Alexis Sanchez’s proposed move to Paris Saint-Germain has moved a step closer today with reports from France claiming the Chilean has been spotted in a Parisian hotel with both his agent and his lawyer.
Sanchez was absent for Arsenal’s dramatic late win over Leicester City on the opening day of the Premier League last night with an abdominal strain, but speculation about his future continues to mount.
Manchester City are said to be interested in a move for the forward but Arsenal are unwilling to sell to a direct rival.
PSG have already spent big this summer and it was thought that the £199m acquisition of Neymar from Barcelona would put an end to their interest in the Arsenal forward.
But they may still decide to move for Alexis as the French side set their sights on the ultimate prize of the Champions League.
Arsene Wenger has maintained that the Gunners’ top scorer from last season is not for sale, but some believe that he would be unable to resist a bid in excess of £70m for Alexis, who has just one year left on his current contract.
Arsenal have offered Sanchez a new deal worth £300,000 a week, according to some reports.
