Arsenal are reportedly keen to use Alexis Sanchez as a makeweight in a potential deal for PSG’s Julian Draxler (via The Metro).
Arsenal are in a perilous position regarding their key players like Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
Both are out of contract in the summer, refusing to sign new deals and Sanchez especially is really failing to perform out on the pitch.
After refusing to sell the Chilean in the summer transfer window, it’s believed that the Gunners could look to cash in on him in January.
The transfer window reopens in just two months and reports suggest that Arsenal are looking to use Sanchez as part of a deal to sign his potential replacement.

A deal with Paris Saint-Germain in exchange for Julian Draxler is being talked about by the British press.
Draxler has long been an Arsenal target and following the arrivals of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar in Paris, opportunities have been slim.
It seems like the best possible deal for Arsenal. The Gunners shift their unhappy star to a foreign club and sign an exciting replacement. However, it’s unclear whether the players would be too keen, Sanchez especially considering his apparent fondness for Manchester City.
