Alexis Sanchez is in talks with Paris Saint-Germain, according to L’Equipe.
The Gunners started the Premier League campaign with a win in a 7-goal thriller at the Emirates Stadium on Friday. Alexis Sanchez did not participate in the game, but watched his team clinch the three points from the stands. The Chilean is in the final year of his contract, but it appears he might not stay in London for much longer.
According to some reports, the player was spotted in Paris with his agent and his lawyer. These claims were later on confirmed by L’Equipe through their journalist – Bertrand Latour.

Alexis is believed to be negotiating with PSG as he has made it clear that he demands Champions League football – something that Arsenal will not be part of in the 2017-18 campaign.
The most likely outcome of the situation, however, is that Alexis Sanchez would not sign a new contract and remain with Arsenal until January 2018, then the Chilean will likely join PSG as a free agent.
