Arsenal could make a move for Julian Draxler in January as part of a swap deal which will see Alexis Sanchez move the other way, according to reports.
With Alexis set to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season, Arsenal are considering selling him if a suitable offer is received in the new year.
Manchester City, Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain are all believed to be interested in the Chilean and the French club appear to 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 direct rival), it will also provide us the perfect opportunity to sign a direct replacement.
According to the Daily Cannon, Draxler is unhappy at PSG and Arsenal are now considering a swap deal which would see him arrive here while Sanchez goes the other way.
Draxler who joined PSG in January has fallen down the pecking order due to the arrival of Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappe. He feels he deserves to be playing regularly, after racking up an impressive 10 goals in 25 games in first six months at Paris.
Draxler could be a good replacement for Sanchez, although he has a lot to do before he can reach the Chilean’s level, he has the potential to reach that level. Arsene Wenger has spoken glowingly about the winger in the past and we’ve been monitoring since his time at Schalke.
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.
