PSG favourites to land Alexis Sanchez

Paris Saint-Germain have emerged as front-runners for the signature of Arsenal and Chile forward Alexis Sanchez.

With the Chilean stars contract running out in June, it is very unlikely Alexis Sanchez will be signing an extended contract.

The player almost joined Premier League rivals Manchester City this summer after a £60m bid for the forward was accepted on transfer deadline day. However, the bid came too late and the deal could not be completed in time.

It was thought that Man City will be renewing their bid for the player in the January transfer window, but the club are willing to wait until the summer to get the player on a free.

However, we understand Arsenal will look to sell the player in January rather than loose him for nothing next summer.

Another big club interested in the player is Bayern Munich, but they are also looking to sign him on a pre-contract with a view to free move over the summer.

It puts the Gunners in a difficult position as the player does not want to extend his deal beyond the summer, with all clubs interested in signing him unwilling to stump up a fee for a player who they can sign for nothing in six months time.

Mirror Sports understands French club PSG are willing to make an offer of £350k a week to sign Sanchez on a free transfer next summer.

The Parisians see Sanchez as an ideal replacement for Neymar who only joined the club for a world record fee of £200m last summer.

There is growing speculation the Brazilian forward will be returning back to Spain next summer with Real Madrid favourites for his signature.

Neymar has had a troubled start to his career in Ligue 1 so far. His constant pre-madonna demands and arguments with Edinson Cavani and coach Urai Emery have lead to speculation he wants out of France.

Rumours are going around he feels the French Ligue 1 is not up to the high standards of La Liga or the Premier League.
