Arsenal are supposedly eyeing a potential swap deal with Paris Saint-Germain which would see Alexis Sanchez and Julian Draxler move in opposite directions.
The Chilean is out of contract next summer, and is thought to have preferred a move to Manchester City in order to team up with former coach Pep Guardiola, but any footballer in today’s game must be excited by what is happening in the French capital.
PSG made waves in the transfer market by breaking Neymar out of his Barcelona contract, breaking the world record fee by some margin. They are now looking to make waves in the Champions League, and put Bayern Munich to the sword only last week, putting a marker down for any other rivals.
Alexis Sanchez could well be open to joining one of the most exciting attacking sides in the world, and there would be a more than generous wage packet to match.
PSG have supposedly earmarked a £10 Million bonus for the forward should he agree to sign a pre-contract with the club, which would see him join at the end of the season, but with Alexis Sanchez having played only in the Europa League with Arsenal this term, he could help them to make a big statement in the Champions League if he joined come January.
It is believed that Alexis will only be allowed to leave the club should they find a worthy replacement, much like in the summer, and Julian Draxler has been on Arsene Wenger’s watch list for some time now.
The winger has shown to be a great talent for club and country in recent years, and is way too good to be playing a bit-part role for any side, but the wealth of attacking options at Paris at present is mind-boggling.
Would it be good business to bring Draxler in for Alexis come January? Would the French giants be tempted with the possibility of Alexis helping them to win the Champions League?
