PSG to overlook Alexis in favour of Arsenal team-mate?

Paris Saint-Germain are claimed to be considering a move to sign Lucas Perez, instead of the previously linked Alexis Sanchez.

The Chilean forward has been a high talking point in the press this season, with the player’s contract entering it’s final year next month, and Paris have been among a number of clubs linked with his signature.

Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea are also believed to be strong in the race to sign the Gunners superstar, and they may now look elsewhere to bolster their squad.

Edinson Cavani is also not keen on having to battle a superstar for his central role, and having enjoyed his first season out of the shadow of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, he isn’t happy about the thought of now having to fight Alexis for a first-team role, or to be pushed out wide once more.

Lucas Perez is now being eyed as a potential back-up to the Uruguayan goalscorer, as well as being somewhat especially strong out wide also. PSG manager Unai Emery was supposedly keen on Perez from his time as Seville boss previously, and is keen on a reunion in France.

The Spanish forward has failed to break into Arsene Wenger’s first-team plans this term, despite impressing on a number of outings, and Perez is believed to be frustrated with the constant snubs.

He may now be offered the chance to try his hand in French football, although the thought of having to battle with Edinson Cavani, Julian Draxler, Angel Di Maria and Hatem Ben Arfa for an attacking role may not prove tempting.

Should Arsenal sell Lucas this summer? Has he shown more than enough to warrant more game time at the Emirates?

    The express, the sun, mirror or daily nonsense?

    What are we now, the bargain basement that all and sundry are going to raid? Sky Sports came out with some nonsense that AS is off to Citeh – that would be complete suicide, and will never happen. NO ONE is selling their best players anymore, even Southampton are pulling up the drawbridge. We don’t need the money, so we aren’t going to bolster our rivals … unless they want Wenger …..

      Wait, wait, wait. You do realize this is an Arsenal fan page that discusses Arsenal?
      Arsenal that’s owned by the greediest yank out there? The destroyer of sport clubs?
      Kroenke’s Arsenal WILL ALWAYS sell their best players under certain circumstances and such circumstances have come at the club’s threshold. Sanchez won’t renew, until ambition is shown. Such a thing doesn’t exist at this club since 2007, therefore, Sanchez has nothing to do at Arsenal and he’ll go. Either now, for a fee, or at the end of his contract, for free. Now you do the math, my friend and tell me what do you think, will he go to City or Chelsea and for how much?

    I Say don’t sell him i would like to see him get an extended run in the team. He has done some magic things the times he has played this season. I would like to him play wide or in the number 10 position cause his range off passing is immense. Wenger is a dick. He starts players out off form and the players that look good when they do play don’t seem to get any minutes. Same thing that is happening to Lucas this year happend to Joel Campbell last year or the year before.
    I’m afraid if he signs a new contract what is going to happen to this club. I don’t want him running the rebuild off this squad. He has shown with the guys he has bought in the last couple off years that he has lost his eye for talent, or he doesn’t know what to do to coach these players and intsill a winning mentality in them . We have spent 260,000,000 Millon in the last few years and we are going backwards.
