with Monaco having lost a number of their key players.
Will PSG come in for Alexis if they fail with Mbappe?
