PSG are reportedly looking to sign Neymar from FC Barcelona this summer. However, the Brazilian is not the only superstar player they have targeted over the past few days.
According to a report from ESPN, PSG are interested to sign Alexis Sanchez as well, and they would be keen to land the Chilean superstar even if they also acquire Neymar from Barca. Alexis is on an expiring contract this summer, and Arsenal would be wise to sell him right away. Otherwise, they risk at losing him for free in 2018.
PSG sporting director Antero Henrique has also recommenced dialogue with the representative of Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez after initially cooling their interest.
There has not been an official offer from PSG to Arsenal regarding Alexis’ services, but it seems like a feasible deal. Arsene Wenger is reluctant to sell his star forward to an EPL rival, and PSG would make sense. After all, Sanchez has said repeatedly that he wants to play the UEFA Champions League next season, and The Gunners will not participate in the competition in the 2017-18 campaign.
For what is worth, an attacking trio featuring any of Alexis, Neymar, Edinson Cavani, Lucas Moura and Julian Draxler should make PSG a serious contender for the Champions League title. They already are one of best teams in Europe, and landing Sanchez or Neymar – or possible both – would make them an even more dangerous side.
Sanchez would definitively be a good signing. The Chilean is coming off his best scoring season in Europe after being one of the top scorers in the English Premier League last season.
