PSG eyeing a cut-price move for Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez’s contractual standoff with Arsenal has been well documented in the media and the disagreement between the two parties has led to a host of clubs monitoring the situation of the frustrated Chilean international.

Now according to reports from the Daily Mirror, Arsenal have been handed a huge cause for concern as Paris Saint-Germain have recently made Alexis’ representatives aware of their interest in the player and the French giants will be plotting a £60 million move to lure the 28-year-old to the Parc des Princes at the end of the current season.

Arsenal severely depleted for Preston North End encounter

Arsenal dropped more points in the title race following a 3-3 draw against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium in midweek and the result was most certainly a very disappointing one for the Gunners.

The North London giants will now be looking to get over the setback this weekend as they begin their FA Cup campaign with a clash against Preston North End at Deepdale and the encounter is certainly one which the Gunners should be winning.

However, Arsenal are not heading into the game in the best of shapes fitness wise as manager Arsene Wenger has ruled out six first team players for the match on Saturday.

Arsenal players fear Alexis Sanchez’s exit

 

Arsenal came from three goals down to claim a remarkable 3-3 draw against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Tuesday night and considering the circumstances of the game, the result can be viewed as a positive one for the Gunners.

Despite the comeback though, one Arsenal player who was visibly not pleased was Alexis Sanchez. Upon the final whistle, Sanchez wildly ripped his gloves off and threw them on the ground, and his frustration at Arsenal dropping two points in the title race was apparent.

 

According to reports from the Daily Mirror, Arsenal are ready to offload unhappy defender Mathieu Debuchy during the current January transfer window.

Arsenal signed Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle United during the summer of 2014 and at the time, the French international was seen as the ideal replacement for Bacary Sagna - who had moved on to join rivals Manchester City.

Debuchy did enjoy a strong start to life at the Emirates Stadium but a host of injury problems have meant that the full back has never really managed to earn a consistent run of games for the Gunners since his arrival.

During his absence with injury, young Hector Bellerin has established himself as the undisputed first choice right-back at Arsenal and it has been no surprise to see Debuchy being relegated to the role of backup behind the promising Spaniard.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has stated that English managers do not get enough opportunities in the Premier League these days.

One of the great things about the Premier League is the rich diversity present in the division. Players from well over 100 countries have plied their trade in the English top flight since the Premier League was introduced in 1992 and such an influx has only contributed to increase in the quality of the league.

A lot of foreign managers have also arrived in England over the past few years and presence of high profile names such as Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp among others, serves as evidence to the attracting power of the Premier League.
