Arsenal could make a move for Julian Draxler in January as part of a swap deal which will involve Alexis Sanchez, according to reports.
With Alexis set to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season, Arsenal are considering letting him leave in January rather than losing him for nothing in the summer.
Manchester City, Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain are all believed to be interested in the Chilean but it is City who are leading the race to sign the forward.
However, the French club would be the perfect club for Arsenal to do business with, not just because it will stop us from playing against Sanchez in the league (something that would happen if he joins a City), it will also provide us the perfect opportunity to sign a direct replacement.
According to the Daily Cannon, A swap deal involving Draxler and Sanchez could happen in January as Wenger steps up his effort to sign a replacement.
Draxler is unhappy at PSG after falling down Unai Emery’s pecking order due to the arrival of Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappe.
He could now decide to move elsewhere for regular football and Arsenal are believed to be a possible destination
In my opinion, I think the deal would make sense for all parties involved. Arsenal will be getting a direct replacement for Sanchez, PSG will be getting their top target while Draxler will be moving to a club where he can fulfill his potential.
