Arsenal ready to complete stunning January swap deal for 23-year-old PSG star

October 3, 2017

Arsenal are reportedly going to make January swap deal, which would see Alexis Sanchez and Julian Draxler swap places.

Sanchez’s current Arsenal contract expires at in the summer, and with no renewal seemingly close to being agreed, he could move on a free transfer at the end of the season.

The Daily Star claim that the Gunners could look to act sooner by getting something for him in January, and they could land a stunning deal with Paris Saint-Germain involving Draxler.

The German international only joined the Ligue 1 giants in January of 2016 for a fee believed to be around £40m, as according to The Guardian, and the 24-year-old has done quite well, as he scored 11 goals in 33 games and settling himself as an important member of the squad.

Nevertheless, he can’t be that secure in his position at PSG if this potential deal is being touted, and he may well welcome the idea of a new challenge in north London, especially with huge competition for places following the new boys of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe this past summer.

As it claimed by the Daily Star, Arsenal almost saw Sanchez join Man City for £60m in the last transfer window, and of course, they want to see him move abroad rather than to a direct rival.
