Arsenal Star in talks with former team mates about transfer



Alexis Sanchez

According to reports, Brazilian duo of Neymar Jr and Dani Alves have been trying to tempt unsettled Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez to join them at Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain this summer transfer window.

The Chile international forward has been strongly linked with a transfer away from the Emirate Stadium after entering the final year of his Arsenal deal.

European heavyweights like big spenders Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City have shown interest in signing the want away Chilean.

And according to Spanish publication Don Balon, his former team-mates at Barcelona Neymar Jr and Dani Alves have been trying to lure him to join them in Paris.

Neymar Jr left Barcelona for PSG in a world transfer record £198million deal earlier this summer, while Dani Alves joined PSG on a free after leaving Serie A giants Juventus this summer.

But the Parisians also face fierce competition from Premier League side Manchester City, with Spanish publication Don Balon adding City are preparing a £60m offer for him.

Pep Guardiola also worked with the 28-year-old forward during his time at Camp Nou before selling him to North London club Arsenal for about £35m back in 2014.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is keen on keeping Sanchez for the last season of his deal, despite the risk of losing him on a free transfer next summer.

Arsenal are thought to have offered the Chilean a whopping £300,000-weekly contract to remain at the club, but he is not planning to extend his stay.
