Arsenal are being linked with a move to sign Goncalo Guedes from Paris Saint-Germain next summer, and are believed to be confident of striking a deal.
The Portuguese winger was linked with a move to the Emirates prior to his move to the French giants in January, and he has already fallen down the pecking order with his side.
PSG made the bold move to bring in Kylian Mbappe and Neymar for world record fees this summer, putting Guedes out of Unai Emery’s first-team plans.
The 21 year-old was sent out on loan to Valencia where he has so far helped his side to keep to within five points of Barcelona, and his three goals and five assists thus far have helped them keep within touching distance of the league leaders.
He is believed to be likely to become available for transfer next summer, with such talents currently in his parent club, and we are believed to be confident of striking a deal.
Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are both expected to leave the club at the end of the campaign when their contracts run out. There is talk that the latter may potentially sign a new deal, but that remains a huge outside shot.
Guedes PSG team-mate Julian Draxler has also been linked as a potential replacement, although but the speculation regarding his future is very mixed.
Could Guedes be the long-term replacement for Alexis Sanchez? Is Goncalo any better than Iwobi?
