Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are growing concerned ahead of the summer window, as they feel they could lose some irreplaceable players.
The future’s of star duo Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil remain under scrutiny, with both rapidly approaching the final 12 months of their contract, and our landlord has shared some worrying news with the punters.
Yahoo France reports that Paris Saint-Germain are the favourites to sign both Arsenal star’s this summer, as they plot €55m move for Alexis Sanchez and are considering another high-profile approach to bring Ozil with him to the French capital.
Arsenal’s negotiation position is not strong due to the pair’s contract situation and it’s clear the Gunners would prefer to sell to a club like PSG, rather than see their star names move across the Premier League to a rival side.
Our landlord believes offers in this region will be extremely difficult to turn down, although he does feel there could be a twist in the tale with new contracts being signed – but he doesn’t expect both players to stay.
Will Alexis Sanchez or Mesut Ozil be at Arsenal next season? Let us know in the comments below!
