Reports in Chile suggest that Paris Saint-Germain are set to offer Alexis Sanchez a £9 million sign-on fee in a bed to seal his signature in January (via The Mirror).
After the turmoil of the last few months, this could be the ideal January window if this situation pans out for Arsenal Football Club.
It seems clear that Alexis Sanchez will not remain at the club past this season and after the deadline day move for Thomas Lemar, Arsene Wenger is clearly planning ahead.
Manchester City lead the race for the Chilean’s signature, that much was clear after their late move for the attacker.
A number of other sides like Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain were looking at Sanchez over the summer and now, reports suggest that the latter could return with a new offer.

El Mecurio claim that the Ligue 1 side are prepared to offer the forward a £9 million signing-on fee in order to seal his signature.
This would be the ideal way to resolve this situation. Alexis Sanchez clearly isn’t exactly in the best frame of mind or form for the Gunners right now. Arsene Wenger has long been interested in Julian Draxler, a player who has been linked with a move away from the Ligue 1 side in recent weeks. Perhaps the Gunners could organise some sort of swap deal which would benefit all parties.
