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.
Club legend says Arsenal should sell Sanchez due to his attitude problem
Alexis Sanchez’s frustrations at Arsenal reached melting point after he ripped off his gloves and threw them into the ground following the Gunners’ failure to beat Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Tuesday night.
While many Arsenal fans have been impressed with Sanchez’s desire to win at all costs, ex-Gunner Charlie Nicholas was left less than pleased with the actions of the Chilean superstar and has gone on to state that his former side should consider selling the attacker if his attitude does not improve.
Nicholas told Sky Sports, “Alexis Sanchez is throwing tantrums because he was doing brilliantly before Olivier Giroud came in. Yes, Giroud is scoring goals but what else does he do? Sanchez was doing that and far more.
“Saying that, Sanchez is a top-class player but he's got no divine right to just stand out wide and expect everybody to pass to him.
“I don't know what is going on with him - I think he needs telling and if he doesn't change he needs selling. This team has helped make him a star and he needs to show some appreciation rather than throwing tantrums.”
Arsenal interested in Belotti but will have to stump up £50 million to sign him
With the futures of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil at the Emirates Stadium in doubt at the moment, Arsenal are said to be preparing for the worst case scenario of both their superstars leaving at the end of the season and the Gunners have been linked with a host of names as potential replacements for the duo in recent times.
In reports from the Sun, it has now been claimed that Arsenal are currently casting a keen eye on Italian international Andrea Belotti but they are facing a huge obstacle in the prospective signing of the 23-year-old due to Torino’s £50 million valuation of the player.
A source in Italy revealed to the English Newspaper, "Arsenal have an option for Belotti from Torino, and he is available for 60m Euros.
“That is to get him now before any other teams come in for him, but Arsenal will not pay that amount just yet. They will wait to see what happens with him this season, and think about moving for him again in the summer."
Arsenal considering a move for Antoine Griezmann
Antoine Griezmann is arguably one of the hottest properties in world football at the moment and it is widely expected that the French superstar will be leaving Atletico Madrid over the summer, with a host of clubs interested in his services.
Now if reports from the Metro are to be believed, even Premier League giants Arsenal have joined in the race to sign Griezmann and the Gunners allegedly view the 25-year-old as a potential replacement for the wantaway Alexis Sanchez.
