As if watching another title challenge crumble into the waves wasn’t bad enough, the Arsenal fans huddled into a corner of the Transfer Tavern have been met with every more worrying news as reports emanating out of Chile suggest Alexis Sanchez could be a target for Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
AS Chile claim the all-action 26-year old has emerged as a viable option to replace the talismanic Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the French capital when he leaves at the end of the season.
PSG boss Laurent Blanc, a former Manchester United defender, is thought to hold the former Barcelona ace in high esteem and reportedly views him as the ideal partner to Edinson Cavani going forward.
A new contract is understood to be on the verge of being agreed with the Gunners, though the Parisians are one of few clubs that surely possess the relevant financial might to prize him away from North London.
It’s been another frustrating campaign under Arsene Wenger, with Saturday’s 3-3 draw away at West Ham likely to have delivered the knockout blow to their title hopes.
Would selling Sanchez be the final nail in Wenger’s coffin, Arsenal fans?
