The Sanchez transfer saga was the biggest talking point this summer as Arsenal rejected Manchester City’s £60 million bid as they failed to sign his replacement Thomas Lemar from Monaco. The saga has taken a new turn as Arsenal are rumored to be agreed for Sanchez – Draxler swap deal.
Draxler played an important role in Germany’s Confederation Cup win
Wenger will finally get his long-term target
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been a long-term admirer of the German striker and even attempted to sign him during his move from Schalke to PSG. The swap deal will finally bring the exact player Wenger wanted to have at Emirates.
PSG’s record-breaking signings of Neymar and Mbappe has definitely increased the competition in the team which may cost Draxler his game time.
“I am greatly looking forward to playing with [Neymar and Mbappe] but, if players are bought for €222 million or €180m, they have an advantage on paper,’
‘But I am confident – that’s why I didn’t think about leaving Paris.”
Draxler was reportedly looking for a move out of PSG’s this summer market but failed to get out.Draxler had no regular starts so far for PSG and has scored 5 goals from 23 matches for them, thus a move to Emirates is very likely to happen as he will get more game time under Wenger.
Sanchez can make PSG more clinical in front of goal
The Chilean goal machine will definitely add more spark to PSG attack who already have quality players like Neymar and Mbappe at front.
With Cavani’s stay looking uncertain at PSG, they would definitely love to replace him with Sanchez.
The Chilean has decided to move out of Emirates next transfer window and has recently met PSG’s chief discussing a possible move once he runs out of his Arsenal contract, thus Arsenal would definitely try to get maximum benefits out of Sanchez’ move.
Manchester City were believed to be the frontrunners to sign the Chilean striker but PSG’s spending spree makes them more favorites now.
“City’s pursuit of Alexis could be in trouble. Pep is sure he wants to join the club but Paris are sniffing.
They still have the funds to sign him and can beat City’s wage offer. They will also pay him a huge signing on fee.” said a source close to Sanchez.
The swap deal would be highly beneficial for the both teams. Both players wanting a move out makes this deal very likely to happen. With Cavani linking to other teams after fall out with Neymar, Sanchez will be his perfect replacement. Draxler who will surely get enough game time at Emirates giving him a chance to showcase his talent at more demanding Premier League.
