The Gunners are still hopeful that they will manage to land the German winger.
Although they have made it clear that they are not interested in selling Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal are trying to get cover in case a late Manchester City offer will prove too hard to refuse. Julian Draxler of PSG is the player identified by Arsene Wenger as a quality replacement for the Chilean.
PSG need to offload some of their players following the record-breaking transfer of Neymar Jr. from Barcelona and the prospect of signing Mbappe from Monaco in the second most expensive deal in history. For this reason, the Parisians are willing to let Julian Draxler go. Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have been linked with moves for the German international and now, according to The Mirror, Arsenal have re-entered the race for the 23-year-old.
The Gunners have previously been linked with the German, but now it seems like the interest is real and an official bid will be submitted in the coming hours. Arsene Wenger told Manchester City that he will not sell Alexis Sanchez because he wouldn’t have the time to find a valuable replacement for him. But, if Draxler will move to Emirates, then it might open the door for Alexis to make the switch to Etihad.
